Air fryer buffalo cauliflower wings
Enjoy buffalo-style cauliflower as a veggie main or spicy side dish to accompany your favourite dishes. Full of flavour, we use an air fryer to cook them
- Serves: 4 persons
- 1tbsp sweet smoked paprika
- 1tbsp ground cumin
- ½tbsp garlic granules
- 50g plain flour
- 200g buttermilk (195ml)
- 1medium cauliflower (around 750g), leaves removed and cut into florets
- 100g hot sauce
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 1tbsp honey or maple syrup
Step 1Combine the paprika, cumin, garlic granules, flour, buttermilk and a good pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper in a bowl and mix well to make a smooth batter. Add the cauliflower florets and mix to coat the cauliflower.
Step 2Put the cauliflower florets in the air fryer basket in a single layer, shaking off any excess batter as you do so. You may need to cook in batches depending on the size of the basket. Cook on 200C for 18-20 mins, turning half way through, until browned on the edges.
Step 3Meanwhile, combine the hot sauce, olive oil and honey or maple syrup, if using, in a large bowl. Add the cooked cauliflower and set aside while you cook your next batch, if necessary. Gently mix all of the cooked cauliflower and hot sauce to coat. Finally, return all of the cauliflower to your air fryer basket and cook for 6-9 mins until hot and well cooked through.
