Quinoa + Hemp Nuggets
Whole Food Plant Based | Vegan | Oil Free | Kid Approved
Makes 30-35 Nuggets
1/2 Cup Cooked Cauliflower
1/4 Cup Veg-Cheese
1/2 Cup Cooked Carrots
1 TBSP Nutritional Yeast
1 Clove Garlic
1 TSP Salt (optional)
1 Cup Cooked Quinoa
3 TBSP Bread Crumbs
1 TBSP Turmeric
1/4 Cup Hemp Hearts/Seeds
Preheat Oven to 400 F.
Steam or boil your Cauliflower and Carrots until just soft.
In a food processor combine the cooked cauliflower, cooked carrots, veg-cheese, nutritional yeast, garlic, and salt.
Place into a large bowl and hand mix with the cooked Quinoa.
In a separate bowl, mix the bread crumbs, turmeric and hemp hearts/seeds.
With your wet mixture roll 1 TBSP into balls. Coat them in the crumb mixture and flatten them into coins.
I put them into a silicon mini muffin pan. They work perfectly. You can lay them out in an even layer on a silicon lined baking sheet if you don't have a silicon mini muffin pan.
Bake for 23-25 minutes.
