Lentil McNuggets

My kids love 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)

  • 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
