These cheesy nuggets of joy might be better than the real thing. I am in love with how golden the air fryer gets!
4 c. cauliflower florets, steamed (about 1/2 large cauliflower)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 c. shredded cheddar
1 c. freshly grated Parmesan
2/3 c. panko breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. freshly chopped chives
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c. ketchup
2 tbsp. Sriracha
1.In a food processor, pulse steamed cauliflower until riced. Place riced cauliflower on a clean kitchen towel and squeeze to drain water.
