Recipe: Two Ingredient Air Fryer Roasted Cauliflower

I'm pretty obsessed with my air fryer - I'm using it nearly every day! Last week I had roasted cauliflower as a topping at a salad bar and thought - I bet I can make this myself! 

So I came home and figured it out how to make roasted cauliflower in my air fryer! While I was looking at different seasonings - I realized I already had one ingredient in my fridge that had everything I needed. So now I created this delicious roasted cauliflower recipe with just two ingredients!!! Wahoo! 

 Can you air fryer cauliflower? 

Of course! I had done brussels sprouts - so I knew air fryer cauliflower had to be similar. Cauliflower is a little more hearty - so it doesn't get as crispy but it's also very absorbent so it took on the flavors like a champ! And air fryer cauliflower is much quicker than a traditional "oven roasted" cauliflower recipe! 

How to Air Fryer Cauliflower 

Okay - so what's the secret ingredient? Italian Dressing! I made my own last week so I had some in the fridge. Why Italian Dressing? It already has all garlic, red pepper flakes, oregano, basil, etc as well as olive oil & vinegar. It's perfect! You toss your cauliflower in Italian Dressing and you're done! Then into the air fryer it goes! I did add a little parmesan to the air fryer cauliflower. 

What to Serve with Air Fryer Cauliflower

You could add your roasted cauliflower parmesan on top of the Olive Garden Salad I just made - it's how I first had roasted cauliflower - was on a salad bar! It also goes great as a side for my Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken Thighs
