1. Air Fryer Asparagus with Garlic Parmesan


  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus spears
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).

Wash the asparagus spears and trim off the tough ends by snapping them off at their natural breaking point.

In a mixing bowl, combine the minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir well to create a flavorful marinade.

Place the asparagus spears in the air fryer basket and drizzle the garlic and olive oil mixture over them. Toss the asparagus gently to ensure even coating.

Set the air fryer to cook at 400°F (200°C) for 8-10 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender and slightly crispy.

Carefully remove the asparagus from the air fryer and transfer it to a serving dish.

Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese evenly over the asparagus, allowing it to melt and adhere to the spears.

Serve the Air Fryer Asparagus with Garlic Parmesan immediately, accompanied by lemon wedges for an extra burst of freshness.

The air fryer works its magic by circulating hot air around the food, creating a crispy exterior while retaining the natural moisture inside. In the case of asparagus, the air fryer transforms the spears into perfectly cooked delights with a satisfying crunch. The garlic-infused olive oil marinade adds a burst of flavor, while the Parmesan cheese creates a deliciously savory and cheesy coating.

The Air Fryer Asparagus with Garlic Parmesan recipe can be easily customized to suit your taste preferences. If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the garlic and olive oil marinade. You can also experiment with different seasonings, such as smoked paprika or dried herbs like thyme or basil, to add depth and variety to the dish
