Cauliflower and Broccoli 'no tater' Tots

It's a lovely sunny 24 degrees day here in London and we are going away tomorrow for a week. This meant trying to use what is in the fridge.

Now, when its 24 degrees outside, I really don't want to be making a 'comfort food' meal or something that involves steamed broccoli and cauliflower. However, tater tots are perfect.

These healthy alternative tater tots are great for a snack or a side to a meal and kids love them too!

Dunked into ketchup and you'd never know that they are made with vegetables.

They also freeze which is GREAT!
