Recipe: Veggie Nuggets

Sometimes you just want something in nugget form but you also want vegetables and this is basically the perfect fusion of those two ideas. These are pretty easy to make if you use a food processor to chop up the vegetables and if you bake them in the oven they’re really low effort but they do taste much better when pan fried. Depends on if you’re willing to spend a little more effort for better tasting food.
