Making this recipe is the whole reason I bought my air fryer. Not joking here folks. Buffalo cauliflower is one of my favorite low carb appetizers. It’s perfect for watching games or if you are me, dinner on a Wednesday night.
Try this with some homemade Creamy Blue Cheese Dip
This recipe has a lot of depth in flavor. The apple cider vinegar adds tanginess, and no, it doesn’t taste like apples. Worcester sauce is amazing and I swear I smell it all the time, even when it’s not around. Is that weird? It’s okay if you say yes. I appreciate your honesty.
So using coconut oil in the winter time adds an extra step, even here in Arizona. I had to heat it up a little since it was solid. It’s unusual for me, at least here in the desert, since it’s typically in a liquid form when I pull it out of the cupboard. I’m using Tresomega Cold Pressed coconut oil which was provided to me by the brand. It’s really good. I may have licked the spoon.
This recipe is pretty straightforward. I forgot to add the salt the second time I made it, and didn’t even notice. Also, I found that if you let the cauliflower rest in the sauce for about 10 minutes before cooking it, it tastes better.

I may or may not have just eaten an entire head of cauliflower. I like it cooked a little longer for some crispiness.

"After 5 minutes, give the fryer basket a shake to toss the florets and then continue cooking."
For how much longer?
