Today, I'm excited to share with you a healthy and flavorful recipe - Air Fried Cauliflower with Lemon-Parsley Dressing. It's an easy dish that's as delicious as it is nutritious.

Cauliflower, the star of our dish, is a versatile vegetable that's packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. And when you air fry it, you're ensuring maximum retention of these nutrients while achieving a great texture – tender on the inside, with beautifully browned edges.


For the Lemon-Parsley Dressing:


  1. Start by rinsing the cauliflower and patting it dry. Cut it into florets and toss them with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Place the cauliflower florets in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are in a single layer for even cooking. You might need to cook in batches, depending on the size of your air fryer.
  4. Air fry the cauliflower for about 15-20 minutes, until it's tender and the edges are browned. Shake the basket halfway through cooking to ensure even browning.
  5. While the cauliflower is cooking, it's time to make the dressing. Combine the chopped parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, and minced garlic in a bowl. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, whisking continuously to emulsify the dressing. Season it with salt and pepper to your taste.
  6. When the cauliflower is done, let it cool slightly before tossing with the lemon-parsley dressing.
  7. Enjoy this healthy dish warm or at room temperature.

This recipe is incredibly versatile - you can enjoy it as a side dish or make it the star of your meal. Remember, you can prepare the dressing ahead of time and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

There you have it, folks - a simple, healthy, and absolutely delicious dish you can whip up in no time. It's the perfect blend of nutrition and flavor, proving once again that eating healthy doesn't mean compromising on taste.
