Air Fryer Cauliflower (quick side dish)

The air fryer strikes again for this easy-to-make recipe for air fryer cauliflower! 

Seasoned, crispy, fried cauliflower florets are a low-carb and Keto but to be honest, everyone in my family loves this!

Cauliflower is a superfood and it roasts perfectly in the air fryer! Cook up a batch as a side dish, or as a guilt-free snack!

Easy Air-Fried Cauliflower

Air fried cauliflower is one of our favorite recipes it requires little prep and minimal seasoning and cooks in about 15 minutes.

The caramelization from the air fryer makes this dish even more flavorful.

Eat this as a side dish or use in place of steamed cauliflower in dishes like mashed cauliflower, to add to casseroles or even in roasted cauliflower soup.

Ingredients/Variations

CAULIFLOWER – I prefer to use fresh cauliflower in the air fryer but if you only have frozen, use that!

Frozen cauliflower does not need to be thawed first. Simply brush with olive oil (or spray with cooking spray).

SEASONINGS We use garlic powder, salt & pepper, and parmesan in this recipe. Switch it up by trying different seasonings. Or coat the cauliflower florets with buffalo sauce and make “wings.”

How to Cook Cauliflower in the Air Fryer

It’s super easy and fast to cook up some tasty cauliflower!

  1. Prepare the cauliflower and toss with a bit of oil and seasonings (per recipe below).
  2. Place cauliflower pieces in the air fryer basket and fry until tender.
  3. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and cook another few minutes until the cheese is melted and crispy.

For crispier cauliflower, cook in small batches in a single layer. Place all cauliflower in the air fryer together for 2 minutes before serving to heat.

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • cup parmesan cheese finely shredded

Instructions

  • Cut cauliflower into florets. Wash and drain very well.
  • Combine olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Toss with cauliflower.
  • Preheat air fryer to 390°F.
  • Place cauliflower in the air fryer basket and cook 12 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan and cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until florets reach desired doneness.

Notes

If the cauliflower is wet (after washing) it will steam instead of roast so be sure to drain very well. If possible, I try to wash the cauliflower the day before roasting.

For crispier cauliflower, cook in small batches in a single layer. Place all cauliflower in the air fryer together for 2 minutes before serving to heat.

To reheat, air fry 3-4 minutes or until heated through.
