Air Fryer broccolini is one of my favorite things to cook in the air fryer. It is so easy to make and the flavor is perfect as it is lightly seasoned with garlic, salt, and pepper with a little bit of lemon juice and olive oil.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • It is important to rinse your broccolini before cooking it. Once you rinse it, be sure you dry it well. If you don’t, it will steam in the air fryer rather than get tender and crispy. 
  • Be sure to not overcrowd the basket, you want to make sure the air can properly circulate. 
  • If you are making multiple batches, the second and third batches always cook faster than the first, check it a minute or two sooner than the recipe states.
