Step 1. If using pork rinds, add them to a food processor or high-powered blender and pulse until they reach the consistency of panko bread crumbs. Step 2. In a large bowl, mix together cauliflower florets and hot sauce, until all pieces are completely coated with sauce.
Step 3. Set up a station with 4 bowls: the bowl of cauliflower florets, a bowl of flour or oat fiber, the beaten eggs, and the bread crumbs or pork rinds. Step 4. Roll the florets in flour, dip them in the eggs and then roll them in bread crumbs. It's easiest to hold the cauliflower pieces by their stem and just bread the tops.
Step 5. You'll need to air fry them in batches. Spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Use an oil mister rather than an aerosol cooking spray because it can ruin the nonstick surface of your air fryer. Add the florets in a single layer. Step 6. Whisk together all ingredients for ranch dressing and serve with the Air Fryer Cauliflower Wings along with some celery and carrot sticks.
And I sincerely doubt that your friends and family will miss the chicken wings at all, once they get a taste of these Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. But this recipe can be eaten at any time of day, for any occasion.
