Spicy Asian Veggie Tots

  • Author: Mary
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes


These spicy veggie tots are served hot over a sweet garlic and soy sauce, and topped with a creamy spicy sauce, along with bonito flakes, nori, and furikake.


Units Scale
  • 2 boxes of Dr. Praeger's Kale Puffs
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp mirin
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt (I used Greek)
  • 2 Tbsp Sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp furikake
  • 1/8 cup chopped nori
  • 1/4 cup bonito flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F, and cook the Dr. Praeger's Kale Puffs according to directions and until very crispy.
  2. While the puffs are cooking, heat your skillet over medium heat, then add the sesame oil.
  3. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds before adding the soy sauce, fish sauce, honey, and mirin.
  4. Whisk to combine, and bring to a simmer. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has reduced to a thick sauce — 10-15 minutes.
  5. In a separate dish, stir together the yogurt and Sriracha until smooth. Set aside.
  6. When the sauce has thickened and the puffs are done, remove the sauce from the heat. Layer the puffs in the skillet on top of the sauce. Drizzle the spicy yogurt over top of the puffs, then spinkle on the furikake, nori, and bonito flakes.
  7. Eat while warm!
