Air Fryer Roasted Broccoli

Air Fryer Grilled Broccoli is a quick and easy healthy air fryer recipe. A great option if you are looking for a quick side dish with all the flavor of oven-roasted broccoli.

How to Roast Broccoli in the Air Fryer

Roasted broccoli is so delicious, and healthy too, and air frying is a great way to cook it.

I love roasting in my air fryer. It is quick and relatively mess free, but also there is no need to wait for the oven to heat up, and having your entire kitchen heat up with it!

How to Prepare Broccoli for Air Frying

Broccoli is easy to prepare. Just cut into to florets, rinse, and dry. It is very important to get it as dry as you can before air frying, because this allows the broccoli to start roasting straight away, instead of evaporating the water before this can happen.

Place the broccoli in the air fryer basket and give a couple of spays of oil. Then you are ready to air fry!

How Long to Air Fry Broccoli?

How long to cook the broccoli for depends on how much you are cooking, as well as how powerful/efficient your particular air fryer is. The times in the recipe below are right for a whole head of broccoli (cut into florets) in my Philips XXL Viva airfryer.

If you are cooking less than a whole head, or have a different model of air fryer, I would recommend checking on the broccoli when there are 5 minutes cooking times and adjusting the cook time accordingly.

Roasted broccoli is ready when it is tender and browned at its edges.
