BLESS THIS MESS
Making Air Fryer Asparagus is a breeze, and you'll be amazed at how simple it is to achieve crispy perfection in no time.
Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes. Rinse the asparagus spears and pat them dry.
Trim the bottom ends of the asparagus, about 1-2 inches, depending on the toughness.
Place the trimmed asparagus in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Toss until all the spears are evenly coated.
Arrange the asparagus in the air fryer basket in a single layer. It's okay if they overlap a little, but it's best if air can circulate around them.
Air fry for 7-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are. Shake the basket or turn the asparagus halfway through cooking to ensure even cooking.
Check the asparagus for doneness at around 7 minutes. They should be tender and slightly crisp. Once done, you can squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the asparagus if you'd like.
