  • 6 cups broccoli cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • Zest and juice of small lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Optional red pepper flakes


  • Wash, cut and thoroughly dry your broccoli florets. Add them to a mixing bowl, then pour the olive oil, garlic salt and pepper over the top.
  • Mix to coat each piece, then place them on your air fryer racks or basket, spaced apart to allow air to circulate.
  • Turn your air fryer to 375°F and cook for 9-11 minutes or until slightly browned, then return the broccoli to the mixing bowl.
  • While the broccoli is cooking, heat a skillet to medium and melt the butter.
  • Sauté the garlic for about 20 seconds, then remove from the heat and add in the lemon juice and zest.
  • Pour the butter mixture over the broccoli, toss and serve with slices of lemon and a pinch of the (optional) red pepper flakes. Store leftovers in an airtight container for a few days or freeze.
