What's this?

You don’t have to sacrifice taste when eating healthy. Let our signature wood-fired flavor elevate this baked cauliflower tots recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 Head Cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 Cup panko breadcrumbs

  • 3/4 Cup cheddar cheese

  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan cheese

  • 3 Tablespoon chives, chopped

  • 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 Tablespoon onion powder

  • As Needed canola oil

Steps

  • 1

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place cauliflower florets into boiling water and cook 5-7 minutes until tender.
  • 2

    Strain and place florets directly into an ice bath until cool. Strain again when cool and place florets into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower resembles rice. Process the florets in batches to get an even texture.
  • 3

    Place cauliflower rice on a double layer of cheesecloth and twist it up into a ball. Squeeze excess water (make sure you remove as much as possible) and transfer cauliflower rice to a large bowl.
  • 4

    Add remaining ingredients and mix to combine. If mixture seems to wet or dry adjust with an additional egg or more panko breadcrumbs until the mixture stays together.
  • 5

    Form the cauliflower mixture into desired shape and place on a sheet tray. Transfer the sheet tray to the fridge and let the tots rest for 30 minutes (this will help them keep their shape and stay together).
  • 6

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 10-15 minutes.
  • 7

    Clean the hot grill grate with a grill brush then brush the grate with canola oil. Place the tots directly on the grill grate along the edges.
  • 8

    Cook the tots for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Resist the temptation to move them around too much or too early.

    For the best results, remove them one at a time as they finish. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces. Enjoy!
