Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for serving)
  • Lemon wedges (optional, for serving)


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Broccoli:
    • Cut the broccoli head into florets, making sure they are relatively uniform in size for even cooking.
    • Place the broccoli florets in a mixing bowl.
  3. Season the Broccoli:
    • Drizzle the olive oil over the broccoli florets.
    • Add minced garlic (if using) for extra flavor.
    • Season with salt and black pepper according to your taste preferences.
  4. Toss to Coat:
    • Toss the broccoli florets in the olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper until they are evenly coated.
  5. Air Fry the Broccoli:
    • Place the seasoned broccoli florets in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not overcrowded. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
    • Air fry at 400°F (200°C) for about 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time for even crisping.
  6. Check Doneness:
    • The broccoli should be tender and slightly crispy with golden edges when done. Cook for an additional minute or two if needed.
  7. Serve:
    • Remove the air fryer roasted broccoli from the basket and transfer it to a serving dish.
    • Optionally, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the roasted broccoli for added flavor.
    • Serve hot with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the broccoli before eating.


  • You can customize the seasoning for your air fryer roasted broccoli by adding herbs like dried oregano, thyme, or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for spice.
  • Feel free to experiment with different types of cheese for topping, such as shredded cheddar or crumbled feta.
  • Serve the roasted broccoli as a side dish alongside grilled chicken, steak, or fish for a complete meal.
