Vegan ‘Chicken’ Nuggets

Vegan ‘Chicken’ Nuggets

It’s that time of the week again. Meatless Monday! I love nuggets so I thought I would make a ‘meatless’ vegan ‘chicken’ nugget to snack on. These are actually quite filling and instead of a snack, could be used easily as a meal.

These are delicious, crispy and crunchy. Vegans and non vegans alike, will love these nuggets. The kids will love these too.

These Vegan ‘Chicken’ Nuggets are not hard to make and don’t take long. I used Hov’s Kitchens Peanut Satay Sauce to give it a nice satay flavour through the nugget. Then used the satay sauce as a dip. YUM ..

‘Chicken Nuggets’

For the nuggets, get your ingredients ready. You will need rolled oats, cooked chickpeas (Fresh or canned, doesn’t matter), an onion, some garlic cloves. Then your spices – paprika, cumin, salt/pepper, nutritional yeast and of course Hov’s Kitchens Peanut Satay Sauce.


Panko breadcrumbs, cornflakes and cashew milk. That’s it. Easy!

Let’s make nuggets ..

Get out your food processor. Turn the oven on to 180C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Put the crushed cornflakes and Panko breadcrumbs onto the tray and cook for 3-4 minutes. Take out and set aside for later.

Add the onion, garlic, oats to the food processor and whiz until it’s crumbly. Then add the rest of the ingredients to the processor and give it more of a whiz until it all comes together. (Do not add the breadcrumbs or Cashew milk)

Divide the mixture into 24 nuggets, then coat with the cashew milk and roll into the crumb mixture. Lay the nuggets on the baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes – just so they hold together.
