Pea & Zucchini Baked Veggie Tots Recipe – Once Upon a Farm

Pea & Zucchini Baked Veggie Tots


Say hello to these scrumptious, nutrient-packed tots you'll feel good about feeding to your tots. Just steam, mash, mix and bake to transform veggies into fiber- and protein-packed finger food. This recipe uses one of our finger-friendly, organic meals as the base: Pea, Zucchini & Basil with Hemp Seed & Avocado Oil. Serve as a meal for your little one or even an appetizer for the whole family.

Why you'll love these tots: Peas deliver fiber for digestion, protein for growth & development and vitamin A for bright eyes. Zucchini doubles down on the fiber content for digestion, while packing a punch with B vitamins for brain development. For extra brain development support for those growing bodies, we've added amino acid-packed hemp seeds.
