Broccoli Tater Tots

This is a great recipe to have in your repertoire! The tots are simple, hearty and filling – we usually make them when friends are coming over, and leave them on the table for people to pick at before the main course.

The chili powder gives the tots a gentle kick, but you can avoid chili and go for something more subtle like paprika if you’re not a big fan of spicy food.

Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 220°C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Then fill a saucepan with boiling water and place on a medium heat.
  2. Peel the potato and roughly chop it into 2 inch chunks. Add the potato to the boiling water and boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, trim and discard the broccoli stem (save the stem for a soup) and separate the head into medium-sized florets.
  4. Place the broccoli florets in the saucepan with the potato and boil for a further 2 minutes.
  5. Drain the water from the pan and leave the potato and broccoli to cool.
  6. Once cool, grate the potato and finely chop the broccoli, then transfer both to a mixing bowl.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix well with your hands until thoroughly combined.
  8. Take a large tbsp of the mixture, squeeze it in your hands to form a ball, then shape it into a cylinder. Repeat and place each broccoli tater tot on the lined baking tray.
  9. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
  10. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before serving with ketchup.
