Air Fryer Cauliflower Wings
- 1 head of cauliflower florets
- 1/2 cup milk we used soy milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour we used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free baking 1-to-1
- 2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1 cup frank's red hot sauce
- 2 Tbsp. butter we used earth balance buttery spread
- 1/4 cup molasses
- In a mixing bowl - combine all dry ingredients (flour, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, black pepper) then whisk in water and milk until batter has no lumps.
- Add fresh cauliflower florets to batter and mix well to evenly coat with batter. Remove florets one at a time and transfer to a separate dish so that excess batter can run off.
- Add battered florets to air fryer basket in a single layer. Also, try to keep them from touching (if possible) so that all sides can get direct heat.
- Cook at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a small pot (or in microwave) - bring hot sauce, butter, and molasses to low simmer, mixing well to combine. Then remove from heat.
- Once cauliflower is done cooking, transfer to a bowl. When ready to serve, cover with sauce, then toss to coat.
- Serve IMMEDIATELY with your dipping sauce of choice, or none at all. Enjoy!
