Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 medium – larger heads of fresh broccoli (as per mine, one was bigger than the other); or about 56 cups of fresh broccoli; chopped
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon monkfruit (or any other sweetener of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dry thyme
  • ½¾ teaspoon Maggi (or Knorr of equal amount)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt 

 

For garnishing:


Instructions

  1. STEP ONE: Wash and cut; wash broccoli very well and dry with paper towels. Then cut in bite sizes. Don’t cut them too small or too big. I include the softer part of the stem and those that are holding the florets. I like how crunchy they become after cooking. 
  2. STEP TWO: Season; place the cut broccoli in a big bowl and add onion powder, salt, black pepper, Maggi, and dry thyme. Use a spatula to combine or toss. Then add the oil to the balsamic vinegar and add the monkfruit. Use a spoon to mix these three ingredients, and then pour on the broccoli. Combine everything with a spatula; taste the raw broccoli and adjust the flavors. Set aside to marinate for 5 – 10. 
  3. STEP THREE: Air fry, preheat the air fryer at 350. When it is time to add the broccoli, remove the air fryer basket and place a piece of parchment inside the air fryer basket, then pour the seasoned broccoli put the basket back into the air fry to cook. After the first 5 minutes, remove the parchment paper, stir or shake and then air fry for another 3 minutes! Make sure to keep your eyes on this so you are not left with charred broccoli. 
  4. STEP FOUR: Serve; air fryer broccoli are perfect sides during the holidays or Sunday dinners. They are equally fantastic for meal prep; I make plenty on Sunday for use throughout the week! You can serve them alongside a leg of lamb, turkey breast, air fryer chicken thighs, or air fried salmon fillets. You can also eat it by itself. I am guilty of almost finishing these babies before they get to the table. 

Notes

Try to cut the broccolis equal; this helps them to cook evenly. Similarly, cut them into bite-size pieces. I remember one time I had steamed broccoli in the restaurant, and it was big. I had to cut it in other to eat it. 

Be sure to properly dry broccoli with paper towels after washing. This way, the marinade is not diluted.

Do not overcook the broccoli unless you are fine with charred broccoli florets. 

Keep your eyes on them; if they are cooked to your doneness, remove them asap!
