Air fried spicy cauliflower florets will spice up your leftovers! This recipe is a simple and tasty way to use up the last of the cauliflower in your fridge. You can also use already roasted cauliflower in the recipe you will just need to cut down on the cooking time. 

Spicy cauliflower is a delicious snack or side dish for fall and winter gatherings. This vegetarian substitute for hot wings is super simple to make and serves about 4 or 5 people. Try this with blue cheese dip.

Here is how to make this recipe with purpose-fueled food that’s better for the prosperity of our planet and people.


2 cups cauliflower florets

¾ cup melted butter

2 tbsp. Catbird Hot Sauce (Add more for a spicier sauce)




In a large mixing bowl, coat the cauliflower florets in ¼ cup of butter. Season the cauliflower with salt and pepper. 

Air fry the cauliflower at 370 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are crispy. If the cauliflower has already cooked, you may need to cut the time in the air fryer down to 5 minutes.

In a microwave safe container, melt ½ cup of butter. Whisk the 2 tbsp. of hot sauce into the melted butter. Taste test and see if you need more hot sauce or if the spice level is good for you.

In a large mixing bowl, toss the cauliflower florets in the hot sauce until coated.
