LENTIL MCNUGGETS

My kids love handheld food that they can dip. These nuggets are super quick and super tasty.

Ingredients

  • 1 19oz can of lentils, drained and rinsed

  • ¼ cup oats

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • ¼ tsp garlic powder 

  • 2 tsp ground cumin

  • 5 basil leafs 

  • Juice from 1 lemon 

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • Panko breading (whole wheat if you can find it)

  • Avocado oil

Instructions ​​

 

  1. Drain and rinse the lentils and add everything (except the panko breading and avocado oil) into a food processor. Blend until smooth

  2. Heat a pan over medium heat 

  3. With your hand form small bite size “nuggets” and roll them in panko breading 

  4. Add avocado oil to the pan and place nuggets in, turn when brown

  5. Once done set aside on a paper towel to absorb excess oil
