I was making General Tso chicken and rice and figured this Air Fryer Ginger Garlic Broccoli would be an excellent side dish.
No one likes mushy broccoli, at least I’m fairly certain of that.
Well, when you air fry broccoli it get crispy and edges even get slightly charred and crunchy (my favorite part).
Honestly it was kind of a last minute side that I threw together, and it kinda made the whole dish complete.
Gotta love last minute ideas that turn out fabulous 🙂
Here is how to make Air Fryer Ginger Garlic Broccoli
Cut a pound of broccoli into florets and toss them with olive oil, soy sauce, ginger paste, and garlic paste.
Next let it sit for about 5 minutes and toss it a few more times.
This will give the broccoli time to soak up all the yummy flavors.
Then put the broccoli into the air fryer basket and set it to 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
The cook time depends on how you like your broccoli cooked.
Just keep checking during the last few minutes.
You can see the crisp, charred edges and that’s exactly how I like my Air Fryer Ginger Garlic Broccoli.
Oddly enough my kids LOVE broccoli and were already asking for seconds before they even finished their first helping 🙂
We had this with General Tso Chicken and rice, it was a great combo!
This would be a great side for Crunchy Baked Tilapia with Sriracha and Peanut Sauce too!
