Now that Z is eating all finger foods... damn time is flying... I have been looking for ways to make veggies more fun. Not that he dosent eat his veggies normally... Kid love him some zucchini and carrots... but this is something I can send to daycare that is not just plain old veggies. Hubs and I tried them too and they are pretty good!!
Recipe: Cheesy Baked Cauliflower Tots
1 Small Head of Cauliflower (or half of large head)
1/3 C Shredded Sharp Cheddar
1/4 C Grated Parmesan
2 tbsp Almond Flour (I substituted with GF Al Purpose Flour for Z @ School, no nut products)
1/2 tsp Salt
Chop up the Cauliflower into big chunks and place in a microwave safe bowl with plastic wrap over the top. Microwave for 2 minutes to get it soft (if you don’t have a micro, boil it for a few minutes, you just want it tender enough to be able to puree it in the food processor easily). If there is any water, drain it. Otherwise put it in the food processor and chop it all up… not to much so it is not puree.
In a bowl, mix the cauliflower, cheddar, parmesan, flour and salt. Once it is all combined add the egg.
Use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture into mini muffin tins. Bake for 15 minutes @ 400 degrees. Take them out, flip each one of them over in the tins and bake for another 15 minutes.
The website says that they don’t reheat well, I disagree. I made 24 of these (one batch) and put them in the fridge and served them 3 at a time to Z. He loved them and they were perfectly fine reheated.
