Crispy and Quick, Guilt-free Air Fried Cauliflower Popcorn

Cauliflower has become a popular ingredient in recent years, as people have discovered its versatility and health benefits. It is a cruciferous vegetable, meaning it is part of the same family as broccoli, cabbage, and kale. This vegetable is packed with nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin K, and fiber. It is also low in calories and carbohydrates, making it a great option for those following a low-carb or keto diet. Air frying cauliflower is a great way to cook it without adding excess oil, making it a healthier alternative to traditional frying methods.
