Air Fryer Asparagus is one of those things that now I am kicking myself for not making sooner! I love that it can work out to zero or low smart points on WW! This works for the My WW Green, My WW Blue, and My WW Purple plans as well! (I have included affiliate links to products I love. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.)
Asparagus is one of those iron-rich vegetables that thankfully the kids love as well! We tend to have this as a side often, and thankfully we find it often at our local farm stand for a great price too! Now bacon is my favorite way to cook up asparagus but we love finding new ways to cook it too!
Air Fryer Asparagus Ingredients:
How To Cook Air Fryer Asparagus:
Snap the ends of your asparagus off, I bend them and let them naturally snap at the spot it gives in the thicker end of the asparagus. You can use scissors to clip the ends of them off.
Wash your asparagus off in a strainer and allow them to dry off, I love to use an over-the-sink strainer for this.
If you need to pat dry your asparagus before getting ready to cook.
Spray your air fryer rack or basket. I personally have the PowerXL 8 Quart Air Fryer that I received to review and love it, the racks work amazing for cooking for a bigger family.

The next couple of steps will vary depending on how you are cooking your asparagus.
If cooking with bacon wrap a slice of bacon around 2-3 pieces and stick together with a toothpick.
If cooking with oil and seasonings coat in olive oil spread out on your rack and then season.
For cooking with cheese coat your asparagus with oil and then spread out on the rack.
Ways To Make Air Fryer Asparagus:
Bacon-Wrapped- Wrap a piece of bacon around the asparagus and flip thru the cooking time to make sure both sides
