I absolutely love cauliflower, is that weird? Growing up, I would regularly eat a big bowl of steamed cauliflower with just butter and salt with my lunches. My boyfriend hates cauliflower. So I thought I would try a little experiment to see if I could disguise it into something he loves...like tater tots! I have tried the infamous cauliflower "mashed potatoes," which came out fantastic, so when a friend told me about this tot recipe, I had to give it a shot. I have to say these were probably one of the best "healthy" recipes I have ever made.
Baked Cauli-tots (adapted from Cupcakes and Kale Chips Blog)
1 head of cauliflower, chopped and steamed
1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar
1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan
1/2 c of panko breadcrumbs (I used garlic flavored, but plain is fine)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion salt
1 tsp sea salt
Perfect compliment to any meal..
The boyfriend will now admit he loves cauliflower. Though ONLY in this form.
I'll take it!
Do you have any interesting recipes that disguise veggies?
