Courgette tots with cheese, chives & red onion



It’s been 2 years since I posted my recipe for tater tots so I decided to create a new recipe based on those delicious potato tots, this time using courgettes! To avoid them being too bland I added some red onion, some dairy free cheese (but you can of course use normal cheese), some chives and pepper. To hold it all together we’re using eggs and breadcrumbs and that’s it in terms of ingredients!

It’s really easy to make this but you do need a good grater, peeler or spiralizer or you won’t be able to get the right consistency. You can use a cheese grater for example and slice the courgette up that way. If you have a peeler you can cut the courgette into ribbons and then cut them up in smaller pieces. If you have a spiralizer it’s more or less the same thing: use it and then chop them up a bit more.
