Low-Carb Broccoli & Sweet Potato Tots

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 6

Equipment

  • food processor

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and chopped
  • 1 head broccoli
  • ½ cup organic ricotta labna or tofu
  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp parsley chopped
  • Salt
  • black pepper freshly ground

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a baking sheet with a thin layer of coconut oil or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute then remove and shock with cold tap water to stop the cooking process. Drain well.
  • Steam sweet potato in vegetable steamer until soft enough to poke with a fork.
  • Add all ingredients to the food processor, beginning with 1 cup of almond meal, pulse, and gradually add in another cup. You may not need the full 2 cups. You want the mixture to be sticky and hold together.
  • Scoop about 1.5 tablespoons of mix using a ice-cream scoop, measuring spoon, or your hands and gently press between your hands into a firm ball. Then shape into a tater-tot shape. It helps to wash your hands after every few tots to keep them from sticking onto your hands. Next, place on your prepared baking tray.
  • Bake until golden brown and crispy, 18-24 minutes, turning the tots half way through. Remove from the oven and enjoy hot with homemade ketchup, Sriracha, or your favorite dipping sauce!
