I know how much you guys are waiting for this Cauliflower Tots recipe! I firstly made those with a bit of grated cheese – well, I can not eat lactose but I can have cheese- but then I read all your comments on Facebook and realised that you all asked for a dairy free recipe. Sooo I have been back in the kitchen yesterday and develop this recipe 100% dairy free Cauliflower Tots. Well, there are not vegan as I used eggs but if you are vegan I am pretty sure you can substitute eggs by chia eggs. For one chia egg simply activate 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water.
This recipe is for all the busy mummy who do not like to spend hours in the kitchen preparing dinner BUT still love providing healthy & fun food on the family table. This one is so simple and tasty that trust me you will save it amongst your dinner favourite !
It is a bit messy to shape as the batter is sticky but if you oiled your hands it should get faster. It is also a lovely appetizer made in few minutes to offer to your guest. Another good news is you can make lots of this vegetable nuggets and freeze it!
I used a mix of cauliflower and broccoli to make those nuggets because my girl love broccoli but not really cauliflower. So mixing both was a trick to hide the cauliflower in her food again. However, feel free to use what you have got in the fridge or what is the cheaper at the store. The recipe will work well if you are using only cauliflower or only broccoli. The most important is to respect the quantity of grated raw vegetables. You must have 3 cups + 1/2 cups after processing the raw veggie in the food processor. What can I tell you more about those vegetable nuggets? Well, those vegetables nuggets are moist in the middle with a crusty oat outside layer. I love dipping them into spicy thai sauce – I promise I will share my sugar free version of this recipe soon. I used oats because it contains way much less carbs than flour – only 44 g including 10 g of fibre so it is super healthy to make finger foods that make you feel full quickly and keep your energy level steady.
If you are intolerant to gluten you can try gluten free panko crumbs instead or almond meal may work too – I did not try so if you quick it a try leave me a comment I am curious to know how it will goes with this. Enjoy ! See you tomorrow for a lovely cookie recipe ! Carine. xx.
