2. Tasty Tots
What's the best accompaniment for fish sticks?
Tater tots, of course!
However, these aren't your average tots.
Rather, they use sweet potatoes and chick peas, which are much, much healthier.
Fun additions like cinnamon make for an out of this world taste that adults will love, too!
1½ pounds sweet potatoes
¾ cup chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans), undrained
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Steam or boil sweet potatoes until barely tender, approximately 15 minutes.
Peel cooled potatoes.
Shred them using a grater or food processor.
Puree chickpeas, including liquid, until smooth.
Combine shredded sweet potatoes and chickpeas in a large bowl.
Add oil, salt, pepper, onion powder, and cinnamon.
Spray sheet pans with cooking spray.
Scoop heaping tablespoons of the mixture and place 1 inch apart on prepared sheet pans.
Bake in oven for approximately 10-12 minutes, until starting to brown.
