Crispy Broccoli Tots (Gluten-Free, Low-Carb)

Print

I would definitely give these crispy broccoli tots a try even if you aren’t a huge broccoli lover, the taste isn’t overpowering especially when you use all of your favorite seasonings- I did a mixture of sea salt, pepper, turmeric, cayenne pepper, shredded cashew cheese (or nutritional yeast), and breadcrumbs!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Perfect as a Super Bowl side, these broccoli tots are loaded with Vitamin C thanks to the broccoli and ring up at 30 calories per piece (unlike many other, highly caloric Super Bowl snacks)! In addition to being only 30 cals per tot, they contain only 2g of fat and even 2g of protein! Pair with your favorite dip and you are in business enjoy!

Crispy Broccoli Tots (Gluten-Free, Low-Carb)

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Servings: 20+ bites

Ingredients

4 smaller heads of broccoli (about 4 cups chopped finely)
1/3 cup almond flour
1/3 cup gluten free panko crumbs (or other gluten free bread crumbs of choice)
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used shredded cashew cheese, but nutritional yeast works too!)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon sea salt
1-2 teaspoons pepper
few dashes of turmeric (optional)
few dashes of cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot, boil about 5 cups of water, enough so the broccoli is submerged. While the water is heating, cut the stems off of the broccoli and add into the pot. Steam the broccoli for 2 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Chop the broccoli into fine pieces, almost so it resembles broccoli rice.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add ALL of the ingredients above and the chopped broccoli.
  5. Mix well, until fully combined.
  6. Using your hands, roll into balls using about 2 tablespoons of the mixture. Then, form the mixture into “tots” / rectangular shapes.
  7. Place on the baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Rotate/flip about halfway through! The bites will be crispy on the outside and tender in the middle! Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
