Zucchini Tater Tots! SOOOO GOOOD.

Hey guys!

Can you even handle these cute little tater babies? 😛

They’re slightly crispy on the outside and soft and potato-y on the inside. You won’t miss the real fried starchy ones AT ALL if you make this recipe. This is the ultimate tater tot junk food healthy swap!

The sweet potato adds a slightly sweet richness to them that regular tater tots don’t have, plus you get the added bonus of zucchini inside every little bite. These are far less fatty and carby than store-bought tots, so get to the store FAST for the 4-ingredients you need (yeah, that’s it!!) and then post for me to see, admire, and drool over…because mine are gone and I already want more!!!!



Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: approx. 9 tater tots

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 55 min


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 medium russet potato
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Coconut oil cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Peel the potatoes and place in a large pot. Cover the potatoes with cold water and bring to a boil over the stove.
  3. Keep at a low boil for about 25 minutes, or until just fork tender but lightly firm in the center. Drain and cool slightly.
  4. Shred the zucchini with a cheese grater. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt. Let sit 5 minutes, then squeeze out all liquid using a clean towel. Add to a large bowl.
  5. Grate the potatoes and add to the bowl with remaining salt and garlic powder. Add pepper to taste.  Combine everything using your hands until well combined.
  6. Using a tablespoon, form small balls and then shape into tater tots. (You should be able to make between 36-38)
  7. Coat a nonstick baking sheet or parchment with cooking spray. Lay out all the tater tots and coat the tops well with cooking spray. Bake for 30-32 minutes. Serve with a low sugar ketchup or BBQ sauce.

    So yummy. Will have to give it a try. I have done it with Opal too. It is an Asian vegetable. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

    Hi! Sweet potatoe is not so popular in my country, therefore it is a bit pricey. Can I use regular potatoes instead? Is this recipe okay for a 28 day reset? Thanks a bunch

      Hi Aysenurp!
      I think you can since they are not deep fried but it won’t taste the same

      It should’t be a problem. I suggest you to use something more affordable that has a similar taste, like pumkin (it has a similar taste to me) or even something that hasn’t it but you consider will work. IDK have fun with the recipe.

      If you are worried that garlic powder isn’t ok for the reset I think you can substitute for actual garlic

      I don’t think regular potatoes are in the 28 day reset, but sweet potatoes are. Wondering how good these would be with just sweet potato — they look soooooo gooood!
