Print Recipe


  • 1 Pound asparagus spears 1 bunch, pencil thick spears
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 lemon wedges optional


  • Rinse the asparagus under cool water, then trim the ends of the asparagus just where it turns from white to green.
  • Place the asparagus in the air fryer basket and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Place the basket in the air fryer and set it to 400°F. Cook the asparagus for 5-6 minutes or until it is your desired level of doneness.
  • Remove the asparagus from the air fryer and sprinkle with salt or other seasonings and a drizzle of lemon juice, if desired.


If your asparagus is thinner or thicker you will need to adjust the cooking time.
For very thin asparagus start at 3 minutes, and then check for doneness.  Add more time in 1-minute intervals if it is not cooked enough.
