  • Air Fryer



  • In a mixing bowl, combine oregano, basil, parsley and salt. Mix it with a spoon.
  • Toss in panko crumbs and mix nicely.
  • Fold in broccoli florets to the panko mixture and mix well so that each floret is well coated with the panko mixture. Grease it with cooking spray and toss again.
  • Place a parchment paper in the air fryer basket and spoon out the broccoli along with panko in the basket. Spread it with a spoon and place all the florets in a single layer. Grease it again with cooking spray for crispier texture.
  • Attach the basket to the air fryer and tur it on at 400 degree for 7 minutes. At 5 minutes, pause and flip the broccoli florets with the help of tongs. Attach it again to the air fryer and start air frying for 2 more minutes.
  • Turn it off and detach the basket. With the help of tongs take out cooked broccoli florets in the serving plate and discard the leftover panko crumbs in the air fryer basket.
  • Sprinkle some garlic powder and serve immediately.


  • I used fresh broccoli florets here and that works well. 
  • You may also sprinkle vegan parmesan cheese along with garlic powder over broccoli before serving. 
  • For darker color and crisper you may let it air fry for 10 minutes but make sure to flip at 5 minutes. 
  • Cooking spray is optional but it brings out a nice color and texture. 
  • This recipe serves 2 people so if you want to double the recipe then I would recommend air frying in two batches.
