Air Fryer Asparagus Tips

  • Thinner asparagus stalks will cook about 5 minutes.
  • Thicker asparagus stalks will cook closer to 7-8 minutes.
  • I suggest starting with the shorter time, then checking the asparagus. If they are done to your liking take them out of the air fryer. If they are not done, cook 1-2 minutes longer and check again.
