  • Prepare you cauliflower as described above by steaming it for three to four minutes. Allow the cauliflower to drain and cool thoroughly. When ready you can prepare the cauliflower by chopping it up fine or pulsing it in a a food processor or good blender.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 370. I like to gently spray my fryer basket with nonstick before placing it into the air fryer.

  • In a large bowl, combine together the cauliflower, egg, bread crumbs, cheeses, and seasoning. Mix these together until you are able to form your tots. You can use a tablespoon to help you with this. If your mix need additional liquid, simply add a bit of water a teaspoon at a time. Tip: apply a bit of oil to your hands to help keep the ingredients from sticking to your hands.

  • Place 6-8 tots (depending on the size) into the fryer taking care to not overlap them. Fry for 5-7 minutes or until done. Repeat the process until all of your tots are done.
