Lemon Parmesan Broccoli

Prep Time
10 minutes
Cook Time
1 hour 10 minutes


  • 1 to 1½ lbs fresh broccoli
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Cut the broccoli into florets that are all similar in size.
  2. Spread the broccoli and sliced garlic into the pan of the air fryer. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Set the air fryer for HIGH and the timer for 17 minutes.
  4. Close the lid and let cook until the timer goes off. The broccoli florets should be starting to brown.
  5. When done, open the lid and top the broccoli with lemon zest and parmesan cheese; use rubber-tipped tongs to gently toss the broccoli and coat it.
  6. Serve immediately.
