Directions

  • Heat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) following manufacturer's instructions.

  • Place broccoli florets in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave on high power for 3 minutes. Drain any accumulated liquid.

  • Add cauliflower, olive oil, garlic powder, sea salt, paprika, and black pepper to the bowl with the broccoli. Mix well to combine. Pour mixture into the air fryer basket. Cook for 12 minutes, tossing vegetables halfway through cooking time for even browning.

Cook's Note:

The broccoli is the only thing that needs a jumpstart in the cooking process. The cauliflower does just fine without it.

Loved it! I knew that this would go over well at our house because broccoli is hubs favourite veggie and cauliflower is one of mine and we both love paprika. The only change that I made was to add 1 tbs of water to the broccoli when microwaving probably didn't need it but I was nervous about putting the broccoli in the m/o. without any liquid. Thanks for sharing Soup Loving Nicole!

This recipe works perfectly as written. You get that roasted flavor in exactly 12 minutes without heating up the house. Remove the basket from the air fryer immediately. I left one batch in there and turned off the air fryer and the broccoli burned.

Delicious! I added three shakes of powdered habanero, which I think I over did. I also added the broccoli during the last half of the cook time and did not bother microwaving it. I can eat this all day guilt-free! Great recipe, Nikki!

Tasty! My non-vegetable-eating son loves roasted or pan fried broccoli, and this is an easier and less messy way to achieve same results! I tossed with olive oil and garlic salt after microwaving and before air frying, and they were gone before reaching the table. I think because I broke them into smaller sized florets they almost burned, so next time will check 2 min earlier. Will make again (next will try Italian seasoning, garlic powder and when done - a sprinkle of parmesean).
