Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower

My brother’s fiancee introduced us to Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower over the Thanksgiving holiday and I felt compelled to share. This delicious and exceptionally easy recipe is a perfect side dish or appetizer. As I mentioned before, my husband and I have been playing around with the Air Fryer and I’d like to report that we haven’t been disappointed! It is now a staple of our kitchen and probably my most used appliance. It’s easy to clean, easy to figure out (you choose your temperature, enter the time and press go) and super fast for a last minute cooker such as myself. Christmas is right around the corner, and I can’t think of a better gift idea. I have to admit, I’m not the biggest cauliflower fan, but when it’s prepared in a tangy buffalo sauce and comes out perfectly crispy I’ll snack on it all day.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup baking flour (gluten free, if need be)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large head cauliflower cut into 1 1/2 inch florets (approximately 6 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup pepper sauce (I used Franks RedHot)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Add salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients, except for the cauliflower, together in a bowl. Whisk if necessary. Batter should be smooth and somewhat runny.
  2. Cover the cauliflower in sauce
  3. Coat air fryer with avocado or olive oil
  4. Add cauliflower to air fryer. Set temperature to 370 degrees and cook for 14-16 minutes
  5. Remove and let cool. Cauliflower should be crispy
  6. For reheating – add cauliflower back to air fryer for 1-2 minutes

And there you have it! Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower is so tasty and healthier than those buffalo wings you’ve been craving. I paired mine with a blue cheese dip for more flavor. Enjoy!
