Roasting Asparagus In Air Fryer
Much like the Air Fryer Mushrooms and Air Fryer Corn on the Cob, I don’t think I’ll be roasting asparagus in my oven ever again. Air fried asparagus turns out just as great (perhaps better) in a fraction of the time.
Asparagus roasted in the air fryer turns out tender with that great brown color. And, unlike oven roasting, I have found that the tips are far less likely to burn in the air fryer.
Is Air Fryer Asparagus Keto
Asparagus is one of those great vegetables for the low-carb Keto diet. So yes, air fried asparagus definitely fits into a Keto lifestyle.
Plus asparagus is just an overall healthy side dish. It is low in calories and high in nutrients.
