Hummus Veggie Tots

Yield: 5 (5 tots each) servings


  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • ¼ cup sliced carrots
  • ¼ of a small onion
  • ½ cup chopped zucchini
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Sabra hummus (Roasted Garlic or Roasted Red Pepper flavor)


  1. Place the broccoli florets and carrots in a microwave-safe bowl and cover the bowl with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Transfer the broccoli and carrots to the bowl of your food processor and combine with the onion and zucchini. Cover and pulse several times until the vegetables are minced. Transfer the minced veggies back into a mixing bowl and combine with the remaining ingredients. Stir together until well combined.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and mist with cooking spray. Take a rounded tablespoon of the veggie mixture and use your hands to form it into a tot shape. Place the tot onto the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining veggie mixture to create 25 tots. Mist the tops of the tots with cooking spray.
  3. Bake the tots for 10 minutes and then remove from oven to flip them all over. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes. Serve warm.

Why not call them veggie tots with hummus?  They are certainly NOT Hummus tots.

3 3/4 cups of NOT hummus ingredients, 2 eggs and then, WOW, 1/3 cup hummus (see recipe).  I do note that hummus is garbanzo beans, vegetable oil, salt and spices so it IS a vegetable at its core.

With your host busy with multiple hurricane news, a deadly earthquake, Korea, Obamacare, riots in St Louis, etc, the most significant "complaint" you could make was that a recipe that includeshummus and veggies as major ingredients should be called "Veggie Tots with Hummus" rather than "Hummus Vegetable Tots?"

Maybe next you can go into Baskin Robbins and complain Chocolate Chip ice cream is misnamed because it's mostly vanilla with just a small percentage of chips?  Then pick on the name brand coconut yogurt I'm eating (it's vanilla, and there's not a significant amount of coconut).  And that Cherry Coke I didn't buy (because of the calories, not the name) has almost no cherry - there's mostly sugar and water, so let's rename it Carbonated sugar water with a smattering of cola and cherry flavorings.

If you have some spare time to do something more useful...help some hurricane and earthquake victims instead of worrying about hummus:

American National Red Cross

Compassionate care to those in need.

Donate to this nonprofit

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country, and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of roughly 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the more than half a million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through over 700 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world. Some four million people give blood—the gift of life—through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. And the Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected. Donate. Give Blood. Advocate. Volunteer. Get trained.
