  • Preheat an air fryer to 380ºF.
  • Prepare the asparagus by trimming their woodsy ends.
  • Place the asparagus in a large bowl along with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  • Transfer the asparagus to the air fryer and shake the basket to make sure they're in a single layer. You may need to cook in two batches. Cook until crisp tender, shaking the basket halfway through, for 8-10 minutes total. The asparagus will continue to soften after finished cooking so make sure not to overcook.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice on top and serve immediately.


Storage: Keep any leftover asparagus in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Air fryer asparagus will last 3-4 days in the fridge. To reheat, you can give the cooked spears a few seconds in the microwave, or place them back in the air fryer for a couple of minutes. Just keep a close eye so they don’t overcook.
