Party Cauliflower Tots

These are fun to make and will have a great success at any party. You can also shape them in a burger shape and make them as an entry dish.


1 head Cauliflower
1/3 packed cup chopped Parsley
1 Tbsp Dried Basil (or 1/4 cup fresh chopped Basil)
4-5 cloves Garlic – minced
1/2 C Parmesan Cheese
1/2 C Nut or Seed Flour – for example sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, almond, etc.
2 eggs
1/2 tsp Black  Pepper
1/2 tsp salt or more to taste


  1. Grate the cauliflower (on a box grater) or use the food processor to shred it into small granules similar to rice (see the picture). Salt it well and let it sit at least 20-30 min or more. Then, using a nut bag or a cheese cloth – strain the entire water from the cauliflower rice.


2. Return the cauliflower to a big bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Taste and season as per your taste.

3. Shape your tots or patties and lay them onto a greased pan. Bake at 400 F for about 30-35 min or until golden brown



You can serve them warm or cold. I suggest 3 different ways:

  1. Dill Yogurt Sauce – for dipping
  2. Ranch Dipping Sauce – for dipping
  3. Pesto – dollop of pesto on top of each tot
