Cheddar ‘Tater’ Tots
Author: Susan Maria Leach, Before & After
- 1 cauliflower head, leaves removed
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and cut in half
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Sea salt
- ⅓ cup Greek yogurt
- 4 ounces yellow cheddar cheese, freshly grated
- ¼ cup fresh parsley
- 2 large eggs plus 2 egg whites
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Slice head of cauliflower into ¾ inch planks and arrange with the garlic on a Pam sprayed sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast until softened and edges are browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Transfer roasted cauliflower into a food processor. Add the yogurt, cheese, parsley, the 2 whole eggs, ½ teaspoon salt, pepper and pulse until smooth.
- Beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold the cauliflower mixture into the egg whites.
- Fill each mini muffin tin about ⅔ full and bake until puffed and golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 24 tots.
- TIP: I use a small metal ice cream scoop to portion into my mini muffin tins.
