Easy Air Fryer Asparagus

We all love asparagus! Air fried asparagus is one of our favorite side dishes to accompany steak, roast chicken or fish. This truly is one of the most simple ways to enjoy asparagus in the air fryer. The crispy textures are fantastic and the air fryer asparagus has a wonderful roasted flavor and texture. All it takes is a little olive oil, salt and pepper. If you want more flavor, sprinkle some of your favorite spices on the asparagus such as garlic powder or lemon pepper seasonings. Squeeze a little lemon on top and you have the perfect side dish to dinner!

More great air fryer side dishes to have a side dish are: Crispy broccoli , easy roast potatoes, garlic mushrooms and brussels sprouts. All our air fried vegetable side dishes are simple and have wonderful roasted flavor. That’s why we’re so obsessed with cooking vegetables in the air fryer. The crispy flavors can’t be beat.

What are the Best Air Fryers?

There’s so many on the market now. You just need to research and find the ones that fits your needs, capacity and style. We group the basket style air fryers into 2 main size groups: 3-4 qt range & the 5-6 qt. range.  Here’s our favorites:

Cosori 3.7 qt. Digital Air Fryer – “That’s a stylish Air Fryer” was said as we unboxed the Cosori. Beyond being stylish, it has cooked great. The basket is not as tall and wider than most in its size group, which is perfect. You’ll have a lot better results in an air fryer with single layered, spread out foods, then with ones piled high and thick.
The non-stick basket style (non-wire base) & smoothness of the basket tray is also great for clean up.

Ninja 4 qt. Digital Air Fryer – Has a great ceramic coated basket, one of the longest lasting we’ve used. Super powerful fan that will often cook recipes even faster than other air fryers. We initially returned our first one because we thought we wouldn’t like the basket style. After reconsidering, we bought another and are super glad we did. We love it’s basket and just a platform insert. One less bulky thing to wash. This is a great air fryer.

Good Larger Air Fryers

Tiluxury Air Fryer 5.8 qtTiluxury 5.8 qt. Digital Air Fryer – It’s a good larger air fryer capable of cooking for larger families, especially when you need to cook more food. It’s great for cooking bigger batches (ie 4 salmon fillets instead of 2 or 2 lbs of fries instead of 1).
We like that this Tiluxury 5.8 qt has the non-stick basket (non-wire base). Makes for less sticking for delicate meals (ie baked fish fillets).  And we like the digital interface (easier cleaning).
Gourmia 6 qt. Digital Air Fryer – This is quickly becoming one of our favorite larger basket style air fryers. Great basket size, good controls, cooks nice. Clean up is great. It has become one of our kitchen favorites. We’ll often find it as Costco at a great price too!
