1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 large egg
1 large egg white
½ cup onion, diced
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
½ cup low fat cheddar cheese, grated
½ cup seasoned Panko breadcrumbs
salt and pepper, to taste
Cook the cauliflower florets by pouring ¼ inch of water into a large pan over medium heat. Once the water is simmering, reduce the heat to low and add the cauliflower. Cover with a lid and let simmer for about 5 minutes. The cauliflower should be tender, but not mushy when done.
Preheat the oven to 200˚C.
Chop the cauliflower into fine pieces and place into a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir.
Shape about 1½ tablespoon of cauliflower mix into an egg-shape and place on a prepared baking sheet. Be careful not to overcrowd the baking sheet.
Bake for 25 minutes, flipping the tots occasionally to brown each side.
Serves: Makes 15 tots.
