1 red/green chili, finely chopped

15–20 drops liquid stevia

1/2 cup vegetable broth

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tbsp arrowroot powder, dissolved in 3 tbsp water

Sea salt and pepper to taste


1/4 cup coconut flour

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 tbsp sesame seeds

1 large OR 2 small heads cauliflower, broken into small florets, about 1-inch pieces (Roughly 5 cups total)

Coconut oil, for deep frying

2 limes, cut into wedges, to serve


Step 1: For the sauce: Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan, add garlic and turmeric, and sauté until soft. Next, add the chopped chili pepper, stevia, vegetable stock, and lemon juice and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the arrowroot/water mixture and cook until thickened.  Season with salt and pepper to taste, then set aside and keep warm.

Step 2: For the cauliflower: Place coconut flour in a shallow bowl, the egg in a second bowl, and shredded coconut and sesame seeds in a third bowl. Dip the cauliflower florets into the coconut flour first, then the egg, and lastly in the shredded coconut/sesame seed mixture.

Feel free to substitute the stevia with 3 tbsp monk fruit syrup. The arrowroot can also be substituted with organic, non-GMO cornstarch or grass-fed gelatin (naturally gluten free).

You can also add in a bunch of chopped spring onion when sauteing the turmeric and garlic together for a fresh taste.  For added protein, you could substitute the vegetable broth with grass-fed organic bone broth.  My favorite brand is Kettle and Fire and you can get a special discount with them here

If you don’t like the tater tots super spicy, you can substitute the chili with a pepper dew for more mild spice.

Dr Jockers Comments

This keto crispy tater tots recipe is a low-carb, fat burning and nutrient dense recipe that tastes great and is full of life giving ingredients.  This recipe has healthy fats, fiber and antioxidants.

Cauliflower is full of cancer fighting nutrients such as sulforaphane, b vitamins and fiber.  These nutrients help to reduce growth promoting estrogens and support liver and gut detoxification.  Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory agents that helps to reduce pain, improve blood flow and support liver detoxification.

Garlic is loaded with sulfur compounds such as allicin which help to improve immune health and reduce pathogenic bacteria, viruses and yeast.  For a dipping sauce, try this coconut ranch dressing or this guacamole.  Try this recipe out and let us know how you enjoyed it in the comments box below!
