  • 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
  • ¾ cup onion white, thinly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic finely sliced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons tamari or gluten free tamari
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • ½ 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.
  • 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.
