  1. Heat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) following manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Place broccoli florets in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave on high power for 3 minutes. Drain any accumulated liquid.
  3. 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.
