Baked Chickpea Nuggets
400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon granulated onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon gluten-free bread crumbs
1/3 cup gluten-free bread crumbs for coating
If you prefer the nuggets to be a bit less dry, use a pastry brush and lightly brush the outside with Grapeseed oil.
1. Put chickpeas into a food processor and process for about 20 seconds.
2. Add the nutritional yeast, granulated onion, garlic powder, salt and 1 tablespoon of gluten-free break crumbs into the food processor and blend well.
3. Place the 1/3 cup of bread crumbs into a bowl. Scoop out the chickpea mixture with a teaspoon and roll it into a ball, then form into a nugget shape. Roll each nugget in bread crumbs to coat.
4. Put the nuggets onto the baking tray. Bake for about 20 minutes then flip and bake for 10 minutes.
If you prefer the nuggets to be a bit less dry, use a pastry brush and lightly brush the outside with grapeseed oil before putting in the oven.
