Have you had roast cauliflower? It’s one of those things that sounds so annoyingly healthy but probably not so delicious until you taste it and then think OH MY GAWD.
This is good for me? Because it’s I-can’t-stop-eating-it Doritoes good. Go ahead. Pig out. Eat a whole head of Cauliflower. No guilt needed.
I’ve tried roasting cauliflower in a hot oven many times, with assorted toppings and luck. The most annoying part is chopping and tossing it. So when I came up with the idea of roasting a whole head of it in the airfryer, I got excited! The idea was to roast at a lower temp to cook thru, followed by a higher temp to crisp the oustide and get it all nice and crusty.
Thanks to Philips Air Fryer for sending me a unit to review and try out some new summer supper recipes with. All opinions are my own.
To serve, I simply plated it and cut up in wedges. There were no leftovers. Not one scrap. Even my kids gobbled this up.
To make a whole head of roast cauliflower in a Philips Air Fryer:
- Use a small head of cauliflower and trim/clean the base to fit easily in the Air Fryer basket.
- Mix 1/3 c whole or lowfat greek yogurt or leben cheese (a little richer but SO good for this) and 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1 tbs honey, salt and pepper to taste. If you like things spicy, toss in some cayenne.
- Set the cauliflower into a bowl or onto a plate and then use your hands to coat the cauliflower with this mixture, massaging into the interstices and let sit for a half hour or so (up to an hour) on the counter at room temp to soak in the flavors.
- Preheat your air fryer.
- Wipe off the cauliflower, so it is not so wet and drippy with the coating, but don’t feel like you have to clean it all off. Place the cauliflower into the fryer basket and cook on 360 for 10-12 minutes until it is starting to soften and brown slightly. Turn up heat to 390 and cook for 3 minute intervals until the cauliflower is soft on the inside, brown and crispy on the outside. Enjoy!
Next up, we’ll be roasting chickpeas in our Air Fryer.
