Course Appetizer


  • 1 large head cauliflower chopped into small-to-medium sized florets (about 4 cups)
  • ¼ cup gluten free 1:1 flour
  • ¼ cup corn meal
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt plus more to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup unsweetened Greek Yogurt I love the Kite Hill dairy-free Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons Tobasco hot sauce


  • Wash and chop cauliflower into 1-inch florets. Try to make all the florets about the same size so that they cook evenly. Pat dry.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, water, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Add cauliflower florets and toss to coat.
  • Preheat air fryer if required. Add coated cauliflower to air fryer basket in a single layer and cook on 400°F until crisp, about 10 minutes, flipping halfway. You might need to cook in batches depending on how big your air fryer basket is.
  • Remove cauliflower florets from air fryer and add them back into the same large mixing bowl. Pour buffalo sauce over the cauliflower and toss to coat.
  • Add cauliflower back to air fryer in a single layer and cook for another 5-7 minutes, until crisp, checking at the 5 minute mark.
  • Serve cauliflower wings with dipping sauce of choice (I prefer ranch or blue cheese) with a side of celery and/or carrot sticks.
