This Air Fryer Cauliflower Looks And Tastes Just Like Popcorn

© Joel Goldberg The air fryer makes making cauliflower a cinch! You can season it simply but we use ghee and turmeric to make this cauliflower look and taste like popcorn

We love cauliflower at Delish. From honey-garlic to a loaded cauliflower bake we have found endless ways to make cauliflower delicious. But with this recipe we set out to combine our love of cauliflower and the our obsession with using an air fryer. This recipe is simple, fast and will give you a new favorite veggie snack or side.

Now you could simply sprinkle cauliflower with olive oil, salt and pepper and use your air fryer as detailed in the recipe below but we wanted to make something a little more fun. Cauliflower, when broken up into florets, kind of already resembles popcorn, so we decided to lean into that.

By adding turmeric you really get that iconic look of buttered popcorn but the real secret to getting that popcorn taste is ghee, or clarified butter. You can often find it in the grocery store but you can also learn how to make it here. Ghee, on its own, already smells like buttered popcorn, so melting it and tossing your cauliflower with it, will have you wishing they sold this at the movies. If you can’t find ghee, regular melted butter will work, but we promise it’s worth it.

If you tried this cauliflower recipe, let us know how it came out in the comments below.

Yields: 2-3 servings

Prep Time: 5 mins

Total Time: 20 mins


  • 2 tbsp.

    ghee or butter, melted

  • 1/2 tsp.

    garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp.


  • 1

    small head of cauliflower cut into small florets

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a small bowl whisk together ghee, garlic powder, and turmeric. Place cauliflower in a large bowl and pour over the ghee mixture, tossing to coat until all the florets are tinted yellow. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat air fryer to 375º for three minutes. Add cauliflower to air fryer basket in a single layer and cook, tossing halfway through, until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
