Happy Tutti Frutti Toast Tuesday to ya!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
Food is art & art is food.
Have fun with your food... there are no rules! So for real, have fun and play!
Bread is one of my favorite types of canvas that I love to paint.
Soooo today I added @kitehillfoods plain cream cheese with a little hot water & beet powder mixed into it, to get that nice pink color and then topped it with orange slices, blueberries and hemp seeds.
I’m sharing this with y’all in hopes that these colors brighten up your day.
Tempura Onion Rings with Spicy Mayo + Island Teriyaki Sauce.
Gluten free + vegan • Say wha, say whaaaaa.
Look- to all the onion ring haters out there, my recipe might change your mind. So flavor filled. I’m in love with an onion ring and I don’t care who knows it
I tried this two ways- both worked- first way was with just rice flour, second way was with a gluten free flour blend that has rice flour as it’s first ingredient, and a few other ingredients.
*Depending on the the flour and sparkling water you are using, the amount you will need will vary. So start off slow with your water and see if you need to add more. I used @topochicousa and needed to add 3/4 cup. But you might not need as much. You want a smooth creamy batter- not too thick/ heavy.
*Also I air fried these but if you don’t have an air fryer you can always bake them, the texture might come out a little differently than mine did and you would need to keep an eye on them since baking times could be a little different. Any who here ya go! Y’all tag me if you try them :)
1/4 cup rice flour
1/2 cup -3/4 cup sparkling water
pinch of baking soda
(Add more sparkling water if necessary)
1/2 cup gf panko bread crumbs (or reg)
1 yellow onion (into slices)
Dip individual slices of onions into batter and the let excess drip off and then dip into bread crumbs until coated. You might need more bread crumbs/ batter depending on how big of an onion you are using. Air fry at 390 for 15 min., flipping half way through. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn, everyone’s air fryer is a little different.
I topped these with homemade spicy mayo, scallions, sesame seeds, and @primalkitchenfoods Island teriyaki sauce.
#thedailykale Spicy Mayo:
1/4 cup mayo (vegan or reg )
1.5 tbsp tamari (gluten free)
1.5-2 tbsp sriracha
1.5 tsp golden monkfruit (or any type of granulated sugar)
1 tsp sesame oil
I just found out that the word ‘totchos’ existed and I really enjoy saying it now.
Maybe it’s not in the dictionary - but still, it’s a thing. And I love a made up word.
Also I love tater tots. And I love making fun food sooooo here we are.
These tater tots are next level cause they have been crusted with tortilla chips. It’s a move you’re gonna wanna take! I was so happy when I came up with this unique idea that I had not seen done before! Sooo of course I was excited to share it with y'all!
Tortilla Chip Crusted Tater Tots
Recipe by Krysten Jorgensen, aka The Daily Kale
1 sweet potato (boiled and peeled)
1/2 bag of tortilla chips ( I used Siete brand)
Spices: Cumin, Garlic powder, Paprika, Salt, Black Pepper, Chili Powder
To make the sweet potato tater tots:
I peeled and then boiled a sweet potato for about 15 minutes.
Drained and waited for it to cool.
Grated the sweet potato and then added black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, salt, cumin and chili powder and stirred it together.
Then I formed them into tater tot shapes.
Next I blended about half the bag of @sietefoods nacho chips in my food processor. I tossed each tot into the chips to fully coat.
Bake at 450 for 35 minutes, flipping half way through.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce orrrr make Totchos!
If you decide to go the TOTCHO route, here is the crema and all of the other ingredients I used.
Avocado Crema :
2 tbsp Lime juice
Handful of Cilantro
Handful of Spinach
2 tbsp Hemp seeds
Pinch of Salt
1 Garlic clove
2-4 tbsp water or more
*Blend everything together except for the avocado and only 2 tbsp of water to start.
Blend until combined. Then add in avocado and blend.
Add the extra water and blend to thin out if necessary.
I topped the tots with red onion, tomato, cilantro, black beans, @sietefoods cashew queso blanco and cashew nacho sauces, avocado crema and jalapeños.
‘Twas delicious and I hope you’ll tag me on instagram if you try it out for yourself #thedailykale
P.s. : do you call it tater tots or potato puffs? Just curious
