About Nine Minutes for Prep

11 minutes for cooking
Twenty minutes in total


  1. 1 bunch of asparagus, tough ends trimmed
  2. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  3. 2 tablespoons bread crumbs (optional)
  4. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  5. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  6. Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Set your air fryer’s temperature for three to five minutes at 400°F (200°C).
  2. Grated Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs (if using), olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder should all be combined in a shallow plate. Blend thoroughly to achieve a paste-like texture.
  3. Make sure every asparagus spear has an even coating of Parmesan cheese on all sides by dipping it into the mixture.
  4. Make sure the coated asparagus spears are not packed too tightly in the air fryer basket by placing them in a single layer.
  5. For 8 to 10 minutes, or until the asparagus are soft and the Parmesan crust is golden brown and crispy, air fry them at 400°F (200°C).
  6. When the asparagus is finished, carefully take it out of the air fryer basket and serve right away.
  7. Before serving, you can want to add some more grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh herbs as garnish.
  8. Savour your crunchy asparagus with a Parmesan coating right out of the air fryer.
