  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen broccoli and cauliflower, cooked according to package directions and cooled.
  • teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup panko crumbs


  • Preheat oven to 400-degrees Fahrenheit
  • In a food processor, pulse the cooked and cooled vegetables along with the salt and pepper until creamy, but still slightly chunky.
  • Remove the vegetables to a bowl and mix with ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, egg and flour.
  • Place the panko bread crumbs into a shallow dish.
  • Use two tablespoons or a small ice cream scoop to drop large dollops of the vegetable mix into the dish of panko crumbs.
  • Gently roll the vegetable tots in the panko crumbs until thoroughly coated. Once coated re-roll the tots into uniform balls.
  • Place the coated tots on a baking sheet that has been liberally sprayed with olive oil spray. Lightly spray the tots with a coating of olive oil spray.
  • Bake the broccoli cauliflower tots in a preheated 400-degree Fahrenheit oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet and turn the tots over. Return the vegetable tots to the oven for an additional 15 minutes or until browned and crispy.
  • Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce or dressing.
