Servings: 20 tater tots


  • 8,5 oz | 2 medium | 244 gr. potatoes
  • 1/2 cup | 84 gr. canned chickpeas drained
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin

Tahini Sauce

  • 2 tbsp | 40 gr sesame paste (tahini)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp water


  • Boil the potatoes in a large pot with boiling water and cook for 20-30 minutes, until fork tender. Drain and let potatoes cool until they are comfortable to handle.
  • Grate potatoes on the large side of a box grater and put into a large bowl.
  • Roughly pulse the chickpeas and place them into the bowl with the potatoes. Add the salt, cumin, lemon juice and parsley and mix everything together with your hands.
  • Adding 1 tablespoon of the mixture at a time, gently use your hands to form small “tot” shaped cylinders. Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat until mixture has ended (makes approximately 20 tater tots).
  • Set in fridge to firm up and preheat oven to 400ºF/200ºC
  • Brush or sprinkle the top of each tater tot with a small amount of olive oil. Bake tater tots until crispy, golden brown, about 30 minutes, flipping halfway though.
  • Serve with low FODMAP ketchup or…

Tahini Sauce

  • In a small bowl, mix sesame paste, salt and lemon juice with a spoon until it thickens.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time and mix until well incorporated. For thinner sauce, add more water.
  • Refrigerate until serving (the sauce will thicken a bit)


Low FODMAP safe serving:
- 1/4 cup (42 gr.) canned chickpeas
- 1 medium (122 gr.) potato
- 1 tbsp (20 gr.) tahini paste
So you can eat up to half of the tater tots and of the tahini sauce.
