Vegan Nuggets with Quinoa and Roasted Peppers

Dinner, Lunch, Main Dish, side-blog

I made these delicious Vegan Nuggets with Quinoa and Roasted Peppers recently.  The nuggets were crispy and delicious, and were made from chickpeas, rolled oats, onion and nutritional yeast, along with a blend of spices. I served them over a bed of quinoa and roasted red peppers.  This dish was nutritious and delicious.

Mom’s Organic is another great place to buy fresh veggies and baking ingredient’s.  Their assortment of fresh produce is outstanding.  Check out my Shop Page for a nice selection of kitchen essentials like slicers, cutting boards, food prep bowls and more.
