If you love oven roasted broccoli, but want it fast, make air fryer broccoli. This easy recipe makes perfectly roasted broccoli with a crisp, tender texture. 


  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets (about 2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Arrange broccoli in a single layer in the air fryer basket so that it cooks evenly. Drizzle with olive oil.
  2. Air fry for 5 minutes at 400°F. Flip broccoli halfway through to cook evenly. Cook for 5 more minutes.


  • Use tongs to handle hot broccoli
  • For tender broccoli, cook broccoli the recommended cook time
  • For crispy air fryer broccoli, cook broccoli a few more minutes, flipping halfway through. Add cook time until you get crispy broccoli
  • Flipping halfway through ensures evenly cooked broccoli
  • If using seasonings, it's best to season broccoli a couple of minutes before cook time is over
