Baked Veggie Quinoa Tots

Baked Veggie Quinoa Tots – a healthy (and adorable) veggie treat! With broccoli, quinoa, onions, garlic, and Parmesan cheese.


1½ cups cooked quinoa
22 ounces raw broccoli florets (about 2 medium heads of broccoli)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 yellow onion, finely diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped
1½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt and pepper


1. Preheat oven to 400.
2. Cook 1 ½ cups quinoa on the stove according to the package instructions. Steam broccoli for 8-10 minutes and allow to cool.
3. Meanwhile, saute diced onion in olive oil for 5 minutes, then add garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Allow to cool. (If onions look too large after cooking, chop them up more.)
4. Chop broccoli into small pieces and place it in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooked onion & garlic, cooked quinoa, parsley, lemon juice, Parmesan, beaten egg, salt, and pepper. Stir really well, mashing the ingredients together a bit with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
5. Scoop 1 rounded, firmly packed tablespoon of the mixture and squeeze a few times in your hand, then shape into a tater tot shape.
6. Place the tots, slightly separated, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 18 minutes. Turn the oven to broil for 2 more minutes until they are golden brown and slightly crispy.
7. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with ketchup, ranch dip or as it.
