WHY IS CAULIFLOWER SO POPULAR?
Cauliflower is a very popular vegetable right now. One of the reasons is it has a similar texture too potatoes, but without all the carbs. You can find cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza crusts and cauliflower crisps in grocery stores now. With so many people eating low-carb and keto now, cauliflower has become the IT veggie!
When I first got my air-fryer I decided I wanted to make gluten-free cauliflower wings. I had seen so many photos on social media of cauliflower wings that I needed to try them myself. Wow were they good! Now you too can make air-fried spicy cauliflower wings.
I have a Philips XXL Air Fryer and it is one of my favourite small appliance purchases. How does an air fryer work you might ask? An air-fryer cooks food by circulating fast moving air around it. The movement of the air results in crispy food much like you would get if you traditionally fried something in oil. The great thing about an air fryer is that you use little or no oil. You can use no oil but I like to brush a bit of oil on the foods when I air fry them.
IS CAULIFLOWER GOOD FOR YOU?
Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, K and B6 as well as minerals like potassium and manganese. Cauliflower is quite high in fibre, which is a benefit for overall health. Over 3 grams of fibre in every cup. Because cauliflower is a good source of fibre it then slows digestion and promotes a feeling of fullness. It is also a great source of antioxidants which protect cells from inflammation and reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease.
Cauliflower is also high in choline. Choline is an essential nutrient that supports metabolism, brain development and a healthy nervous system. Cauliflower is low in calories and is a great substitute for rice, potatoes or pasta.
These gluten-free air fried spicy cauliflower wings are a simple, delicious an easy to make snack. I love them with a creamy ranch dressing and a bunch of celery sticks. I really do have a hard time not eating the whole batch when I make them. These cauliflower wings are a healthy snack for movie night rather than the typical bowl of popcorn or salty chips.
