{Cauliflower Tots}

March 25, 2014

Good morning, friends!!  I was a bit disconnected because our internet connection has been out, but I was so excited to wake up this morning to find that we were back online.  Yahooo!!!  I have been dying to post a new recipe I tried last week.  I was craving all things bad for me…French fries, tater tots, onion rings, anything fried, so I took to Pinterest to find a healthier alternative that would satisfy my craving.

I came across these cauliflower tots from Skinny Taste, and boy were they delicious!!  Not only are they healthy, but they are hubby-approved around my house!  These are really easy to prep, and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
  • 2 cups cooked cauliflower florets, finely chopped * See note
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 3 tbsp minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar chess, grated
  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray


* To cook the cauliflower florets, steam a little over 2 cups raw cauliflower florets in a little water covered for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender, then drain well and dry on paper towel.  Using knife, finely chop and set 2 cups aside.

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Spray a nonstick cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture in your hands and roll into small ovals.  Place on the cookie sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until golden.

Makes about 32-34 tots
