zucchini tater tots


these tots are a healthy twist on classic tater tots. classic tots are deep fried and made with potatoes, but these guys are baked and feature zucchini. zucchini packs a nutritional punch! it's high in fiber and several vitamins and minerals including vitamin c, vitamin k, b vitamins, potassium and manganese. one medium zucchini supplies more than half of your daily vitamin c needs! to make the tots, i mix shredded zucchini with some minced shallot and dried spices and bind it all together with an egg, breadcrumbs and yummy cheese. i like to use italian spices and a mixture of mozzarella and parmesan cheese and serve the tots with marinara sauce for dipping. but what i love about this recipe is that it's a blank slate and you can use whatever types of seasoning and cheese you like. they would also be delicious with cheddar or monterey jack cheese, dipped in a healthy ranch style sauce. just be sure to wring out as much water from the zucchini as you can. zucchini has a high water content so this step is important to prevent the tots from getting soggy. after forming the mixture into tater tot shapes, simply spray them with olive oil and pop them in the oven. after about 20 minutes, they'll be puffed up and ready to be devoured!
