7 bites = 1 green, 1/2 red, 1 blue, 1/2 yellow
- 12 oz broccoli florets
- 3 egg whites
- 2/3 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese or mozzarella, grated
- 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminium foil.
Partially cook the broccoli in a pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Rinse under cold water and drain well, then dry with paper towels. Using a food processor, finely chop the broccoli and put into a bowl. Add the other ingredients and combine well.
Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture into your hand and form into a ball. Place the balls on the cookie sheet and slightly flatten. Bake for 16-18 minutes, flipping them half-way through the baking process.
Makes about 28 tots.
