HOW TO MAKE BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER BITES IN THE AIR FRYER
Start with cutting up a head of cauliflower into florets and put those in a large mixing bowl <— CLICK to get my FAVORITE mixing bowls – I use them for everything!
Next, melt some butter and mix in a good dose of hot sauce into it. I use Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. It’s DA best.
Pour the hot sauce mixture over the cauliflower florets and mix them around. I use my hands for this part, but I make sure to wash my hands three times after mixing because it would freakin’ HURT if I touched my eyes without washing off the hot sauce, first. Been there, done that… still remember it. 

Then, you’ll want to whisk together a bit of almond flour with seasoning salt, garlic powder, and dried parsley.
Sprinkle that over the cauliflower florets – use a handful of almond flour mix at a time and just gently stir them around so that all florets are coated.
Air Fry HALF of the cauliflower bites at 350˚F (no need to preheat) for about 15 minutes. Stop and shake a couple of times during the cooking process. If you want them crispier, try cooking for 2 to 3 minutes longer.
Remove cauliflower from the air fryer and keep covered while you cook the second batch.
Serve immediately with a side of celery sticks and bleu cheese dressing. AND more hot sauce.


TIPS FOR AIR FRYER BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER BITES
DO NOT crowd the air fryer pan. If you crowd it, the cauliflower bites will turn out soggy. This is why you want to cook the cauliflower in two batches. You need to have enough air flow to go all around each piece.
If you’re not satisfied with the crunch, put cauliflower bites under the broiler for 2 minutes, then serve. 

HOW TO MAKE IN THE OVEN
Place prepared cauliflower florets on a foil lined pan and bake for 15 minutes at 450˚F. Gently stir cauliflower halfway through cooking.
HOW TO MAKE AHEAD
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are also great to make ahead. Prepare each element beforehand – cut up the cauliflower, make the sauce, prepare the breading – and keep them in separate containers until ready to use. You WILL need to heat up the hot sauce and give it a good stir before using.
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVERS
While Cauliflower Bites taste best when served immediately, you can still refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Now, let’s stuff our faces with cauliflower that pretends it’s chicken, and really, really LOVE IT! I think you will. This hot mess doesn’t even taste like cauliflower.

For real, though – in this recipe, wings or cauliflower, they just serve as the gateway, or the vessel, into Buffalo sauce.
