Spicy Cauliflower Bites
Make these bites as spicy or mild as you like. They're a delicious, meat-free option if you're making snacks for a game or appetizers for a casual dinner.
- 4 egg whites
- 1 cup (250 mL) panko breadcrumbs
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, melted
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
- Oil for spraying
- 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets (about 4 cups/1 L florets)
- 1 lime
- ¼ cup (60 mL) honey
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) ketchup
- 2–3 tsp (10–15 mL) Sriracha hot sauce
- Optional: Sesame seeds, lime wedges
Whisk the egg whites together in one Coating Tray until foamy.
Combine the panko, melted butter, and salt in a second coating tray.
Spray the cooking trays of the Deluxe Air Fryer with oil. Coat 2–3 cauliflower florets at a time in the egg whites, then coat in the panko mixture. Repeat with the remaining florets. Place the coated florets on the cooking trays, then place the trays on the top and middle racks of the air fryer.
Turn the wheel to select the ROAST setting; press the wheel to select. Turn the wheel to adjust the time to 18 minutes; press the wheel to start. Switch the trays halfway through cooking (you’ll hear beeps as a reminder).
Zest the lime with the Microplane® Zester to measure ½ tsp (2 mL). Combine the lime zest, honey, ketchup, and Sriracha in a small bowl.
Transfer the cauliflower to a platter. Drizzle the sauce over the cauliflower and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Garnish with lime wedges.
