Air Fryer Honey Sriracha Cauliflower
When I think of the phrase “honey Sriracha” it makes me think of game day foods. I think it stems from the sriracha sauce.
That tangy and spicy sauce often times is shuffled into the football food or game day snack food category. Honestly, our Honey Sriracha Cauliflower can fit into that category if you want.
This recipe is perfect for game day, especially if you want to bring a meatless flare or a vegetarian option to your game day celebration! I am pretty sure that even your meat loving friends will dive into this dish!
The secret is most certainly in the sauce for this recipe!
How do you make honey sriracha sauce?
It is actually quite simple to make this delicious sauce. You are going to whisk together a few simple ingredients and then you will be ready!
Our Honey sriracha sauce ingredients are:
- Coconut Aminos (or gf soy sauce)
- Sesame Oil
- Rice Vinegar
This honey sriracha cauliflower bites are the perfect replacement for air fryer wings! As you know we LOVE our air fryer and that is how we made this recipe!
Let’s recap WHY I LOVE MY AIR FRYER!
- This kitchen gadget is easy to use, straight out of the box.
- There are endless recipes you can make!
- Cook times are faster than your conventional oven and often food is equally heated.
- The cook time of a recipe is the actual time, unlike waiting for the pressure to rise on your instant pot or your oven to preheat!
- It uses a lot less oil!
- You can easily adapt recipes you already!
Let me just admit it here, that I love my air fryer. I think it has become fairly clear over the past year or two that I LOVE this kitchen gadget.
It was originally a Christmas gift that my mom bought my husband and I. She always likes to get us things for our kitchen. One of her friends suggested this oil less fryer! So off to Khols she headed with her coupon and got us one!
While I’d read all the rave reviews about how amazing the air fryer truly was, I seriously had NO idea how much I’d really love it! From the moment I unwrapped the gift, my mind was already racing with everything that I couldn’t wait to cook in it.
Trust me when I say that if you’ve been on the fence about purchasing an air fryer, encourage yourself to go ahead and make that buy. Once you use it just ONE time, you’ll be wondering what took you so long to make that decision!
Honestly, at this point in time we couldn’t be more thankful we were gifted an air fryer. We love our air fryers. Yes, we do have MORE than one!
These air fryers have come staples in our home. Many people ask how we store them. We actually do not have a lot of counter space, so we keep them in our laundry room. (which is slowly turning into a second pantry!)
Side note: If you are in the market for an air fryer, I recently created a post about the best air fryers on the market. The post is based off of reviews from friends, family and online consumers! Be sure to check out the best air fryers on the market!
What are Coconut Aminos?
Coconut Aminos (affiliate ad link) are my new favorite thing! It is a sauce (that is completely delicious) and it is made from coconut sap. It is a thin dark sauce that has a sweet and salty taste. It is very similar and can be exchanged for soy sauce. Coconut Aminos are gluten-free.
Does my soy sauce need to be gluten-free?
If you use a soy sauce and you have Celiac Disease, a wheat allergy or a gluten sensitivity you need to make sure it is gluten-free. If you DO NOT have any of those restrictions you can use non gluten-free soy sauce.
Just exactly how HOT is sriracha? Is Sriracha spicy?
That is a good question. I can tell you when it come to spiciness, I am a total wimp. I can tolerate easily 1-2T of sriracha sauce in a recipe. After that the HEAT kicks up a notch for me. So basically, its a hotter sauce but not THE hottest!
What country did sriracha sauce come from?
I searched the interwebs for this answer. I wasn’t sure. It appears that sriracha originated in Thailand from a Thai woman.
Even Cabi the Tabby approves of this recipe 🙂

- Dip each cauliflower piece into the sauce to cover the cauliflower with sauce.
- Gently place cauliflower in the air fryer at 370 degrees F for 10 minutes. Shake the basket mid way through (about the 5 minute mark). 10 minutes will give you tender cauliflower. If you prefer crunchier cauliflower, lessen the time.
