If you’re a fan of broccoli and want to add a crispy and flavorful touch to this nutritious vegetable, look no further than Air Fryer Broccoli Parmesan. This easy-to-make recipe combines the goodness of broccoli with the irresistible flavors of Parmesan cheese, all cooked to perfection in the air fryer.

1. Air Fryer Broccoli Parmesan Recipe


  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).

Wash the broccoli florets and pat them dry with a kitchen towel.

In a mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, grated Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a flavorful coating.

Add the broccoli florets to the bowl and toss gently until they are evenly coated with the Parmesan mixture.

Place the coated broccoli florets in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are in a single layer without overcrowding.

Set the air fryer to cook at 400°F (200°C) for 10-12 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender and the edges are golden and crispy. Shake the basket or flip the broccoli halfway through the cooking time for even browning.

Carefully remove the air fryer basket and transfer the Air Fryer Broccoli Parmesan to a serving dish.

Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the broccoli for a tangy and refreshing touch.

Serve the Air Fryer Broccoli Parmesan immediately as a side dish or a healthy snack.
