Hi y'all!

As you know I've been on a quest to lose 10 lbs...I've lost 8!!! Almost there! Anyway, I've found all kinds of great alternative recipes to yummy high calorie things I love. This one is SUPER easy; they really do taste like tater tots! I found this recipe on my friend's Facebook page and she found it on Brunch Time Baker .

Ingredients:

2 cups cauliflower florets
1 large egg
½ cup onion, minced
¼ cup bell pepper, minced (optional)
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
¼ cup breadcrumbs
¼ minced cilantro or parsley (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray or oil

What to do:

1) Preheat your oven to 375°F & cover a cookie sheet in parchment paper or foil. Then, spray it with cooking spray & set aside.

2) Ok...you have two options...Steam cauliflower in hot water for 3-5 minutes or until soft, drain and chop with a knife or blend in the food processor. OR Chop or blend raw cauliflower in a food processor, place in microwave & cover with a damp paper towel, heat for 3 minutes until soft.

3) Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4) Spoon about 1 tablespoon of mixture in your hands and roll into small oval shaped tots...I kind of squished them into ovals...However it works for you.

5) Place on the cookie sheet ½ inch apart and bake for about 20 minutes. I turned the cookie sheet in the oven half way through, but you could also try and turn the actual tots over half way through...I'm not that adventurous.
