Gluten Free Chickpea Tater Tots

Chickpea Tater Tots

I’m really not sure where the idea for this recipe came from. Maybe it stemmed from my growing obsession with chickpeas (see Greek Quinoa Salad, Roasted Beet Hummus, Zucchini Quinoa Burgers, I’ve basically been adding these babies to everything lately!) or my general love of tots, either way this is one healthy side dish that everyone will love!

I combined the chickpeas with Premium Gold Gluten Free Flour to keep these bite-sized treats healthy and gluten free.  I then added a few spices and a little mascarpone cheese to bring everything together!

Chickpeas don’t have a ton of flavor on their own, which means these tots need a little help from a dipping sauce to kick the flavor up a notch!  I made a Chipotle Honey Ketchup to go on the side.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder

Whisk all of the ingredients together for the perfect sweet and spicy dipping sauce to accompany the chickpea tots.

You could also add different spices to the tots to infuse flavor directly into the recipe. I’m thinking a little of that chipotle powder in the chickpea tots would be fantastic!
