  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup vegan Buffalo wing sauce (such as Frank's®)


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Place cauliflower florets in a large bowl. Pour egg substitute over the florets and stir to coat.

  3. Mix flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a large plastic resealable bag. Zip and shake until evenly combined.

  4. Drop 1/2 of the florets into the seasoned flour. Zip and shake to coat. Place florets in the basket of the air fryer. Spray tops with nonstick cooking spray.

  5. Air fry for 5 minutes. Flip cauliflower over, spray any chalky spots, and cook for 5 minutes more. Repeat with remaining cauliflower florets.

  6. Meanwhile, heat buffalo wing sauce in a saucepan over medium heat until warm. Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Pour wing sauce over the top and toss until evenly coated. Serve immediately.
