This week's recipe is a little different! I decided to do a low carb cauliflower recipe. The Cauliflower tots are super tasty and easy to make. Follow along and see how I made these gluten free cauliflower tots.
There are some things you need to know about this recipe:
The important thing when making these tots is to squeeze the excess liquid out of the cauliflower puree.
They should be eaten when warm and are better with the sauce I indicated below. However, my husband used sour cream with his and he enjoyed that as well.

How to make these homemade gluten-free cauliflower tots?
Cut the cauliflower head into the florets. Wash and add them to a steamer. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the cauliflower florets are tender when you poke it with a fork.
Add to a food processor and process until purée consistency.
Transfer to a cheesecloth or thin tea towel and press out as much water as possible.
Transfer cauliflower purée to a bowl and add the paprika, garlic, salt, pepper, egg, Romano grated cheese, Mexican shredded cheese and mix well. Let it cool to the touch.
Spray the nonstick spray on the air fryer rack.
Use a teaspoon and scoop out the cauliflower mixture and roll in a ball to combine, they roll into a tube and press the top and bottom of the tube shape. This will form your tot. Continue until you make 24 or more cauliflower tots and add to the greased air fryer rack.
Note: if you decide to make them smaller, it will take less time so adjust as needed.
Add the cauliflower tray to the air fryer, 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Let it sit for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy with sugar free ketchup and sriracha sauce.
Tip: They may stick a little bit when they come out. Use a metal spatula and slide below the tot so they can release without breaking apart.
