CHeesy ‘keto’ cauliflower tots

Adapted from Real Simple

(Serves 4)


  • 3 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ½ cup parmesan, plus more for topping
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine the cauliflower rice, egg, onion, almond meal, parmesan, mozzarella, chives, and garlic powder. Season with a generous pinch of salt and several turns of freshly ground pepper, and stir it all up!
  3. Form the mixture into tots and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Space them evenly.
  4. This is optional, but I suggest adding a little extra parmesan cheese here. Just sprinkle a little on each tot.
  5.  Off to bake! Leave them in for about 18-20 minutes. Flip them once after about 9 minutes, and continue baking until golden brown.
