This Low FODMAP Air Fryer Broccoli is an easy, healthy, and low FODMAP side dish ready in 15 minutes! Vegetarian, low carb, Keto, and gluten-free with easy Paleo, Whole30, vegan and dairy-free option.


Units Scale
  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen broccoli florets*
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese (optional - omit for Paleo/Whole30/Vegan)


  1. If your air fryer doesn’t have an internal preheat function, preheat air fryer at 400°F for 10 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together garlic-infused oil, salt, and pepper. Then, add broccoli, and toss with your hands or a spoon to coat in the oil mixture.
  3. Pour broccoli into preheated air fryer basket or into the rotisserie basket of an Instant Pot Vortex Plus 10-Quart Air Fryer.*
  4. Air fry for 6 minutes for fresh broccoli or 10 minutes for frozen broccoli, tossing the basket halfway through.* Broccoli should be tender and deliciously brown around the edges.
  5. Remove broccoli to a bowl. If using it, sprinkle shredded parmesan on top and cover with a plate for a few minutes to allow cheese to melt. Serve with your favorite main dishes.


  • Broccoli: According to Monash University's Low FODMAP Diet app, broccoli heads (or florets) contain the FODMAP fructose and are low FODMAP in servings of up to ¾ cup or 75 grams. I’ve set the serving size to ½ cup (57 grams), but if not eating anything else containing the FODMAP fructose, one can eat up to ¾ cup (75 grams) of this broccoli for a low FODMAP serving.
  • Instant Pot Vortex Plus 10-quart Air Fryer: if using this air fryer model, add broccoli to rotisserie basket, lock the lid in place, and add basket to air fryer (consult your manual for specific instructions). Hit the “Air Fry” button, adjust the temperature to 400° and the timer to 6 minutes for fresh broccoli or 10 minutes for frozen broccoli. Press the “Rotate” and “Start” buttons. Air fryer will enter preheat cycle and the basket will begin to rotate. Ignore the “Add Food” prompt and continue air frying without removing the basket until timer counts down to zero or the broccoli is tender and the edges are golden brown.
