Best Keto Veggie – Cauliflower

Cauliflower is one of the super star veggies of the Keto Diet. We love cauliflower recipes of almost any kind. I mean who doesn’t love cauliflower!

We like to sneak cauliflower into recipes like this Keto White Chicken Chili. It works as a great replacement for potatoes.

While on a low carb diet, you have to add vegetables to your diet because you might end up just eating high fat protein. It has happened to me before and I don’t want you to forget.

Cauliflower is an amazingly nutritious veggie that is said to have cancer-fighting properties. The reason cauliflower is a super star Keto Veggies is because it is an essential source of dietary fiber for digestive health. Did you know that high fiber diets are supposed to help lower cholesterol?

A serving of cauliflower contains 77% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C.

Cauliflower is also a good source of vitamin K, protein, 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.

How to Make Cauliflower in the Air Fryer?

Start by cutting up the cauliflower head into bite sized pieces. 

Cut Cauliflower

In a bowl or zip lock bag, shake or mix to coat the cauliflower with avocado oil, salt, and pepper. 

If you have spray olive oil, you can spray the cauliflower with olive oil in the air fryer. Then, sprinkle salt and pepper on top.

Salt and pepper cauliflower

Cook the cauliflower in the air fryer for 12 minutes at 400 degrees F. 

The more cauliflower you have in the air fryer, the longer you will need to cook the cauliflower. You can set the air fryer to 15 minute or even 20 minutes if necessary.

Shake the cauliflower florets in the air fryer basket halfway through cooking.
