This Cauliflower Tots recipe is the latest on my hit parade of ‘magic cauliflower’ recipes. These crispy little guys will make you forget all about potatoes.
I recently served them up with a beautiful piece of salmon for dinner. You would think the salmon would have been the star but these little ‘faker taters’ stole the show.
They make up quickly if you’ve made the steamed and shredded cauliflower ahead of time. (See the Magic Cauliflower recipe here.)
An important tip for making Cauliflower Tots: If you’ve frozen the shredded cauliflower, just be certain to squeeze it gently in the bag and pour off the excess liquid before using it in a recipe.
If you’ve been craving french fries these just may be the answer. These are a low carb bargain: they are under 1 carb total or .4 net carbs per Tot.
And as you may have guessed from the pictures they aren’t as small as the ‘tato version. I made these with a small cookie scoop. A tot makes one big hearty bite or two respectable bites. — Enjoy!
