Do your kids struggle with eating broccoli?  If so, this might be a great recipe to add to your repertoire of side dishes for your family!

Why air Fryer broccoli is great

Getting kids to eat broccoli that’s not drowned in a cheese sauce never worked for me until my husband brought home an Instant Pot Air Fryer. I also love food that I can quickly and easily make at home that tastes better than something you get in a restaurant. With Air Fryer Broccoli it feels good to know that I am feeding my family healthy food that they’ll actually eat because it tastes amazing!

Honestly, this air fryer broccoli is pretty addictive if you want to know the truth. The first time I made it I almost ate the the entire batch myself, and my husband had seconds!
