These tasty asparagus spears are so simple to make. I’ve made these in the oven before, but using the Air Fryer makes it even quicker and easier. There is no need to preheat the oven, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen like an oven does, and one of my favorite reasons to use the air fryer is the ease of clean-up. The inside basket and base basket are light weight and a breeze to clean.
Lightly spritz the asparagus with avocado oil or olive oil using an oil spritzer like this Evo Oil Sprayer. I bought this set of two when I bought the air-fryer and I really like how easy they are to use. (As of today, June 26, there is a coupon for $4 off the set on Amazon when you purchase, just be sure to click the coupon to apply it to your order. )
You could also cut your asparagus up into smaller lengths, but I really like how dramatic they look long. Ha.
This recipe makes it easy for me to get more vegetables in my diet. I made the green beans and sausage recipe in my Instant Pot while the asparagus was cooking in my Air Fryer and it was all so easy and the kitchen didn’t get hot at all.

I don’t have a microwave so I use the air fryer to quickly heat up left overs, make muffin in a mug recipes, and make fun recipes like my Fried Onion Rings.
