Who the hell would have predicted that you can use cauliflower in replace of like, everything?
But here we are.
Using cauliflower as effin’ chicken nuggets.
And let me tell you, these things are the real deal when it comes to veggie chicken nuggets..
Me and Bill made these last Saturday and they were a hitttttttt. The sauce was the best part – I have to give credit to the boy for that one. I’ll stick it at the end of this recipe for you guys.
OK, so.. these things are made with cauliflower, whole wheat breadcrumbs, and eggs to dip the cauliflower in to get the breadcrumbs to stick. We added Lisanatti Mozzarella Style Almond Shred Cheese that we got at Whole Foods ( the best cheese alternative ) and some garlic powder for fun.
THAT’S IT. I know, I know.. how can those taste good? I have no idea, but they do.. I promise
+ Cauliflower – about 30 florets ( We got one big head of that stuff and and made about 30 pieces. You can literally count the pieces as you put them on the baking sheet and decide how much you’ll want, so that’s super easy for everyone. )
+ Eggs – 4 large
+ Whole wheat bread crumbs – 2 cups
+ Lisanatti Mozzarella Almond Shred Cheese – 1/3 cup
+ Garlic powder
+ Olive oil cooking spray
+ Avocado oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degree’s F
Spray the baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray
Crack the egg’s into a bowl and mix mix mix
Put the bread crumbs into a bowl
Cut up the cheese shreds into smaller shreds so it’s easier to stick
Add the cheese to the breadcrumb bowl and mix it in a bit
Keep the two bowls next to each other to make it easy
Break off the cauliflower pieces you want and start dipping them in the eggs
After you dip it in the egg, dip it right into the bread crumbs
Simple as that. Add it to the baking sheet
Sprinkle some garlic powder over the top
Drizzle a tiny dab of avocado oil over the nuggies and call it a day
Put them in the oven for 10 minutes – then flip them over and cook for another 8 minutes.
DONE. SO EASY. ENJOY.
+ bolthouse farms cilantro avocado yogurt dressing
This is super easy to make at home as well, but we love this brand if we are in a rush or have no time to make our own dressing.
+ hot sauce
Pour some dressing into a bowl and add a couple splashes of hot sauce
Mix them both together.
Best quick dip ever with these nugs.
