I recently purchased an air fryer, and now I am wondering why I didn’t buy one sooner. This is a purchase I had been going back and forth on for a while. I wanted it but didn’t want to spend the money. Wondered if it was really a worthwhile purchase. After much back and forth, I just went for it. I purchased the Ninja Air Fryer and started cooking as soon as it arrived.
WHY DID I NOT BUY THIS EARLIER!?! This is my new favorite kitchen appliance and I will be creating a ton of air fryer recipes from here on out.
Air Fryer Asparagus
When my air fryer arrived, the first thing I made was air fryer asparagus. I wanted something super easy and quick that my kids would love. Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables, and my kids enjoy it somewhat even if it isn’t their favorite.
How can I make asparagus better? More of a kid-friendly vegetable? I could lie and tell them they are green beans… No shame in the fact I HAVE done that one before. Or, I could load them up with everything bagel seasoning.
I swear, this seasoning instantly makes everything taste better. My favorite snack lately has been avocado with everything seasoning. So, I decided to use the same seasoning on my asparagus and air fry away!
Everything But The Asparagus
All you need to recreate this air fryer recipe is asparagus, olive oil, everything bagel seasoning, and some grated parm (the powdery kind works fine).
Start by cleaning up your asparagus. Wash and cut off as much of the end as you prefer. Toss the vegetable in a little bit of olive oil. You only want a small amount of oil, enough to coat the asparagus and have it be “wet”. You don’t want too much oil since it is going to go into the air fryer and too much oil will just fly around in there when it is cooking.
Once you have the asparagus coated, season with your everything bagel seasoning and parm cheese. I honestly did not measure either when I made this. I sprinkled until my soul was content. A rough estimate would be 1-2 Tbsp of each so your veggies are nice and coated.
Preheat your air fryer to 390° for 3 minutes. Once it is heated, pour the asparagus into your fryer basket and cook for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes are up, remove the basket and shake. Place it back in the fryer and cook for 5 more minutes.
And you are done! about 5 minutes of prep and 10 minutes of cook time will get you this delicious side that will make everyone believe you are the best chef in the universe!
