“Cheesy” Cauliflower Tater Tots



“Cheesy” Cauliflower Tater Tots

These gluten-free, dairy-free tater tots make a great snack with any favorite dipping sauce.

  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • ¼  cup onion, finely minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast (or grated Parmesan)
  • ¼ cup parsley, minced
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • ¼ cup almond flour (or gluten-free breadcrumbs)
  • 1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Oil or line a baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a large pot, add cauliflower florets to salted boiling water and cook until fork tender.

  3. Strain cauliflower; let sit in fridge until fully cooled. Or place in the freezer to speed up this process.

  4. Add coconut oil to a small skillet on medium heat. Add onions; sauté 2–3 minutes, until translucent. Add garlic; sauté 3 minutes, being careful not to let garlic brown. Turn off heat, place in a small bowl, and set aside.

  5. When cauliflower is cooled, place into a food processor and pulse just until finely shredded, the size of rice. Place in a large mixing bowl.

  6. Add nutritional yeast, parsley, salt and pepper, and mix together. Fold in onions and garlic. Add salt to taste, as needed.

  7. Add almond flour and egg; mix thoroughly.

  8. Form into small tater tots and place on oiled or parchment-lined pan. Bake 15–20 minutes on each side, or until crispy brown. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
