I love a good dip recipe and this one right here is amazing. Delicious roasted cauliflower, cheese, onions, garlic, and a wee bit of Worchestire sauce take this dip out of the park.

I’m the hugest fan of roasted cauliflower as you can tell from my roasted cauliflower and sweet potato recipe. Yes, raw cauliflower doused in tons of ranch is good but when you take the time to roast a cauliflower, you will be amazed by the flavor. So with that same thought in mind, I decided that this roasted cauliflower dip recipe had to be shared with you all.

How to Roast Cauliflower

For this recipe, you can use the oven to roast your cauliflower, like I did in this roasted cauliflower recipe, or if you have one, you can use your amazing Air Fryer.

To roast cauliflower in your air fryer, break the cauliflower into little florets and cover the florets with a little bit of olive oil and a wee bit of salt. Air fry at 390 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes, shaking the basket ever so often. Your cauliflower is done when it is lightly browned. Taste the cauliflower and be amazed by the delicious transformation.

How to Make Cauliflower Dip

First, wash and dry your cauliflower and break into florets. Cover with olive oil and a pinch of salt.

Add the florets into your Air Fryer (or spread on a baking sheet if making in an oven) and air fry at 390 degrees Farenheit for 20-25 minutes, or until browned. It’s ok if your cauliflower overlaps in the Air Fryer, you will shake it halfway through for even cooking.

Add cauliflower, cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream,Worcestershire sauce, garlic, green onions, and 1 cup of parmesan cheese to a food processor. Process until smooth.

At this point, you can decide if you will finish the dip in the Air Fryer or the oven. I choose Air fryer! If you are choosing Air fryer, you will likely need a 7 inch bake dish to make it fit. I’d also suggest making a foil sling to get it in and out or you can use your Air Fryer grill tray. 

Spread dip in bake dish and cover with about 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese.

Bake in Air fryer a 360 for 10-15 minutes, or until cheese on top is nice and bubbly. For the oven, bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese on top is nice and bubbly.
