Crispy Air Fryer Cauliflower

Tender, golden brown air-fried cauliflower is the perfect side dish for any meal on your plan.

    10 minutes
    15 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium head cauliflower (1 1/2 to 2 pounds)


  1. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Cut 1 head cauliflower in half and cut out the tough core. Cut the florets into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces (6 to 7 cups). Transfer to the bowl and toss until evenly coated.
  3. Heat an air fryer to 390°F to 400°F. Arrange the cauliflower florets in an even layer in the basket or tray of a 5 1/2-quart or larger air fryer. Air fry, tossing every 5 minutes, until the cauliflower is tender with browned and crispy edges, about 15 minutes total.


Make ahead: The cauliflower can be cut into florets up to 3 days in advance and refrigerated.

Storage: Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
