Chickpea Nuggets
Sounded like a good alternative for the I thought I'd give it a try! :)

  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/3 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup creamy Italian dressing
  • 1 egg
  1. Drain the chickpeas and rinse thoroughly. Pick out any loose "skins".
  2. Mash the chick peas till they form a paste.
  3. Shred the carrots in a  mini food processor.
  4. Combine together, then add bread crumbs, Italian dressing and egg. Mixing together very well.
  5. Take about one tablespoon of the mixture, roll it into a ball, then flatten into a nugget shape, repeat.
  6. Place nuggets on parchment paper or a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes or until nuggets are browned on both sides. Turn about halfway through baking.
  7. Makes about 18 nuggets, give or take.
  8. Serve with assorted dipping sauces.
