  • 5 cups raw broccoli florets approx. 2 med. heads
  • 2 med. red potatoes peeled and quartered
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, grated
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 2 tbsp italian parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the broccoli florets and red potato to a steamer basket and steam until fully tender, about 8-10 minutes. Once tender, remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Chop the broccoli and potatoes very finely. You'll need 2 cups chopped broccoli and 1 cup chopped potato.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped broccoli, chopped potato, egg, parmesan cheese, almond meal, parsley, yellow onion, salt, garlic powder, and pepper and mix well.
  5. Scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture and gently press between your hands to form a ball, then shape into a tater-tot shape by gently pinching together both ends with your fingers.
  6. Place the tots, slightly separated, on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake until golden brown and crispy, about 18-24 minutes, turning half way through.
