Zucchini Tots

These zucchini tots are the perfect way to incorporate more veggies into your diet. They are baked rather than fried, and are a great low carb alternative for a snack, lunch or breakfast. Quick and easy to make with just a handful of ingredients, they can be made ahead of time and will last in the refrigerator for 5 days or can be frozen and reheated as needed. These healthier tots are a hit with kids and adults alike! These tots were created by the Rolling Harvest Food Rescue Nutrition Team.
