Every kid loves a tot! This recipe for Broccoli Tots are far superior to those super market freezer tots. First, they’re made from broccoli, giving you a sneaky way to add some veggies to your kids’ diets. Second, they’re made with love—yours! Don’t worry, they’re so easy to make and they come together in a flash. You can even freeze them for easy snacks and sides later on. And if their signature green color draws “yucks” from the peanut gallery, have them try it in our healthy ranch dressing and see if they change their tune.
Pair Recipe with Broccoli Tots with Healthy Ranch Dressing with:
Butternut Tots with Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Combine broccoli, egg, Colavita Olive Oil, onions, cheddar, breadcrumbs, herbs, and seasoning in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until combined but still textured, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Scoop about 1.5 tablespoons of mix using tablespoon and gently press between your hands into a tater tot shape and place on your prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture.
Place the tray in the oven and bake until golden brown and crispy, 18-24 minutes, turning half way.
Serve with healthy ranch dressing (recipe follows).
Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 400°F.
Spray the tots with just a bit of Colavita Olive oil (about 1 tsp).
Fry in the air fryer for 20 minutes, rotating or shaking the tray halfway through.
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until well combined.
Store, covered, in the fridge for up to a week.
