Instant Vortex Plus Asparagus (air fryer)

  • Author: RecipeTeacher


Perfectly “roasted” asparagus in your Instant Vortex Plus air fryer.


  • 1 lb fresh asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • pepper to taste


  1. Set your Instant Vortex Plus to air fry at 400 degrees (F) for 6 minutes (extra thin asparagus use 4-5 minutes; extra thick asparagus use 8-10 minutes). Preheating will begin.
  2. While air fryer is heating, cut the woody ends, about 2 inches off the bottom of the asparagus, coat with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. When Vortex Plus is ready, carefully open door and use a silicone mitt to pull out the tray in the middle rack position and load up the asparagus. Close door and cycle will begin.
  4. When the indicator beeps about 1/2 way through, carefully turn the asparagus with tongs.
  5. When air fryer cycle is complete, carefully remove asparagus and it’s ready to serve.
