Quick & Easy Crunchy Air Fried Broccoli Crisps
I’ve heard about how amazing those little broccoli crisps at Trader Joe’s, but I refuse to buy something I can easily make…so voila. Here’s a quick and easy recipe for some Quick & Easy Crunchy Air Fried Broccoli Crisps. This recipe is actually super simple. and can be done in a normal oven, but will take much longer. Take a look at my Sour Cream and Onion Kale Chips Recipe for some tips on how to dehydrate veggies in the oven.
But Why Use an Air Fryer?
Air fryers are awesome. they are not fryers however. First of all, if you are wondering, an airfryer is basically a mini convection oven: A convection oven heats like a normal oven, but circulates air by way of a fan. this circulation of air keeps the humidity low, and in turn, will give you a crisper “fried” like exterior on certain items. Plus, it cooks your meals quickly, which I’m all about on weeknights.
I know if you’re keto, you may prefer to deep fry thinks, which is fine, but frying is definitely more caloric and I am trying to keep my calories as low as possible. Plus, if you’re also a Bariatric patient like me, you may be a little sensitive to fats.
The Air fryer, if used at a lower temp, can also replicate a dehydrator, and if used in between, give you a bit of the best of both worlds. Okay, enough about Air Fryers, hope you enjoy the recipe!
- 2 Crowns of Broccoli
- 2 tbsp of olive oil; enough to coat lightly
- I honestly used closer to 1 tbsp
- 2 Tbsp of Tajin
- Tajin is a blend of Mexican chilies & lime
Not super keen on lime? Try changing it up these seasonings. I promise you, they will all be delicious.
As for the Steps…..
Cut the broccoli florets into bite size pieces.
Coat in oil and then spices.
Set air fryer to 200 degrees for 30-35 mins.
Let cool for 20-30 mins (or don’t), and enjoy! Do you have any other seasoning
suggestions or requests? Let me know in the comments!
Just A Quick Note:
As with all dehydrated veggies, this isn’t going to yield a ton of crisps. You may want to double or even triple this recipe if you’d like to have a decent amount saved! Just a thought.
