Want to impress your kids? Make these AIP ‘tater’ tots…but, I challenge you to not eat them all yourself. I had some leftover chimichurri sauce that the kids and I dipped these in, it was amazing.
I can't even begin to describe my happy with this one! I mean, tater tots-enough said! I intended to make these and serve them with dinner...they didn't make it. Between myself and the kids, we 'taste tested' them, until they were gone.
They are a bit labor intensive, but, the most time consuming part is hand forming them and I just sat at my table and watched an episode of 'The Crown' while making them.
- 5 green plantains
- 1 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 cup lard or cooking oil I used both bacon lard and avocado oil and both tasted great
Peel and divide plantains into chunks, toss in a food processor. Pulse for 15-20 seconds.
Add seasonings and continue to pulse until it looks like rice size, be careful not to over process or it will paste.
Take a small spoonful at a time and roll and form into 'tater tots'.
Pan fry in a heavy bottomed pan, I used my cast iron. Once golden brown, set on paper towel to drain and season with salt to taste. Try not to inhale.
