  • Air Fryer


  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • garlic salt to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Trim the hard ends off of the asparagus.
  • Drizzle the asparagus with the olive oil and season with garlic salt, salt, and pepper as desired.
  • Spray the bottom of the air fryer pan with non-stick cooking spray for easy clean up.
  • Place the asparagus in a single layer in the bottom of the air fryer.
  • Set the air fryer to 400 degrees and set the timer for 8 minutes. If asparagus is thin, start checking for doneness at 6 minutes.


You could substitute garlic salt with garlic powder, if desired.
When asparagus is done cooking, it is delicious if you squeeze the juice from 1/2 a lemon on top and sprinkle with a little big of Parmesan cheese.
If your air fryer is smaller, you might have to cook your bunch of asparagus in separate batches.
