  • Summary

    This play on traditional tater tots swaps in cauliflower and carrot for the usual potato, adding a sweet, vegetal flavor and a good dose of fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins. The baked method might be easier (and slightly healthier), but the super-crispy fried method is more finger-licking good. Either way, these tots are the perfect party snack.

    Ingredients

    • 2 medium carrots (about 8 1/2 ounces), peeled, coarsely chopped
    • 8 ounces cauliflower florets
    • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
    • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
    • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan (about 1 ounce)
    • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar (about 1 ounce)
    • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 3 tablespoons chopped chives
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 1/2 cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs), divided
    • Nonstick vegetable cooking spray
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 3 large eggs
    • Ketchup, for serving
