Equipment

  • Air fryer

Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes (optional)

Instructions

  • Rinse the asparagus very well. The tips can collect grit and dirt. I like to fill up a large cup or mason jar with water, and store the asparagus upside down (tips in the water) for a few hours, to let the dirt rinse out. Cut off the woody ends of the asparagus.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the asparagus, salt, olive oil and garlic powder and mix well
  • Let your air fryer pre-heat to 400 degrees. Then add the asparagus to the air fryer and cook for 7 minutes.
  • Add in the cherry tomatoes and cook for another 2 minutes, or until the tomatoes are blistered.
  • Plate up and enjoy! These cool quickly, so eat as soon as they come out of the air fryer.
