We love all things cooked in the Air Fryer! And broccoli comes out perfect every time. Cook it fresh or frozen, as long as the pieces are evenly sized, air frying broccoli is a great, low carb way to enjoy your veggies. Something about the Air Fryer just brings out the savory flavor of broccoli, so read on to find out how.
How To Cook Broccoli In Air Fryer
Super easy and super delicious, Air Fryer Roasted Broccoli is ready in minutes!
- Always start with clean, uniformly shaped broccoli pieces, bite-sized or fork-sized.
- Toss broccoli with oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
- Set the coated broccoli pieces in a preheated Air Fryer and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes. For frozen pieces, cook about 9 to 11 minutes.
PRO TIP: Use a zippered bag to toss the broccoli with oil and seasonings. It is super quick and makes clean up a snap!
What Should I Serve With Broccoli?
- Air Fryer Roasted Broccoli stands on its own as a side dish, but we like to serve it with some fun and tasty low carb dips like Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, or a Keto Dill Dip.
- If you are serving air fryer roasted broccoli as a side dish, it goes great with Air Fryer Chicken Breasts or drumsticks, or a tasty Crockpot Mississippi Roast.
- Air Fryer Roasted Broccoli is just as good the next day! Keep it stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3 days.
