How to Make Keto Air Fried Crispy Broccoli
- Try to use fresh broccoli, it tastes so much better and will be crispier! Sure you can use frozen broccoli, but you have to let it thaw and them drain all the water out of it. All the thawed frozen broccoli won’t be as as crispy because of all the moisture.
- Make sure your broccoli cuts are all even sized for even cooking.
- We love using crushed pork rinds. You can buy them already pre-ground or grind pork rinds yourself in the food processor.
- You an also use almond flour or coconut flour instead of the crushed pork rinds. But those flours aren’t as crunchy as pork rinds. And if you’re using those low carb flours, you have to spray the outside completely so the flour air fried crisp. If you leave any dry flour spots, they will be hard and not crispy.
