Hummus Veggie Tots
I have partnered with Sabra to create these Hummus Veggie Tots as part of their 2017 Tastemakers Panel. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with their product, however my opinions are entirely my own.
These Hummus Veggie Tots are perfect as a healthy vegetarian snack, appetizer, side dish or even as an unofficial meal. My husband especially loves these and has said “I love how hearty and filling these tots are” more than once. They’re surprisingly easy to make too, and you can customize them with your favorite vegetables and your favorite flavors of hummus. I highly recommend Sabra’s Roasted Garlic or Roasted Red Pepper hummus for these, but I would also love to try them using their Lemon Twist or Supremely Spicy varieties. These Hummus Veggie Tots are packed with healthy vegetables, but I think even the most skeptical veggie-eaters will love them. I mean, who doesn’t love tots?
Speaking of hummus, did you know that May 13th is National Hummus Day? It’s the perfect excuse to have some friends over, pick up some Sabra hummus and make these Hummus Veggie Tots. Good friends + good-for-you tots is a recipe for a good time! Looking for ways to eat more hummus in time for the big day?

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 (I recommend their Roasted Garlic or Roasted Red Pepper flavors, but you can use your favorite!)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
