Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat air fryer to 360°F for 5 minutes. Toss cauliflower with cornstarch, oil, garlic powder and onion powder in a large bowl until well coated. Generously coat with cooking spray and toss again. Working in batches if necessary, arrange the cauliflower in a single layer in the air-fryer basket. Cook until the edges are golden and crispy, about 10 minutes.

  • Whisk melted butter and hot sauce in a large bowl. Add all of the cooked cauliflower to the bowl and toss to coat. Return the cauliflower to the air fryer and cook for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and top with blue cheese.
