#CheekyTots: Surprise guests and kids with these Cauliflower delights!

Baked Cauliflower Tots

As the name suggests these are baked cauliflower bites which are egg-free. 

It’s a really simple, easy snack which can double up as part of an appetizer platter or even kid-friendly after-school snack. They won’t even realize they are eating cauliflower!

Everything goes into a bowl, then onto your baking tray shaped into tots.  20-25 minutes after, your snack is ready to go.

While the original recipe, which was truly inspiring, called for cheese in the recipe along with eggs, this egg-less version has neither.


– Two cups of chopped cauliflower steamed for 3 – 5 minutes in boiling water.
– ½ cup of finely chopped onion (roughly half a small onion)
– ¼ cup of finely chopped green bell pepper
– ¼ cup of finely chopped red bell pepper
– ½ cup of shredded paneer
– ¼ cup of bread crumbs
– ¼ cup of cooked, mashed or grated potato
– 1 green chilli, finely chopped
– 2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh coriander
– Salt and pepper to taste


Steam cauliflower florets in hot water for 3-5 minutes. 

Drain, chop them fine in food processor for few seconds only or using a knife.  Into a bowl, add the cauliflower, onion, bell peppers, coriander, green chilli, potato, salt and pepper and mix well.

Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees celcius.

Prepare small cylindrical shaped tots.  Place the tots on a lined, greased baking tray some distance apart.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Oven temperatures vary, hence keep an eye on them after 18 min.

Serve with ketchup or green chutney.
