Vegan Baked Masala Veggie Tots

These vegan, baked tots are the most delicious and healthy ones. With less oil and lots of veggies, this will be loved by kids too, even though they may not be a great fan of veggies. Loaded with veggies and nuts, this is a guily-free snack! This can be a great appetizer for any occasion, or party, or for game day!

These are made with carrots, broccoli, potatoes, sweet potatoes/yam, and zucchini! Lots of veggies. Almond flour is also used along with flax seed powder, these increase the nutritional value while making it easier to hold and shape these tots.

It is important to squeeze out the water from the veggies. If skipped, it will be impossible to shape them, and they may not bake well. Sprinkle the salt and let the veggie mixture sit on the colander. Water will get collected and then squeeze out maximum to have the veggies with low moisture.

Ketchup is a perfect one to dip and devour these tots, but any creamy dips like this vegan Cashew, Cilantro, and Coconut Sauce will also be great with these tots. The spices added in these tots will give a unique flavor to these tots. If you do not have these, spices, salt and pepper can also be used to make. Garam masala or curry powder can be used. If you love a spicy version, add finely minced Thai chiles to the veggie mixture. I love that version though my kids are not in favor of a very spicy version.

Game day is near by, and these are amazing ones for the same. February is #NationalSnackMonth and this is a perfect and healthy snack. Did you know that February 2 is TaterTotday? So many reasons to enjoy this tot! Christie is hosting an event where we share a recipe featuring tater tots or the ones made using tater tots! Very interesting event as you have many choices. This vegan baked masala veggie tots is a great and delicious snack, and that's my share for the event. We share Recipes From Our Dinner Table! Join our group and share your recipes, too! While you're at it, join our Pinterest board, too!

Baked Tater Tots is yet another delicious snack that will be crowd pleaser. This Gluten-Free, Low Carb Cauliflower Bites is my favorite version. Tortilla Taco Cups and Taco Stuufed Sweet Peppers are also great snacks that your family will love!
