Gluten Free Cheesy Cauliflower Tots

Have you heard? Cauliflower is the new potato.

Actually, it’s not all that new of a revelation. Low-carb eaters have been substituting cauliflower for potatoes for quite some time now – ½ cup of plain, boiled or steamed cauliflower has 53 less calories and 13 grams less carbs than plain, boiled or steamed white potatoes.

This is great news if you are trying to lower your starchy carb intake. But seriously, who wants to eat plain steamed or boiled cauliflower?

I tried my hand at making some gluten free cheesy cauliflower “tater” tots – minus the taters. To further reduce carbs and increase protein, I used some almond flour in place of regular gluten free flour, added some cage free eggs to bind it all together and threw in some cheese because – well what isn’t better with cheese?

The verdict – positively addictive!

Author: Carol Kicinski

Ingredients

  • 1 large head cauliflower broken into florets
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ cup gluten free almond flour
  • 2 large cage free eggs
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Gluten free nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Boil the cauliflower in salted water for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain very well and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Place the cauliflower in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse until it resembles fine crumbs (careful not to over-process). Add the almond flour, eggs, cheese, garlic and onion powders, the pepper, and ½ teaspoon salt. Pulse until it begins to come together, almost like a dough.
  • Using your hands, form about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into little logs or tots. Place on the prepared baking sheet, spray with the cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes, turning once, or until golden brown.
