Broccoli Tots - Primal, Paleo, Kid Friendly and Clean Eating
I think that this recipe is responsible for the total broccoli love that the youngest person in our house feels. As the former ‘will only eat white food’ member of the family it gives me great pleasure to watch these tots last seconds on the plate; truth be told they are a huge hit with everyone. They are a little messy and can take some time to make, but they are worth the effort.
340g broccoli florets
1 large egg
1 large egg white
½cup finely chopped spring onion
⅔cup cheddar cheese grated
salt and pepper to taste
To cook the broccoli florets, blanch in a pot of boiling water for 1 minute, then rinse under cold water and drain well; dry on paper towel.
Using a knife finely chop and set 2 cups aside.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C/ 400 degrees F
Spray a non-stick baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.
There are two ways to make the tots –
1. take a tablespoon, get a heaped spoon of the mixture, and roll it into an oval.
2. take two teaspoons and create a Quenelle, scoop up a mound of the mixture, pass the mixture from one spoon to the other gently smoothing into an oval shape.
Place on the baking sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes, turning halfway through cooking until golden.
