  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 sweet potato peeled
  • 1/2 head broccoli
  • 1 carrot peeled
  • 1 tspn salt
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tspn black pepper
  • 1 tspn onion powder
  • 1 tspn garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. On a cutting board, grate the zucchini, sweet potato, carrot, and broccoli with a coarse cheese grater.

  3. Transfer the grated vegetables to a medium bowl and season with ½ teaspoon of salt. Mix until well incorporated.

  4. Let the vegetables sit for 20 minutes until the salt has drawn out some of the moisture.

  5. Transfer the grated veggies into a kitchen towel and twist to strain as much liquid as you can.

  6. Place the grated veggies back into a bowl and mix with the Parmesan, panko, pepper, remaining salt, onion powder, garlic powder, olive oil, and egg. Mix until well combined.

  7. Form the mixture into 20-25 even-sized tots and transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

  8. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until tots are golden brown, flipping each halfway through.

  9. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
