  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • ½ teaspoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)


  • Wash and trim broccoli.
  • Toss with oil, then toss with garlic powder, pepper, onion powder, and salt.
  • Place broccoli into the air fryer.
  • Cook at 400°F for 6 minutes. Shake the container after 3 minutes to make sure it’s cooking evenly. All machines cook differently so yours may cook faster.
  • Remove from the air fryer. Toss and serve, adding additional salt and pepper to taste.


  • Optional: when the broccoli is done, sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan or drizzle with lemon juice.
  • Trim broccoli to equal sizes to have them cook evenly.
  • Broccoli tastes great when it is cooked until bright green or even a little browned
    on the edges.
  • Use an oil that can be cooked at high heat.
  • Use your favorite seasonings. Try chili powder, cumin, curry powder, parsley or anything you like. If you use fresh garlic, don’t add it until the last 2-3 minutes of cooking.
