Cauliflower ‘Tater’ Tots

Posted by Solitary Dancer on June 21, 2007

Cauliflower ‘Tater’ Tots

Thanks to GinnyL for finding and sharing this recipe.

Recipe By:Suzanne Summers


1 pound frozen cauliflower — (or 1 lb. fresh)
2 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons butter — (1/2 stick), at room temp.
2 large egg yolks
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the cauliflower in a 2-quart microwave-safe casserole. Add the water to the cauliflower. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for 8 to 10 min., until very soft. (My note: I would steam for 10 min.)

Drain, and place in the work bowl of a food processor.

Add butter, egg yolks, and Parmesan cheese. Process until mixture is smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Place mixture in a piping bag fitted with a large plain tip, or put mixture in a large resealable bag and snip off a corner.

Pipe cauliflower mixture in 1-inch lengths onto a greased baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until browned.

NOTES: From Suzanne: “After you pipe them out, freeze them before you bake them. This helps to retain their beautiful shape. (If you don’t have time for this step, the recipe works without it.)

    These can be made with Celery root, (celeriac) and instead of piping from a bag I use a large spoon and dollop what looks like crescents onto a parchment covered baking sheet. Keep an eye on these since they can dry out near the end.

    What is a serving according to this? I haven’t made this yet, but was adding the recipe to my diary on myfitnesspal.com and I put 4 servings and it says it’s 243 calories, 20 g fat, 477 sodium, 8 carbs, and 12 protein.

  3. I looked around to see if anyone else had posted a specific serving size and I could not find one. I think that is because carbs are watched as opposed to specific portion sizes. At least that’s my thinking. I guess it also depends on the size of the tots you make. What I would do is take the nutritional info for the entire recipe and when you make it and portion it out then divide the results by that number.

    Hope that helps.
