When I decided to become vegetarian, I was clear and sure I did not want to constantly eat food that resembled the animal products I was consciously not going to eat. And even more, I was never a fan of traditional chicken nuggets when I was not vegetarian. So when I was offered to try vegetarian “chicken” nuggets I was not interested. My friend insisted in buying me a bag to try… and the rest is history.
This is not something I eat frequently. But there are some times you want a snack, something to nibble on – you know, the munchies… and when that time comes, these veggie nuggets usually hit the spot. Here’s a photo of the packaging for your reference.
They’re super easy to make. I just put them in a sheet pan sprayed with some canola oil spray and into a 400 degree toaster oven. In 15 minutes or less, you’ll have crispy and tasty veggie nuggets. Enjoy them on their own or with MayoKetchup sauce for dipping.
The catch… I have to buy them when I travel to NYC’s Chinatown. I have not seen them anywhere else.
