This Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower is a low carb delicious side dish or Keto appetizer that is a crowd favorite.

While it is a crowd favorite during game season, it is something that I make every time that I have guests over. I love that it is healthy and delicious at the same time.

They can be gluten-free, vegan, or vegetarian. My favorite way to eat them is like a chicken wing dipped in ranch or blue cheese.

This buffalo wings cauliflower dish works perfectly in a buffet setting as a yummy side dish or you can make it as the main dish for vegans or vegetarians.

You can also make Keto Spinach Balls in Air Fryer or Oven for your buffet.

Cauliflower – Keto Veggie!

Cauliflower is an amazingly nutritious veggie and ideal for the Keto Diet.  This low carb buffalo cauliflower wings recipe helps me forget I am eating cauliflower.

Here are some cauliflower recipes that are perfect for being on Keto Low Carb KETO Cauliflower Rice Recipe and LOW CARB Air Fryer Cauliflower Recipe.

Cauliflower has amazing cancer-fighting properties that should make it a staple in all diets.

It contains something called sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby slowing tumor growth.

Also, cauliflower is an essential source of dietary fiber for digestive health. Did you know that high fiber diets are supposed to help lower cholesterol?

Most of us need more nutrients in our body to function better. Eating cauliflower regularly is a simple way to get these much-needed nutrients into your body.

For instance, one serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C.

It’s also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese. ***

*** I am not a doctor and cannot say that any of these health benefits are real. I have done some research and it seems that these are the health benefits, but I cannot be certain.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

Frank’s Red Hot

One of my favorite sauces on the Keto Diet is Frank’s Red Hot because it adds flavor without adding carbs or calories.

It is pretty much magic in my book and I love putting it on my Sausage KETO Breakfast Burrito Recipe in the morning and pretty much all my Keto Breakfast foods to add flavor and something different to keep my keto foods well spiced.

This Epic KETO Buffalo Chicken Dip is always a crowd favorite and makes for a great dip or appetizer for gatherings where you want a keto friendly option as part of your spread.

Additional Ingredient Ideas

You can add other ingredients to this simple air fry recipe. If you want to add a garlicy flavor to the sauce, you can add garlic powder.

Next, arrange the cauliflower in a single layer at the bottom of the air fryer basket so that the florets do not overlap.

While cauliflower is cooking, melt the butter and the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce in a skillet.

Add in cooked cauliflower into the skillet to coat the cauliflower, and saute for 1 minute stirring and flipping frequently.
