Air Fried Spicy Cauliflower Stir-Fry is fast and simple. It is so gratifying to have a new side dish for your family to enjoy. Delicious flavors get you lots of compliments.
Finally! I got an air fryer and I’m diving into creating recipes that are delicious, fast and lower in fats and oils. Now don’t fret if you don’t have an Air Fryer yet. You can still make Air Fried Spicy Cauliflower Stir-Fry in a skillet but you would have to add a bit more oil.
I’ll have to chalk this appliance score up to my husband. Again! All I said was that ‘I’d really like to get an Air-Fryer. It’s the new big thing!” So he asked about it and I said I really wasn’t sure but it’s like frying food but with very little oil.
So he started searching amazon. Not only did I get an air fryer but he bought one that has a stirrer paddle in it. Now I don’t even have to shake the bowl half way through. I mean that’s not a hard thing to do but that’s what I got.
I guess he really wanted me to make some air fried dishes. It also has a pan with no holes so I don’t need to buy thee extra insert. You should see how beautiful and crispy my bean balls and lentil balls are.
Sometimes, when a new recipe is created the first round isn’t exactly what you are looking for. In fact, sometimes it takes two or three tries to get it just right. Well, this Air Fried Spicy Cauliflower Stir-Fry came out a winner and surpassed all my expectations right out of the gate. You’ll have huge success too.
Yes, I’m in love! There is just some chopping, measuring and a little bit of shaking. If even that. Follow the directions below and you’ll love it too. I’ll add some notes at the very end if you would like to make Spicy Cauliflower Stir-Fry in a skillet or wok.
Air Fried Spicy Cauliflower Stir-Fry
Air Fried Spicy Cauliflower Stir-Fry is fast and simple.
- 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 3/4 cup onion white, thinly sliced
- 5 cloves garlic finely sliced
- 1 1/2 tablespoons tamari or gluten free tamari
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha or other favorite hot sauce
- 2 scallions for garnish
Place cauliflower in the air fryer. If your air fryer is one that has holes in the bottom you'll need to use an air fryer insert.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon oil over the top. You can spray a little bit of oil from a can to cut back on even more oil.
Set the temp to 350 degrees. Cook 10 minutes.
Open the air fryer, grab the pot by the handle, remove and shake and slide back in the compartment.
Add the sliced onion, stir and cook 10 more minutes.
Add garlic, stir and cook 5 more minutes.
Mix soy sauce, rice vinegar, coconut sugar, Sriracha, salt & pepper together in a small bowl.
Add the mixture to cauliflower and stir. Cook 5 more minutes. The insert keeps all of the juices inside.
To serve sprinkle sliced scallions over the top for garnish.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN AIR FRYER:
Add 2 tablespoons oil to skillet. Add cauliflower and cook (stirring) 10 minutes, add onion and cook 10 more minutes. Add garlic and cook 5 more minutes.
Mix soy sauce, rice vinegar, coconut sugar, Sriracha, salt & pepper together in a small bowl. Add to the skillet and cook and stir for 5 more minutes.
Serve hot with scallions as garnish.
In the comments Katie asked which air-fryer I got. I thought I’d post it up here so others could find it easier – just in case. It is the T-fal ActiFry. It’s pricey but really a nice one.
