Keto Crispy Tater Tots
Yield 20–30 cauliflower florets
FOR THE SAUCE;
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ground turmeric
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
FOR THE CAULIFLOWER:
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.
Step 3: Heat coconut oil in a small, deep pot, and fry the coated florets until golden brown. Remove from pot and drain the florets on a paper towel. Place the florets on a serving dish and then drizzle the warm sauce on top. Stir well to coat.
Step 4: Serve with lime wedges and enjoy!
Macros include 4 tablespoons of coconut oil for frying the batch of florets.

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.

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!
