I saw the recipe posted for these things here and I immediately started craving them. I was not sure how close to actual potato tader tots they would turn out to taste like but by the picture I knew they would be worth the try. For such a small snack it is rather labor intensive, but I assure you it is well worth it because they taste like the real thing. Here is what I did:
Par-boiled an entire head's worth of cauliflower until just fork tender, not too much
Put all of that cauliflower into my Vitamix machine on about speed setting 7 and blended until only slightly chunky, mostly puree.
Add 4 whipped egg whites (make sure your cauliflower isn't so hot it cooks them)
Add 1/3 cup white cheese (I used Montery Jack)
Add 1/4 cup of yogurt
Add 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
Add 2 teaspoons of white pepper
Few Tbsp coconut oil
Mix the above well and since I don't own pastry bags cut the tip off of a ziploc bag and spoon into the open end, then pipe out shapes onto a baking sheet and place in oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Once these are done, get some coconut oil hot in a frying pan (not much is needed) and plop on the tots!
Fry until golden brown and crispy.
Then load on the salt and chow down.
The whole head of cauliflower tots were devoured in one evening....leftovers? Psh.
