ZUCCHINI TOTS


 
Author: The Foodie Physician Recipe type: Side Dish

Serves: 16

A fun take on a classic kid favorite, these tater tots are packed with nutritious zucchini instead of potatoes.  Whether for after school, midday snack or asomething a side dish to a meal, your kids will love this healthy alternative!  Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

1 heaping cup grated zucchini

¼ cup finely chopped shallot or yellow onion

¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cup whole wheat panko or other unseasoned dried breadcrumbs

1 large egg

1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Olive oil

Marinara sauce for serving

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place the grated zucchini in cheesecloth or a kitchen towel and wring all of the excess water out (it will be a lot!).

Place the zucchini in a bowl along with all of the other ingredients except the olive oil.

Mix until combined. If the mixture seems too wet, add a little more breadcrumbs.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Take a tablespoon of the mixture and form it into an oval shape. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Arrange the tots on a single layer on the baking sheet and spray or brush the tops lightly with olive oil.

Bake until puffed up and cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Flip halfway through cooking.

Serve with marinara sauce or other dipping sauce.
