TOTAL TIME :12minutes10minutes
3-4servings
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, chopped into 1 1/2" florets (approximately 6 cups)
  • 2-3 tablespoons Frank's Red Hot Sauce (start with 2 if heat-sensitive)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons nutritional yeast (more for a cheesier flavor; I use 3)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot starch
DIRECTIONS
AIR FRYER INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Set air fryer to 360 degrees F. Add all ingredients except cauliflower to a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine thoroughly. Add cauliflower and toss to coat evenly.
  2. Add half of your cauliflower to air fryer (no need to oil the basket). Cook for 12-14 minutes, shaking halfway, or until you reach desired consistency. Repeat with remaining cauliflower, except lower cook time to 9-10 minutes. Cauliflower will keep tightly sealed in the refrigerator up to 4 days. To reheat, add back to air fryer for 1-2 minutes, until warmed through and slightly crispy.
OVEN ROASTING INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper. Repeat directions for making sauce and tossing/coating cauliflower. Spread cauliflower evenly on baking sheet. Roast for 40 minutes, turning halfway through, or until cauliflower is tender with dark golden brown edges. Storage directions are the same as above. To reheat, add to a 400 degrees oven for 5 minutes, or until warmed through.

    Hi ‘ I saw them on your Instagram and I have been waiting for this recipe. I do not eat nutritional yeast, can I skip it ?

    • Laura Lea Goldberg

      Hi!!! Yes you can definitely leave it out. If you have either tahini or almond butter, I might suggest whisking a tablespoon of one into the marinade as well for some extra creaminess. Let me know how it goes! xx

        Can you substitute 1/4 C grated parmesan for the 3 TBSP nutritional yeast like you suggested for the minestrone soup?

        • Laura Lea Bryant

          I’m not totally sure as I haven’t tried it, but I think it would be delicious—just might stick to the grate a little bit

    I made it last weekend … and then ate the whole head of cauliflower myself over the course of 3 days. Couldn’t help myself! I’m going to try this sauce on chicken tenders next. In the air fryer, of course 🙂 Thanks for another awesome recipe!

    • Laura Lea Goldberg

      hahahaha SAME! I think chicken tenders is a fantastic idea. Let me know how it turns out if you do! xx

  • Adrienne Knopf

    I am so excited you posted this recipe. Thank you! I got all inspired from your pic last week of it on insta. soooo, we bought an air fryer & had been dabbling with the it a bit. let me also profess “airfryer, how do i love thee?!” amazing! i def will make your cauli recipe over the wknd paired with rosemary pecans (as the app from your cookbook), cozy minestrone (main), and the no bake PBJ squares (also from your cookbook). last night i made a fantastic meal all from your cookbook: honey curry salmon, roast broccoli w/ dippy sauce, and the fennel wild rice salad—ummm, wowzers! it turned out great! we have plenty of leftovers for tonight, yay! i also tried out chickpeas in the air fryer with some evoo, cumin, & garlic–pretty good :0) i sprinkled them on top of the wild rice side. if you developed a chickpea recipe for the air fryer that would be exciting, too! hee hee! ;0) sorry for the novel above, but just wanted to let you know how very much I am enjoying all your hard work on these recipes! they are phenomenal! THANK YOU!

    • Laura Lea Goldberg

      Adrienne! This message put such a smile on my face!!! I am thrilled that you are loving your air fryer as well! I need to try chickpeas–what a great idea! I am also so touched that you’ve enjoyed my website and cookbook recipes so much. That seriously makes my life. Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely note xoxo

      • Adrienne Knopf

        omg of course! expect more novels of gratitude to come ;0) happy friday <3

  • Diana Lewis

    I am in LOVE with this recipe. I don’t have an air fryer so I just used the oven and they were still delicious. The only thing I will change for next time is the quantity, for sure doubling the recipe. I ate the whole batch for dinner- it was a smaller head of cauliflower. Thanks for all you amazing recipes.

    • Laura Lea Bryant

      Yay!!! I’m so glad it was a hit in the oven! I think I’m going to double my next batch too. Thanks for sharing!

    • Melanie Gordon DiPaola

      Diana, can you please let us know the temp & time in the oven? Thanks!

      • Diana Lewis

        I cooked mine for 30 minutes at 415 degrees. I know my oven cooks hot so it may take the full 40 minutes in other ovens.

        • Laura Lea Bryant

          Thank you so much for letting us know, Diana!!!

  • HOLLY DIGIROLAMO

    I just made this recipe (I am munching on them now as I type!). They are very tasty, but I have a question, are they supposed to be crunchy? Because my are not as crunchy as I expected and I followed recipe exact. Thank you!

    • Laura Lea Bryant

      Hi love!!! I’m glad you enjoy the flavor! They are supposed to be crispy. Since every air fryer is a little different (and also taking elevation and weather into account), my guess is you just needed to “fry” them a few minutes longer!
