Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 2 cups (200 grams) Fresh Asparagus with the ends trimmed (about 2 inches)
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil Spray
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • Nutritional yeast optional

If making with mushrooms

  • ⅔ cup (50 grams) mushrooms sliced into quarters
  • ⅛ cup (20 grams) almonds soaked in warm water for at least 15 minutes
  • 1 tsp rosemary chopped


  • Start by washing and trimming the ends of the asparagus (about 2 inches just to get rid off the woody part). 
  • Spray with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and ground black pepper.. If using mushrooms, add the chopped mushrooms as well.
  • Cook in the air fryer basket for 8 minutes at 390F (200c). When ready, serve. If you're making asparagus with mushrooms, then arrange the asparagus and mushrooms in a plate, top with chopped almonds and rosemary.


If you're avoiding oil, use low sodium soy sauce instead.
