Elevating Your Air-Fryer Game: The Ultimate Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe

Selecting Your Ingredients

To create this culinary masterpiece, start with a medium-sized cauliflower head, weighing approximately 2 pounds. Trim and cut it into 1 1/2-inch florets, ensuring each piece is bite-sized for even cooking and maximum flavor absorption.

The Flavor Enhancers

  • Cornstarch (1 tablespoon): This is your crispy coating catalyst.

  • Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 tablespoon): For a heart-healthy touch.

  • Garlic Powder (½ teaspoon): Adds a subtle, aromatic flavor.

  • Onion Powder (¼ teaspoon): Complements the garlic with its mild sweetness.

The Heat Element

  • Hot Sauce (1 tablespoon, such as Frank's RedHot): The star that brings the Buffalo zing.

  • Unsalted Butter (1 tablespoon, melted): Balances the heat with a smooth, rich texture.

The Cooking Process

Prepping and Cooking

Preheat your air fryer to 360°F. In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower with the cornstarch, olive oil, garlic powder, and onion powder until well coated. After a generous spray of cooking spray, arrange the cauliflower in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Cook for about 10 minutes until the edges are golden and crispy.

The Final Touch

Mix the melted butter and hot sauce in a bowl. Add the cooked cauliflower, ensuring each floret is well-coated. Return them to the air fryer for an additional 2 minutes. The final step? A sprinkle of salt and a generous topping of crumbled blue cheese for a creamy finish.
