Vegan Cauliflower Tots

Oh my!  These Vegan Cauliflower Tots came out so good!  I have seen lots of recipes for cauliflower tots on the internet.  However, all of them call for cheese.  Well I figured out how to make these vegan cauliflower tots dairy free.  These are a super cinch to make and they taste awesome when dipped in my homemade ketchup.   This recipe was inspired by my cheesy vegan quinoa bites.  I thought if I could get quinoa to bind, then why not cauliflower too? You definitely need to try this kid friendly recipe!

Vegan Cauliflower Tots - My Whole Food Life

I used panko bread crumbs to make mine, but you can also use gluten free breadcrumbs to keep them gluten free. I think that would work fine.  I hope you enjoy these vegan cauliflower tots as much as we did! I think these would be great served with a salad or some roasted veggies.

  1. Yum! These went right on my 'what to make next' list! I'm really enjoying your Nut Milk book, Melissa. I've learned so much about ingredients in general and have a long 'to make' list. :D
  2. I made these last night and they were sooo good! I altered mine by adding fresh chopped oregano & rosemary, curry powder to the batter. I've been making my own cashew cheese for a couple years and I make each batch slightly different. To this one I added red onion, garlic & one dried cayenne. Hubby really enjoyed these. Definitely will be a repeater. I made my own ketchup but also made it very different from yours & it turned out awesome! I'm not a ketchup fan so I had to doctor mine up. Thanks for the unspiration!
