Air Fryer Broccoli Recipe: The BEST Way!

Broccoli is always a great side dish but cooking it can be a challenge! Cooking broccoli in your air fryer takes away all the guesswork, so you get perfectly cooked broccoli florets every time.

I could go on and on about how much I love my air fryer, but I’ll just share this – you can cook so many things in it with a fraction of the oil. I love that with veggie side dishes because I like to keep them as light and healthy as possible.

Broccoli is just one of many things I love to air fry. It’s so simple!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

I love roasted vegetables, but sometimes I don’t want to turn on the oven, or I’m using the oven for something else – so, hello, air fryer!

I think air fryer broccoli tastes even better than oven-roasted broccoli. You can use a lot less oil and the broccoli cooks evenly. It comes out hot, tender, and crispy around the edges.

Sometimes when I roast it in the oven, it comes out too soft, or some florets are still too crisp. I don’t have that problem with the air fryer.

Don’t even get me started with boiled broccoli – that’s the saddest ever! If this is the only way you’ve cooked it well, friend, you need to get an air fryer if you haven’t already!

For this air fryer broccoli recipe, I toss the florets with some seasonings, pop them in the air fryer, and about six minutes later, it’s done. It’s faster than the oven!

This Is such an easy side dish – it’s ready in less than 15 minutes! It goes with so many main dishes you’ll make it on repeat.
