Cut the broccoli crowns into bite-sized florets using a knife or kitchen scissors, then place them in a large bowl..
Drizzle the florets with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss thoroughly to ensure an even coating, as broccoli florets tend to absorb oil.
Arrange the broccoli in a single layer on the air fryer’s tray or basket. Cook at 400°F for 8 minutes. Toss the broccoli, then return to the fryer and cook for another 8 minutes.
After cooking, allow the broccoli to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
