  • Lightly spray them with cooking spray then season with salt and either nutritional yeast or parmesan cheese if using.
  • Air fry at 400°F (200°C) for 7 to 10 minutes. If you're asparagus is thinner, it will take less time to cook, but thicker stalks will take closer to 10 minutes to cook through. Pause the air fryer to check at 7 minutes. If they're not a little crispy and tender, place them back in for another minute or so.
  • Serve right away or store in an air tight container for up to 3 days.


*Nutritional information does not include nutritional yeast or parmesan cheese
How to store: store the cooked asparagus in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
