In my case, I have roasted it till it feels quite crispy, however, you can make it crisper or less crispy according to your taste.
How to Make this Air Fryer Roasted Broccoli-
Take fresh dark green broccoli and make small florets. I have kept them all natural and only chopped the big ones. Then, mix a little bit of sesame oil, Chinese wine, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes, and drizzle it over the broccoli florets. Keep it marinated like this for 5 minutes.
Preheat the air fryer to 380 F. Then, place all the broccoli florets on the top wire rack of the air fryer. Air fry them at 380 for 8-10 minutes or till they are crispy as per your liking. Check after 5 minutes because your time can increase or decrease depending on your air fryer and broccoli florets.
