Notes

  • All air fryers are unique.  Check your user manual for recommended temperature and time for cauliflower.
  • Watching your salt intake? Reduce the amount of salt as much as you desire. 
  • I like a roasty, toasty cauliflower.  However, if you like yours with more bite to it, then cut down the time.
  • Stir the cauliflower every 5 minutes while cooking to make sure it is evenly cooked and to check the doneness.
  • I use the cheap grated Parmesan in the green container. 
  • This air fryer cauliflower fits in a keto or low carb diet.
  • If you want to try an oven roasted cauliflower, here is my basic recipe
