Air Fryer Cauliflower

Air Fryer Cauliflower is something I did not expect to love because vegetables are not my favorite thing. However, this was the best tasting cauliflower I have ever eaten. I tossed it in a little olive oil and seasonings then I air fried it. We dipped it in my Homemade Sriracha Dip made with my homemade mayonnaise for a little kick. Either way you eat it, plain or dipped, you will love this one! I dedicate this recipe to all of the vegetarians that keep asking me for vegetarian recipes. I know my vegetable recipes are few and far between, so Merry Christmas…lol

Ingredients

Place the cut up cauliflower into a large bowl.

Add the olive oil and toss for about two minutes

so that the oil coats all of the cauliflower.

Add the salt, pepper and paprika.

Toss for another couple minutes so that

the seasonings evenly coat the cauliflower.

Place the prepared cauliflower into the air fryer basket

and fry at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Stir and fry another

5 minutes. Stir and fry one last time for 2-5 minutes depending

on the thickness of your pieces, mine took a total of 20 minutes.

While my cauliflower was frying I made my Homemade Mayonnaise. 

Then I used the mayonnaise to make my Homemade Sriracha Dip.

  1. Roasted cauliflower is one of my favourite veggie sides and this looks delicious! Love the spicy Mayo dip too. Kraft had a Scirachamayo dip that we like to go with French fries but your homemade dip looks good!

      • Oh that’s funny Diane. Sounds like it is a keeper recipe then. I thought you’d like cauliflower since you like broccoli florets. I don’t like the consistency of raw cauliflower. My mom made it and put cheese sauce over top of it, but we didn’t have it too much.

    • I think it would taste the same but it may take longer to cook is all. If you try them let me know how they turned out. I bought 2 more heads to make in the upcoming days as my 6 year old grandson insisted I make them again…..go figure!

    • I just made this again today for our lunch. My husband has always hated cauliflower until I made this! I really love using the air fryer. I use the Ninja Foodi because it’s not only an air fryer but also slow cooks, dehydrates, bakes, pressure cooks and more. Mine is an 8 qt. and it holds an entire chicken. I love it!
