Crispy Bean Tots

Crispy Bean Tots

Tater tots.  Classic cafeteria lunch food right?  The reality is, they really are not very different from french fries.   Potatoes, fried in oil.  But kids love them!  Our version is made from garbanzo beans which are high in fiber, protein, and B vitamins.  We bake them instead of fry and they still turn out crispy, but are healthy and delicious.

Garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas) are so versatile, and really make great kid food.  They are super nutrient dense, which we love because sometimes kids don’t eat a lot at a time.  If you can pack in the nutrients in a smaller amount of food, then you definitely don’t stress as much about how much your child is eating.  These tots are a great way to do this.  They literally have at least double the nutrition that a regular tater tot would have.  This is how they stack up against potatoes.
