Course Side Dish
Prep Time 25minutes
Cook Time 30minutes
Total Time 55minutes
Servings 4People, as an appetizer
3TbspLight cottage cheese
1 1/2Tbspminced garlic
3/4CupReduced-fat Cheddar cheese,shredded
1/2Cup + 2 Tbsp Gluten free panko
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat you oven to 400 degrees and very GENEROUSLY spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Place the cauliflower florets into a food processor and blend until broken down and “rice-like.” Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir and then microwave and additional 2 minutes.
Add in the onion, cottage cheese and garlic and stir until well mixed. Microwave again for 20 seconds.
Finally, add in the egg white, cheddar, panko, parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper, to taste. Stir until well mixed and the egg white is evenly distributed.
Using a 1 Tbsp measure form the cauliflower into tots. I find the easiest is to really pack the cauliflower into a 1 Tbsp measuring spoon and then gently top it onto your hand until it comes out of the spoon in a perfect tot shape. Place it on the pan. Do this for all the cauliflower. You should end up with 32-34 tots.
Generously spray the tops with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes. Then, spray the tops generously again, and bake an additional 7-10 minutes, or until the tots are golden brown and crunchy.
DEVOUR! (I like them with ketchup!)
*I LOVE garlic, so this was great for me. If you're sensitive to garlic, you may want to use 1 Tbsp.
