broccotots

This fun twist on a childhood favorite makes for a healthy and delicious side to any dinner! Broccoli as a substitution for potato is an easy swap and making them at home ensures you know exactly what’s going into your little ones dinner. Here’s my take on Broccotots.

These make a great side that the whole family will love (cut to my husband eating most of my sons dinner!). I can’t wait to try them with carrots or cauliflower too! Let me know what creative vegetables you “tot!”

Eat Well,
