Cooking cauliflower florets in the air fryer gives the cauliflower a nice texture. They aren’t overly crispy, but not too soft either. The cauliflower is just right for slathering in buffalo sauce.

These air fryer buffalo cauliflower bites come together in about 15 minutes too!

You can buy a head of cauliflower and cut the florets yourself, or buy prepackaged florets. The produce section of the grocery store often has just the florets prepackaged and ready to go.

What are the benefits of cauliflower?

Cauliflower has gained a lot of popularity in recent years, mainly because of how versatile this cruciferous vegetable is. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C, fiber and B vitamins.

How to make this recipe

1 – Combine the buffalo sauce, melted butter, garlic powder and salt in a medium sized bowl. Add the cauliflower florets to the sauce and mix until they’re covered in sauce.

2 – Remove the basket from the air fryer and lightly spray with a nonstick cooking spray. Arrange florets in the basket, not crowding them.

3 – Cook florets at 400 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. You may need to cook in multiple batches depending on the size of the florets. 

I added blue cheese crumbles and shredded carrots to my bites. Feel free to eat them with dressing if you like, as well.

How do I store my leftover cauliflower bites?

These buffalo bites are best eaten right after cooking. However, you can place and leftovers in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat them in the oven or toaster oven to crisp them back up again. 

Can I freeze my leftover cauliflower bites?

Yes, place leftovers in a freezer safe, airtight container and freeze for about 10 months.

Our family has been taken advantage of the extra time during quarantine. We have been searching recipes to make and the kids help select and make them. Today we made your recipe! It was a hit! My kids love cooking in our air fryer because it is so easy! They loved cooking up some cauliflower for lunch today!
