Broccoli Tots

Many of my recipes actually become “recipes” because I’m messing around in the kitchen. Like my Dad always says “Cooking is just confidence”.

This recipe for broccoli tots was a mixture between confidence and really wanting to use new ingredients I found that were Gluten Free and Vegan.

They are a huge hit at my table!


  • 2 cups Broccoli
  • 1 Tbls Olive Oil (I use garlic infused olive oil)
  • 1/2 cup Gluten Free Bread Crumbs (Ian’s Panko – Italian GF Breadcrumbs)
  • Onion powder to taste
  • S+P (To taste)
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese or Daiya Dairy free Cheese


  • Boil Broccoli for 2 minutes so it’s cooked but not soft (Drain and Rinse with cool water)
  • Thinly Chop Broccoli
  • In a mixing bowl combine chopped broccoli, olive oil, GF bread crumbs, and spices
  • Combined with your cheese preference
  • Let mixture cool for 30 minutes in the fridge
  • Form small tot like balls by pressing firmly together and place on a coated cookie sheet (don’t worry if they slightly relax, the cheese will help form them together)
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees


Contains: May contain Dairy based on the cheese you choose

Brand: Ian’s GF Bread Crumbs – Italian // Daiya Cheese : Vegan Cheese

Ian’s GF bread crumbs contain: no wheat or gluten, no milk or casein, no eggs & no nuts
