If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to make frozen cauliflower, look no further than your air fryer or Ninja Foodi!

The air fryer is a small convection oven that circulates hot air around food making it the best method for cooking frozen vegetables like cauliflower. The result is a cauliflower floret that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

This method takes just a few simple steps. Season, air fry, and serve!

🔥Ingredients & Tools

  • Frozen Cauliflower Florets – You can use frozen cauliflower florets from the frozen section of your grocery store. Popular brands include Birds Eye, Green Giant, and Fresh like frozen.
  • Cooking Oil Spray – Used to coat the cauliflower so the seasonings stick and infuse while air frying.
  • Dry Seasonings – Use a mix of salt, pepper, garlic powder, or any of your favorite dried seasonings.
  • Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi – Any air fryer will work but you can also use a Ninja Foodi to make this recipe.
  • Tongs – Used to remove the cooked cauliflower from the air fryer and toss without getting burned.

🧊How To Make Frozen Cauliflower In Air Fryer

1️⃣Preheat the air fryer: Turn the air fryer on to 400F for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Season the frozen cauliflower: While the air fryer is preheating, season the cauliflower by adding it to a mixing bowl. Spray evenly with a light coating of cooking spray, then toss with salt, pepper, garlic, or your favorite dry seasoning.

3️⃣Air fry frozen cauliflower: Add the seasoned frozen cauliflower to the bottom of the air fryer basket in a single layer and set the timer for 20 minutes

4️⃣Flip halfway: At the halfway mark, flip or toss the cauliflower to evenly cook. Continue to cook for the remaining 10 minutes or longer to the desired level of crispness.

5️⃣Remove and serve: When the cauliflower is finished cooking, remove with tongs. Taste to adjust seasonings and serve.

👩🏻‍🍳Chef’s Tips

  • Preheating the air fryer is important to help the cauliflower cook evenly.
  • If your air fryer doesn’t have a preheat function, just turn it on to 400F for a few minutes before adding the frozen cauliflower.
  • Make sure to evenly coat the cauliflower in cooking spray or oil before adding your seasonings. This will help the seasonings stick and infuse while air frying.
  • If you want extra crispy cauliflower, cook for a few minutes longer. Just keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.
