My kids love to handheld food that they can dip. These nuggets are super quick and super tasty.
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)
Drain and rinse the lentils and add everything (except the panko breading and avocado oil) into a food processor. Blend until smooth
Heat a pan over medium heat
With your hand form small bite size “nuggets” and roll them in panko breading
Add avocado oil to the pan and place nuggets in, turn when brown.
Once done set aside on a paper towel to absorb excess oil
