These crispy cauliflower tater tots are addicting and fun to eat as a snack or a dinner side dish.



  1. In a large skillet heat up coconut oil or preferred fat over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice and saute for 5 minutes, or until the texture is soft. While it is cooking, season with salt.
  2. Allow the cauliflower rice to cool a little bit. Place the cauliflower rice in a cheesecloth or towel and gently squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the cauliflower rice, egg, cheese and paprika.
  4. Try your best to form the shape of a tater tot; a small rectangle about 1-inch long and ½-inch wide. It’s ok if it doesn’t perfectly hold together. It will firm up once it is cooked.
  5. In a large skillet, heat up coconut oil or preferred fat over medium-low heat, place the tater tots evenly in the skillet. Brown on each side for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Consume the tater tots immediately or store in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 4 days.
