I doubled the recipe and it made 30 nuggets. I did over fill my melon ball scooper.
veggie nuggets for kids (and adults!)
Recipe adapted from Nickelodeon.com found at weeklybite.com
- 8 oz (half a bag) frozen mixed veggies (carrots, peas, corn, green beans, & lima beans) – I had organic mixed veggies from trader joes it did not have lima beans.
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- Juice of 1/2 small lemon
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook veggies according to package directions. Let cool. Place veggies in a food processor and pulse a few times (don’t over process). In a large bowl, combine veggies, bread crumbs, egg, salt, garlic powder, lemon juice, & olive oil. Mix well using the back of your spoon to continue to mash the veggies.
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Using a small scooper (I used a melon ball scooper), scoop the mixture onto the baking sheet. Using your hand, shape into a nugget form.
Bake at 350 degree for 40 minutes. Flip nuggets to other side after 20 minutes.
