Cheesy Cauliflower Tots

image

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella or shredded cheddar cheese
  • ⅛ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup Whole Wheat Panko breadcrumbs ( or 4C Gluten-Free Crumbs)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste (about a dash of each)
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • cocout oil

 

Instructions

1.Preheat oven to 375° and grease a baking sheet with coconut oil or line with parchment paper. While the oven is heating, steam cauliflower until fork-tender. Once the cauliflower is steamed, pulse in a food processor until coarsely grated, about 5 pulses.

2. Combine all of the ingredients, and stir together in a large mixing bowl. Because the mixture doesn’t expand in the oven, you can form the tots into any shape you like. I chose oval, for a more traditional look, but you could also form into balls, squares, or even hearts for a fun twist. Form the mixture into desired shape, and place tots on the baking sheet one at a time.
3. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the tots over. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
