Cauliflower Tots

Hey there!

Now that I have my own kitchen I’ve been trying to be a little more creative with my food, especially when I realized practically all I eat is chicken and veggies for every meal. Today I made Tater Tots out of cauliflower and they were SO GOOD!

This recipe is super simple, super cheap, super healthy and as they say in New Zealand, super YUM! This is a win win situation mates.

These little nuggets are such a great substitute for the real tater haters which are loaded with saturated fat and sodium. (And they don’t really taste that much different!)

I hope this helps you make being healthy fun. 🙂 Feel free to share it with a friend!
