Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add broccoli and cook for 1 minute or until broccoli is very tender. Strain and rinse with cold water
Chop cooked broccoli into fine pieces and add them to a medium sized bowl
Add egg, egg white, green onion, cheese, breadcrumbs, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the bowl. Stir well to combine
Form mixture into about 28 “tot shapes”

To make in air fryer: preheat fryer to 390 degrees for 3 minutes. Spray basket with cooking spray, add tots to basket (you will likely have to do this step in batches, I did mine in 2), spray tops with more cooking spray and air fry for 4 minutes. Tots should be crispy and browned
