Super simple and simply super. Air Fryer Asparagus is the fastest, easiest way to achieve side dish nirvana. Just toss these tasty stalks with salt, pepper, and olive oil, and in 6 minutes you've got veggie perfection!
Trim the asparagus ends, then place into the basket of the air fryer. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper, then gently toss until the asparagus is evenly coated.
Program the air fryer to 400°F for 6 minutes; remove the basket and shake once halfway through. If the asparagus isn't cooked to taste, return the basket to the air fryer and cook 1-2 minutes longer (especially for thicker asparagus spears).
Season to taste with balsamic reduction or vinegar, or season with a lemon juice and grated parmesan cheese.
