I recently made these cauliflower tots for the kids as a side to homemade, baked chicken tenders for dinner – sort of like a healthy version of chicken nuggets and tater tots. I used almond flour instead of wheat flour to make them higher protein and Paleo (minus the cheese, which is optional).
1 head of cauliflower
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup shredded cheese (optional)
1 tsp minced garlic
salt and pepper, for seasoning
First, chop the cauliflower, steam til cooked through, and strain it. Then use a potato masher to mash it into small pieces. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
Mold into tater tot sized pieces (mine turned out a little flatter). Bake on a cookie sheet at 375 for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
My kiddos loved these!
