For cashew butter and milk

  • Start by making fresh cashew milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place cashews in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 4-5 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid, take out 2 tbsp. for tater tots and set aside.
    • Add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense.
    • Press Start and open spigot to fill your storage container.

For aioli

  • Add vegan mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, and sea salt to the NutraMilk (you can also use a hand blender). Process until smooth. Divide aioli in half.
  • Add avocado to one half and process until smooth.

For tots

  • Cook broccoli until tender, but not mushy. About 5 minutes.
  • Measure out 3 packed cups of the broccoli and add it to the NutraMilk. Mix for just a few seconds until mashed but do not over process. Add the minced onion, breadcrumbs, egg, cashew butter, parmesan cheese and mix until thoroughly combined. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Using your hands, portion out about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and mold it into a tater tot shape. Arrange the tots on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake the tots for about 20 minutes then flip them once and bake them an additional 10 to 15 minutes until crisp.
  • Serve with simple aioli and avocado aioli as a dip. Enjoy!
