Healthy Broccoli Tots!

May 1st,  we kicked off the “30-Day Slim-Down, Balanced Beauty-Style!

…This means eating healthier to get in shape for the summer, but it doesn’t mean depriving ourselves of the foods we love! Instead, we make swaps and smarter choices when it comes to our snacks and meals.

I found this AMAZING healthy-inspo from but switched it up to make the recipe GLUTEN-FREE! These baked tots have the consistency and flavor of your beloved french fries, without the guilt!

Broccoli is one of the BEST veggies to eat, as it is LOADED with fiber, vitamins, and is known as being one of the TOP 10 HEALTHIEST FOODS ON THE PLANET!!! I recommend getting this veggie into your diet in a fun way, by making these tots for a healthy snack, appetizer or side dish.

Not to mention- this is also a fantastic way to get your kiddos to eat their broccoli!

Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 35 mins


  • 2 cups or 12 ounces uncooked or frozen broccoli
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup gluten-free italian breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons parsley ( or cilantro, rosemary)
  • ½ teaspoon salt*
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

*Note: Readers have noted that 1 teaspoon is too much salt. If you are using table salt, only use ½ tsp or to taste!


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a baking sheet with a thin layer of oil or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Swap Potato for Broccoli. . . Low-carb, Low-cal, Low-fat!

    Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute then remove and shock with cold tap water to stop the cooking process. Drain well.

  3. Chop broccoli finely and mix throughly with the egg, onions, cheddar, breadcrumbs, and seasoning. Scoop about 1.5 tablespoons of mix using a ice-cream scoop or your hands and gently press between your hands into a firm ball then shape into a tater-tot shape. It helps to wash your hands after every few tots to keep them from sticking onto your hands. Next, Place on your prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake until golden brown and crispy, 18-24 minutes, turning half way. Remove from the oven and enjoy hot with ketchup, sriracha, ranch dressing, or your favorite dipping sauce!
