Broccoli Tots

Prep time

Total time
58 mins


  • 12 oz bag of frozen broccoli florets (4 cups; 340g) - you can use fresh broccoli as well
  • 1.5 lb potatoes (about 4 medium russet potatoes; 24 oz)
  • 3 tbsp of parmesan cheese (optional - can add more cheese too)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • olive oil spray
  • Fody Foods ketchup & yellow mustard to dip


  1. Wash/scrub the potatoes or peel them. Put 2L of water in a medium/large pot, and add the broccoli florets and potatoes. Turn heat on high, and let the water come to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium low. Cover the pot with a lid, and let it simmer until the potatoes are soft - this should take about 15-20 minutes (more if larger potatoes and less if smaller potatoes). Check that they're soft/tender with a fork. Drain the pot, and let the potatoes cool. 
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  3. Put cooked broccoli and potatoes in a large bowl. Mash it with a potato masher or fork. Add the parmesan cheese and salt & pepper to taste. Mix together well.
  4. Use your hands to form tots. Place tots on the lined baking sheet. Makes about 90 tots.
  5. Add olive oil spray evenly to tots. Bake for about 25 minutes. After baking for 25 minutes, I like to switch the oven to a high broil, and broil for a few minutes. This makes the tots crispier - be sure to watch your oven closely the whole time you're broiling because some ovens broil quicker!
  6. Serve with ketchup and/or mustard, or eat plain. Best served warm. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in fridge for a few days. Can freeze them as well.
