  • Use a slotted spoon to scoop the florets into a food processor and blitz until fine. You can leave it chunkier if you desire.
  • Use a clean tea towel or cheese cloth to squeeze the extra moisture from the cauliflower and broccoli.
  • Transfer the cauliflower and broccoli to a mixing bowl, and add the cheese, salt and pepper. Take a small bite and add more salt and pepper if necessary.

  • Place the tots on a prepared baking sheet and slide into the oven for approximately 25 minutes. Until they start to brown.


Tips and Tricks:
1. You can made these tots bigger or smaller to your own liking. We made them almost like “nuggets”, but you can also make them smaller like normal potato tots.
