- Cauliflower: fresh cauliflower works best. Cut into even bite sized pieces.
- Flour: whole wheat or regular flour to coat so they come out nice and crispy.
- Water: to mix with the flour and create a crispy batter.
- Seasoning: Garlic powder, paprika, kosher salt & pepper
- Butter: can be replaced with oil, but it's just not the same.
- Buffalo Sauce: we like Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce, but you can use any kind.
How To Make Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
Cut the cauliflower it into bite-sized pieces. Mix together flour, seasoning, and water. Pour mixture over the cauliflower and toss until coated.
Spread onto a baking sheet or air fryer tray. Cook at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.
In a small bowl, mix together melted butter and hot sauce.
Flip the cauliflower and baste with buffalo sauce. Cook another 15 minutes.
Pro-tip: if air-frying, bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, flip, baste, and cook another 10 minutes or until cauliflower is crispy.
