Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower

If you love buffalo wings then you’ve got to try buffalo cauliflower!

Yes…cauliflower! Hear me out…

I’m admittedly not a huge cauliflower fan, but when it’s prepared the right way, it can taste really good because it absorbs the flavors of your recipe. Think of cauliflower like a blank slate… you can MAKE it taste however you want!

Now, buffalo wings are keto friendly already. In fact, we have a keto buffalo wing recipe on this site! 

But if you’re looking for something a little less greasy, or perhaps a zesty side dish instead of a meat-based appetizer, then this is the recipe for you!

Air fryer recipes make things taste SOO much better but without all the unhealthiness of deep-frying! This buffalo cauliflower is a delicious way to enjoy cauliflower that will help you not miss hot wings at all. It doesn’t take much time or prep work to create this easy and delicious appetizer or main dish for you and your family.

This crispy low carb buffalo cauliflower can be on the table in 20 minutes or less!

Is Ranch Seasoning Keto?

If you’re picking up a store-bought ranch seasoning, you’ll probably see 0-1g carbs listed on the nutrition label. Overall, it’s a small amount that shouldn’t have much of an impact.

However, if you’re going for zero added sugars or staying away from as many processed foods as possible, you can also make your own homemade seasoning mix (like this ranch seasoning recipe). Then you’ll know exactly what’s inside! Simply swap out the sugar in the recipe with your preferred keto sweetener.

Can You Reheat Cauliflower in the Air Fryer?

One of the perks of an air fryer is that it is great at reheating foods so that they stay crispy, or crisping them up again!

If you find that you have leftover cauliflower, simply place in the air fryer at 350°F for 3-4 minutes, until warmed through and crispy on the outside.
