Total Time 20 minutes



  • 1 small cauliflower head cut into florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Drizzle the cauliflower florets with olive oil, then toss with turmeric, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper so that they're well coated in the seasoning.
  • Roast in the Air Fryer at 390°F (200°C) for around 15 minutes flipping every 3 minutes.
  • When the air frying process is done, remove from the air fryer basket and serve on a plate. It can be enjoyed either warm or cold.


  • You have to keep an eye on the cauliflower as it's being roasted in the Air Fryer as it can burn easily, it's also different from one cauliflower to another depending on the freshness of the cauliflower and the density of the florets (so it might take less or more time). Check every 3 minutes and shake the basket so that the florets are roasted evenly.
  • Use your favorite seasonings. You can add curry powder, cumin, coriander, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, etc.
  • You can use avocado, or corn oil instead of olive oil.
