Best Air Fryer Cauliflower Tacos Recipe

Lucy Schaeffer

To get extra crispy “fried” cauliflower, you gotta use your air fryer. This recipe is basically the vegan version of our favorite fish tacos. For the coating, you’ll need to make a milk and flour slurry first so that the panko bread crumbs stick to the florets. It’s a slightly tedious process, but while one batch of cauliflower is cooking in the air fryer you can be breading the next round. 

The finishing touches? A quick and easy pickled slaw for a bite of freshness and a spicy mayo for a touch of heat.
