HOW MUCH CAULIFLOWER CAN I COOK IN MY AIR FRYER AT ONCE?

The amount of cauliflower you can cook at once in your air fryer depends on the size of your air fryer. The cauliflower should be in a single layer when air frying. A half a head comfortably fits in my 4-quart air fryer.

HOW TO STORE AIR FRYER CAULIFLOWER

Store your uncooked cauliflower in your refrigerator for up to 1 week until you're ready to cook. If your cauliflower has developed brown spots, cut them off before cooking. Store your cooked air fryer cauliflower leftovers in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH AIR FRYER CAULIFLOWER
