Easy Air Fryer Roasted Broccoli
- 3-4 cups fresh broccoli florets (cut)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil spray
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon Herbes de Provence seasoning optional
- Drizzle the broccoli with the olive oil or spray with cooking oil. Sprinkle the seasonings throughout.
- Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil. Load the broccoli. Cook for 5-8 minutes on 360 degrees.
- Once the broccoli has cooked for 5 minutes, open the air fryer and examine the broccoli. Every air fryer brand cooks differently. I prefer my roasted broccoli to have a little char, but I don’t like it burnt. Use your judgment to ensure the broccoli isn’t over cooked.
