I get downright giddy when I discover a new small kitchen appliance that can revolutionize my time in the kitchen. Which is why I was super excited by the opportunity to try out the Philips AirFryer to create my own airfryer recipe.

Airfryer Recipe – Sriracha Cauliflower Appetizer Bites
You only need three ingredients for this recipe. And, of course, a Philips Viva AirFryer. It is perfect for game day because it has a spicy kick and while it reminds you of eating a buffalo wing, it’s a much healthier version. If you want to make more than one batch of these, I recommend that you chop the cauliflower ahead of time and use a plastic zipper bag to coat the pieces.
After you check out the recipe, make sure you visit the Philips Game Day Pinterest Board for more delicious game day inspiration.
Start with a small head of cauliflower.
Remove the leaves and as much of the stalk as you can.
Then cut the florets off and cut each one into bit sized pieces.
Prepare the mayonnaise and the the sriracha sauce, and combine in a small bowl. Depending upon the size of your cauliflower, you may need to double the sauce, but start with these amounts, and double as necessary.
Pour the sriracha mayo mixture into a small bowl with high sides to make it easy to dunk the cauliflower into the sauce for full coverage.
Shake as much of the excess sauce off and set each piece into the fryer basket. The pieces can touch, but you will have better results if they aren’t stacked on top of each other.
Set the temperature gauge to 350 degrees and fry for 15 minutes.
Make sure you remove the basket and shake it frequently to ensure full air coverage of the pieces.
Remove the pieces and place on parchment paper to cool.
Repeat frying as necessary until you have used all of the pieces of the cauliflower.
Serve as-is or with some extra sriracha mayo on the side.
Airfryer Recipe - Sriracha Cauliflower Appetizer Bites
- 1 small or medium head of cauliflower
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/8 cup sriracha sauce
- Chop the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Not too small though.
- Mix the mayo and the sriracha together and pour it into a small bowl with tall sides or even a glass.
- Dunk each piece of cauliflower into the sauce, coating it fully.
- Shake the excess sauce off each piece and place in the fryer basket. The pieces can touch each other but place them in a single layer.
- When the basket is full, place it into the fryer.
- Set the fryer temperature to 350 degrees F and set the timer for 15 minutes.
- Every couple of minutes, pull the basket out and shake it so move the pieces around and ensure they cook on all sides.
- While the first batch is cooking, continue to coat the remaining pieces in the sauce.
- When the first batch is done, remove the pieces and place on parchment paper to cool.
- Repeat with the remaining pieces of cauliflower. A small to medium head of cauliflower should take two batches.
You may need or want to double the mayo and sriracha sauce you use depending upon the size of the cauliflower or if you want to serve some on the side for dipping. Just maintain the ratio of 1/2 cup to 1/8 cup. If you want to make more than one batch of these, I recommend that you chop the cauliflower ahead of time and use a plastic zipper bag to coat the pieces.
