Author Notes

I love buffalo chicken wings, but one of my favorite vegan restaurants in Philadelphia, PA. Bar Bombón, makes me not miss them at all.

This is a light, savory, and fiery recipe that will make you crave for more. —via.aldente

Really tasty! I think the yogurt sauce could have been thinned a bit -- I used greek yogurt -- but you just can't argue with these flavors. Also...I did decide to roast the cauliflower instead of air frying. (375 degrees for 30 mins) because the giant head of cauliflower in my refrigerator would have overwhelmed an air fryer for sure.

It’s delicious, my son isn’t into the cauliflower but he didn’t even notice he was eating it. It’s pretty easy to cook and the air fryer gives it a different texture, better than the oil in a pan.

I’m so excited to tryout this recipe this weekend! I’m sad I found it after football season, but I’m betting it will become my go to (zoom) party dish this spring!

When I tried these, I could not belive they were cauliflower. The airfryer gives the most delightful light, crispy consistency that's better than any fried chicken. They're super quick and easy to make and you can customize the flavor to your liking. They can also be deceiving with how filling they are - I couldn't get past three! I highly recommend this recipe for a delicious, quick and easy dinner/snack.
