Instructions

How to make air fryer frozen broccoli:

  • Cut the frozen broccoli into smaller pieces if some of the pieces are large. (I did not need to do this.) Lightly mist your air fryer baking racks with the cooking spray.
  • Drizzle the frozen broccoli with the oil and sprinkle with the seasoning. Stir to distribute it well.
  • Spread the broccoli in a single layer on the racks. I used both racks that came with the oven. You may need to cook the broccoli in batches if you have a small air fryer.
  • Make sure the drip tray is in place in your air fryer oven. Put the racks in the oven and roast at 400°F for 12 minutes.
  • Switch the position of the trays in the oven. Bake an additional 8 minutes. That's it!

How to make air fryer frozen cauliflower:

  • Cut the frozen cauliflower into smaller pieces if some of the pieces are large. (I did not need to do this.) Lightly mist your air fryer baking racks with the cooking spray.
  • Drizzle the frozen cauliflower with the oil and sprinkle with the seasoning. Stir to distribute it well.
  • Spread the cauliflower in a single layer on the racks. I used both racks that came with the oven. You may need to cook the cauliflower in batches if you have a small air fryer.
  • Make sure the drip tray is in place in your air fryer oven. Put the racks in the oven and roast at 400°F for 12 minutes.
  • Switch the position of the trays in the oven. Bake an additional 8 minutes.

How to make air fryer frozen Brussels sprouts:

  • Lightly mist your air fryer baking racks with the cooking spray.
  • Drizzle the frozen Brussels sprouts with the oil and sprinkle with the seasoning. Stir to distribute it well.
  • Spread the Brussels sprouts in a single layer on the racks. I used both racks that came with the oven. You may need to cook the Brussels sprouts in batches if you have a small air fryer.
  • Make sure the drip tray is in place in your air fryer oven. Put the racks in the oven and roast at 400°F for 10 minutes.
  • Switch the position of the trays in the oven. Bake an additional 8 minutes.

How to make air fryer frozen spinach:

  • Lightly mist your air fryer baking racks with the cooking spray.
  • Drizzle the frozen spinach with the oil and sprinkle with the seasoning. Stir to distribute it well.
  • Spread the spinach on the air fryer racks. I used both racks that came with the oven. Leave the spinach in frozen clumps for results that are both tender and crispy. Break up the frozen clumps for a spinach side dish that is more crispy.
  • Make sure the drip tray is in place in your air fryer oven. Put the racks in the oven and roast at 400°F for 10 minutes.
  • Flip and stir the spinach pieces. Switch the position of the trays in the oven. Bake an additional 10 minutes.

How to make air fryer frozen okra:

  • Lightly mist your air fryer baking racks with the cooking spray.
  • Drizzle the frozen okra with the oil and sprinkle with the seasoning. Stir to distribute it well.
  • Spread the okra in a single layer on the racks. I used both racks that came with the oven. You may need to cook the okra in batches if you have a small air fryer.
  • Make sure the drip tray is in place in your air fryer oven. Put the racks in the oven and roast at 400°F for 12 minutes.
  • Switch the position of the trays in the oven. Bake an additional 8 minutes.

How to make air fryer frozen butternut squash:

  • Lightly mist your air fryer baking racks with the cooking spray.
  • Drizzle the frozen winter squash with the oil and sprinkle with the seasoning. Stir to distribute it well.
  • Spread the butternut squash in a single layer on the air fryer racks. I was able to fit it all on a single rack.
  • Make sure the drip tray is in place in your air fryer oven. Put the rack in the top rack position in the oven and roast at 400°F for 20 minutes, stirring and flipping the squash after 12 minutes.

Notes


This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). I'm filing this recipe in the "dinner" section since air fryer cooked veggies are typically a dinner add-on. Non-starchy veggies tend to be a low-calorie addition to meals, as long as you limit high-calorie sauces and oils. Consider adding a protein and 1-2 more veggies to your side dish to make it a full meal.
The last time I served air fried frozen broccoli, I accompanied it with oven-roasted potatoes and cauliflower, plus a really delicious pork chop! I went with larger portions of the pork chop and potatoes for a higher energy meal.
Another time, I enjoyed tasty air fryer broccoli with a smaller portion of air-fried teriyaki tofu, served over quinoa. This ended up being a lighter option, better for those who have a weight loss goal. No matter your dietary preferences and energy needs, this air fryer roasted vegetables recipe is likely to be a good fit!
