Broccoli tater tots is a brilliant thing! They deliver the crispy and salty creaminess from the world-famous hangover-heavenly chili cheese tops in a healthy version. But they also contain a delicious and interesting mix of satisfying flavors from the Asian kitchen.

Asian fusion

These delightful cheese balls are actually nothing light fastfood chili cheese tops, but more like small little Asian infused vegetable bites. You can also make broccoli tater tots with a more Italian inspired focus by using herbs like thyme and basil. But I think the Asian flavors really works well here. It is fastfood for a healthy foodie weirdoes like me.

Broccoli tater tots

Making broccoli tater tots doesn’t require many ingredients or much effort to make – and the reward is truly worth it.
When combining this cheesy satisfaction with my all time favourite dressing; spicy goma, the experience gets completed in the most soothing way. Don’t worry – eating them without also totally works, but the clash of these two equally creamy creations makes a party in my mouth.

Heavy and light

Broccoli tater tots contain cheese, but that is okay. The small comfort balls still contain a whole bunch of healthy ingredients.
They are doing much more than just being satisfyingly cheesy, and are perfect as an interesting starter or as a side.

  • Maria

    they look so good! Honestly, I don’t completely love broccoli, but I’m gonna try and make them anyway – I’m also thinking about instead of the broccoli use minced chickpeas or other beans! Glad to have come across your blog 😉

    • Maja Harder

      Thank you so much Maria, it is so nice to hear.
      I am sure you can use beans instead 🙂 Then they would probably just need a bit more flour.
