Cauliflower Tots

"Did you know that the average American Eats 117 pounds of potatoes each year? While potatoes are a great vegetable, they are often fried and prepared in ways that are unhealthy. One common example of this is tater tots. They are greasy, high in sodium, and heavily processed. It was for all these reasons that when I came across a recipe for cauli-tots on a blog called, "Cupcakes and Kale Chips" that I was extremely interested. I made them for a class we had in the teaching kitchen and they were a hit! The 24 tots were gone in less than a minute. This recipe would be a great way to get some vegetables into your meal in the morning, or pop them in the fridge to snack on during the week!" -Noah, a cooking instructor at the Dr. Yum Project Kitchen
