Tater Tots for a Balanced Meal?!
Posted Feb 16 2013 12:46pm
Healthy creamy pasta sauce anyone? ...coming soon!
Best, cheapest, healthiest, easiest refried beans ever! ...coming soon!
AND did you ever think that tater tots could be a well-balanced, delicious, and fun MEAL?!
TATER TOTS (without potatoes!)
Note: potatoes aren't unhealthy, but
are MUCH more NUTRITIONALLY dense!
Chocolate Covered Katie
introduced these tots which she found in an awesome cookbook by
This is what I did
Started cooking 1/2 c quinoa (in 1 1/2 c water, 2:1 ratio) to get 2 cups cooked (1c dry quinoa = 4 c cooked!)
Drained, rinsed and mashed a can of white beans (you could reserve some juice in case dough needs moisture)
Diced one small onion (about 1/2 c)
Added 1/4 c each: sesame seeds, ground flaxseed, and brown rice OR whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp soy sauce (or you could use 1-2 Tbsp miso)
Combine quinoa, beans, onion, dry ingredients, and soy sauce.
Form into balls, rolls (then sliced for tots!), or patties.
You can brown on a pan on the stove or bake in the oven (baking doesn't look as much like usual tater tots).
mustard for another health boost
The way I describe above is a double batch of the original, with a few other slight changes.
You can freeze some for later (though when I make them, I can hardly get them off the pan before they are gobbled up by all!).
Note: this pan is gone now.
I didn't use it much because of the dangers of Teflon.
I got a new pan I'll be sharing soon!

COMMENTS: would you rather see dried beans SIMPLIFIED, or Creamy Avocado Pasta next?
