Prep Time 25minutes
Cook Time 30minutes
Total Time 55minutes
Servings 4People, as a side
3 1/2CupsBroccoli florets(290g)
1 1/2Tbspminced garlic
1/2Cup + 2 Tbsp Gluten free panko(or regular if not GF)
1tspSalt(if salt sensitive try 3/4 tsp)
Pinch of pepper
Preheat you oven to 400 degrees and very GENEROUSLY spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Place the broccoli 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, salt and pepper. Stir until well mixed and the egg white is evenly distributed.
Using a 1 Tbsp measure form the broccoli 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 broccoli. You should end up with 27-30 tots.
Generously spray the tops with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes. Then, spray the tops generously again, and bake an additional 7-12 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.
