Cauliflower and Mozzarella Tater Tots

  • Servings : 6
  • Prep Time : 15m
  • Cook Time : 35m
  • Ready In : 60m


  • 2 lbs. cauliflower heads, broken into small florets
  • 1 bunch scallions, minced
  • 2 tbsps. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  • 1 egg white, lightly whisked
  • ¾ cup panko bread crumbs
  • parchment paper
  • cooking spray


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 F. In a pot of boiling water, add the cauliflower florets. Cook for 10-15 minutes until tender. Then, drain the cauliflower, and return to the pot and let it air dry for 2-3 minutes. Mash the cauliflower using a potato masher until it has a rice-like texture. Transfer the mashed cauliflower in a bowl, and set aside to cool.

Step 2

Once the cauliflower has cooled, add the scallions, parsley, cheese, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, eggs, and bread crumbs. Combine all these together.

Step 3

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and grease it using a cooking spray. Scoop 1 ½ - 2 tablespoons of the cauliflower mixture onto the baking sheet, forming small tube-like shapes, until the rest of the mixture have been used.

Step 4

Bake for 15-17 minutes until the top of the tots are golden brown. Flip and bake for 3-5 minutes so all sides are browned. Serve with mayo or ranch dip. Enjoy!
