Before we get into the Air-Fried Cauliflower Buffalo Wings recipe, lemme tell you something about cauliflower.

  • Cauliflower is available in 3 different hues. Orange, green, purple, and white are the hues.
  • To grow cauliflower, you’ll need mild weather where you live. Although cauliflower is a winter crop, it still needs sunlight and cannot be kept too cold.
  • The stem and leaves are edible. Simply peel the stem, slice it up, and steam the florets with it. Salads with leaves are delicious.
  • It has a low-calorie count yet a good nutritional value.
  • I believe we’re all aware that cauliflower is a terrific rice substitute and that it can even be used as a pizza crust.


What Should You Serve

The typical accompaniment for air-fried buffalo cauliflower wings is blue cheese dressing, but I like my homemade ranch dressing. It’s the perfect complement to spicy, saucy cauliflower wings, made with fresh chopped parsley, vegan mayo, garlic powder, and dried dill.

To serve, arrange the wings with carrots, celery sticks, Creamy Vegan Ranch Dressing, or Vegan Ranch Dressing.

These Air-Fried Cauliflower Buffalo Wings are a must-try.
