  • 1 pound asparagus


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian dried herbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  • Rinse asparagus and dry well with a kitchen towel.
  • Slice about 1/2-1 inch off the bottom and discard.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Mix the seasoning ingredients in a bowl.
  • Arrange asparagus on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil and the Seasoning mixture
  • Arrange it in the air fryer in one layer, work in batches if needed.
  • Cook for 6-10 minutes or until tender-crisp and lightly roasted on the outside.



  • Thinner asparagus will take about 6-7 minutes to cook, and thicker will take closer to 10 minutes.
  • Choose spears that are neither too thin (has a tendency to burn) or too thick (may not be as tender). 
  • Check the vegetables at the 5-minute mark. Keep in mind that air fryers have different wattages, and cooking time will also depend on the size and thickness of the stalks.
  • You can use any type of asparagus for this recipe— white, green, or purple.
