If you have a bag of frozen veggies, olive oil spray, and a few simple spices, you can make an easy and delicious side dish that requires almost no time to prep!
I fell in love with the convenience of recipes like my roasted frozen cauliflower and roasted frozen broccoli for a quick dinner side.
It inspired me to try using the same method, but with my air fryer!
I was not disappointed, and the veggies cooked perfectly.
How to air fry frozen broccoli
Step 1: spray the air fryer basket with olive oil spray. This will help the broccoli florets not stick to the bottom.
Step 2: Place the frozen broccoli florets into the air fryer basket.
Can you cook from frozen in the air fryer?
Yes, and I always recommended doing this whenever cooking with frozen vegetables!
I have found that in order to get the best texture (no sogginess) for frozen vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower, it is important not to thaw them at all before cooking.
Step 3: Spray the broccoli with olive oil spray, then sprinkle on the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
Give it a good stir or shake to help mix the spices around.
Step 4: Air fry the broccoli at 400 degrees for 15-25 minutes, stirring at least once, until desired level of crispiness is achieved.
This recipe is delicious as is, or you could sprinkle on some parmesan cheese at the end.
Or this cheese sauce for broccoli would be amazing poured on top!
For vegans, this would be great sprinkled with a little nutritional yeast.
