But for times when you're feeling a bit more virtuous, there's a way to enjoy the tastiness of tots without all the calories and fat. My friend Sue posted a recipe for cauliflower tots about a week ago and I knew I had to try it stat. The tots looked so good, and I couldn't wait to see if the cauliflower version would taste as good as traditional tots.
I'm happy to report the tots were delicious! While they don't taste the same as tater tots, they are a tasty treat in their own right. I highly recommend making these for dinner tonight!
Serve with Curry Ketchup!
*Recipe from Skinny Taste
2 cups cooked cauliflower florets, finely chopped
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1/2 cup onion, minced
3 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
1/2 cup Wisconsin sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used panko)
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and add salt and pepper to taste. Using your hands, take 1 Tbsp of the mixture and form into a small oval. Repeat, repeat, repeat! Bake 16-18 minutes, flipping halfway through, cooking until golden.
Tell me: What's your favorite way to use cauliflower?
