Air Fryer Asparagus fries Today I skipped deep fry and used an air fryer. Lately, I found cooking in the air fryer super comfortable and easy. There is no oil, mess, and smell, just a bunch of asparagus deliciously ready in some minutes.

Spring is all about fresh and tender asparagus stalks. This is why I am making a lot of asparagus recipes, especially in spring. You can check some of my simplest ones:

These asparagus recipes will satisfy even the most pretentious guests as they are tasty and much healthier than some ordinary potato fries. I like asparagus, and in the season, I am trying to make more recipes for this amazing veggie. Either soup, quiches, or baked next to some meat, asparagus is always a good idea for a healthy lifestyle.

These crispy asparagus fries pair perfectly with any dipping sauces. For example, you can serve these amazing fries next to our famous Bang Bang Sauce or Chick fil A Sauce Copycat.

The Coating for Asparagus Fries:

Air Fryer Asparagus fries Before sending asparagus spears to the air fryer, we should dip them in a thick layer of coating.

For this recipe, I have used a fluffy egg coating and a lot of parmesan cheese. So, make sure you have on hand all ingredients needed. Separate eggs into two bowls. Crack the egg gently as close to the middle as possible. Working over a bowl, gently separate the egg halves. Let the yolk settle in one egg shell while the whites flow off the sides of the egg into the bowl. Then pour the yolk into a separate bowl.

Air Fryer Asparagus fries Grab the bowl with yolks and stir in 3 – 4 tbsp of cold water and one tablespoon of vegetable oil. Then add flour and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Now whip the egg whites until you get firm peaks. Using a spatula, incorporate the beaten egg whites into the yolk mixture. Transfer the coating to a shallow plate.

How to make Air Fryer Asparagus Fries?

This crispy air fryer asparagus fries recipe involves just a short list of ingredients. Once you have the coating prepared, let’s proceed.

Grate some parmesan on a separate shallow plate. Wash, clean, and pat dry asparagus spears if needed.

Air Fryer Asparagus fries Lightly grease the air fryer basket with vegetable oil or spray it with cooking spray. Dip each asparagus into the egg coating, then into the grated parmesan. Lay spears in a single layer in the basket. Set your Air Fryer to 400 °F. Cook for 10 minutes. No need to flip!

For note: No problem if you do not have an Air Fryer. Bake these asparagus fries in the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Repeat the steps of coating. Arrange fries on a parchment paper-lined baking tray. Bake for about 20 minutes.

Toss the asparagus fries in the bowl and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
