Use your air fryer to crisp up tender asparagus for a simple and easy side dish. If your air fryer is large enough, you can cook the asparagus in one batch. If it's smaller, cook the asparagus in two batches, keeping the first batch warm as the second batch cooks.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F for 5 minutes. Combine asparagus, oil, pepper and salt in a large bowl; toss well to coat. Working in batches, if necessary, arrange the asparagus in an even layer in the basket. Cook until tender and lightly crisped on the ends, 6 to 7 minutes. (If necessary, transfer the asparagus to a serving dish and cover with foil. Repeat the process with the remaining asparagus.) Serve immediately.
