Hi guys! We have been cutting down on animal products as much as possible, but I'm still learning, so any tips and recipes are very welcome.

These turned out good enough that I'll make again. I've tried a similar recipe in the past, but it didn't work out, was too crumbly.

This is the recipe I used: https://www.forksoverknives.com/recipes/vegan-baked-stuffed/chickpea-nuggets/

However I made a few changes. First of all I made 1/3rd of the recipe for 2 of us. Also I added 1 tbs of corn flour since the mixture was too liquid and a bit of chilli for more taste.

Instead of baking them for 40min, I baked them for 10-15min and then covered in breadcrumbs first using a flour/water batter (instead of an egg). Lastly, I fried the nuggets in hot oil, till golden.

The turned out really crispy outside and a little mushy in center. The nuggets went along great with several dips like vegan tartar & spicy hummus (chickpeas dipped in chickpeas). Next time I'll add cheese inside, since this plant based cheese melts way slower than the dairy ones.

Next time I'll try to remember to charge and use my camera instead of the phone ^^

Cheers!

Looks delicious!!!! 🤤

Thank you!!

I suggested my partner make some of these as he likes chickpeas but doesn't often get to use them in things because the kids whine. He is considering it and as soon as the boys heard the whining started XD

They look all right :)

Do you follow @thekitchenfairy? She makes a lot of vegetarian and vegan stuff and might be able to help with questions and stuff.

Haha I actually don't really like chickpeas and hummus in general, but I really liked these :D Didn't taste like chickpeas to me.
On the other hand my partner likes chickpeas but wasn't too happy with nuggets :P He doesn't like breadcrumbs xD
