Broccoli Tots (21 Day Fix Approved)

Submitted by Jessica Cunha

7 bites = 1 green, 1/2 red, 1 blue, 1/2 yellow

Ingredients:

  • 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.
