Pungent Asian Cauliflower in the Air Fryer

I didn’t start out as one of “those” families that eats cauliflower for every meal instead of rice and noodles, but here we are. I’m not sorry, it’s amazingly delicious if done right!

We love this recipe as a side, a stand alone snack, or a base for some of our favorite Asian meals. It’s quick and easy (my two favorite words for any and all recipes that I make), and both of my kids scarf it down.


  • 1 Head of Cauliflower
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
    • 1Tbsp Granulated Garlic
    • 1Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
    • 1Tbsp Soy Sauce
    • 1Tbsp Sriracha
    • 1Tbsp Sesame Oil


  1. Cut the cauliflower into bite sized pieces
  2. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees for 5 minutes
  3. Spray the hot air fryer basket with olive oil, add cauliflower to the basket, and spray the cauliflower with olive oil
  4. Air fry at 400 degrees for 15 minutes **IMPORTANT** shake WELL every 5 minutes, check often toward the end to make sure nothing is burning, turn the temperature down to 350°F for the remaining time if the cauliflower starts to burn
  5. Mix sauce ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  6. Once the cauliflower is finished, add it to the sauce in the mixing bowl
  7. Carefully turn the cauliflower over and over in the sauce to distribute the sauce evenly
  8. Serve it up
