This spicy air fryer asparagus recipe is the perfect plant based snack or side dish. My family and I love asparagus and it’s really healthy too. Asparagus in the air fryer is easy, healthy, and delicious. Interestingly, asparagus is found in one of the oldest surviving recipes known to mankind!
It circulates hot air around food in order to cook it. Most air fryer models come in a two-liter to six-liter capacity and can cost anywhere from $70 to $200 depending on the model.
Asparagus in the air fryer is so healthy. It is low in calories and rich in protein and fiber. Asparagus provides vitamin A, thiamine, and riboflavin. Also vitamin K, calcium, iron, and a variety of other nutrients. I love make asparagus in my air fryer because they get a crispy outer texture like French fries.
You only need a few simple ingredients to make this spicy air fryer asparagus recipe. All you need is about 12 asparagus spears
1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp chipotle powder seasoning, or seasoning of your choice. It’s also helpful to use non stick cooking spray in the air fryer basket.
Start making asparagus in the air fryer by cutting the bottoms off the asparagus spears. Spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with non stick cooking spray. Place the asparagus spears flat in the air fryer basket, ensure they are not overlapping
Sprinkle the asparagus evenly with the seasoning. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F. Cook them for 10 minutes. The asparagus will be fully cooked, however if you like them a little more crispy, cook for another 5 minutes.
