Sometimes as moms you’ve gotta be a bit sneaky. We’re always looking for fun & new ways to get our kids to eat those veggies .. right? These tots will fool everyone in the house. My kids still think they’re made with potatoes and I’m totally fine with that! These are super easy to make and are great for school lunches, as a side with dinner, or as an after-school snack. I also love that you can add different spices and flavours to spice it up.
1 small head Cauliflower
1 cup Cheese, shredded
½ small Finely Chopped Onion
¼ cup Chopped Parsley or Coriander
1 cup, Almond Meal or Bread Crumbs
1 ½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 ½ tsp Paprika
Steam Cauliflower till super soft (more than fork tender), set aside to cool. In a large bowl, add in the shredded cheese, egg, onions, coriander, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and paprika. Once the cauliflower has cooled a bit, mash well with a fork and add to the rest of the ingredients. Mix everything well, if your mixture is too wet, add some more almond meal or bread crumbs till you can form small rolls. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and form the mixture into small rolls, keeping them spaced apart about and inch in between.
Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees. Take out tots when they’re nice & toasted. Serve with ketchup or any other fun dipping sauce like salsa or guacamole.
