How to Make Air Fryer Broccoli

Preheat air fryer


Preheat for a few minutes at 400 degrees F. Trim broccoli. Cut the broccoli florets so they are the same size.

In a large bowl drizzle oil over broccoli florets and sprinkle with seasonings (see list below for ideas). Toss to coat and transfer broccoli to air fryer basket in a single layer.


Air fry broccoli

Roast broccoli in the air fryer for 6-8 minutes, depending on how done you want it. Shake air fryer basket after 3 minutes.


How long to cook broccoli in air fryer?


The cooking time will vary a bit on your broccoli size, your air fryer, and how roasted you want them. I recommend trimming the broccoli to about 1 inch pieces and start checking at 6 minutes. After 6 minutes of cooking, it will be lightly roasted with a tender texture, without much charring. After 8 minutes of cooking, it will be a bit crunchy with lots of charring.
