Gluten-Free Vegan Chicken Nuggets: Chickpea Nuggets. I don’t think I can overstate these chickpea nuggets. They. Are. Awesome. AND…they’re just 2 ingredients. Hummus + breadcrumbs (gluten-free for me)=done. Both kids went crazy for them…devouring several each as soon as they were out of the oven.
And Little Goose loved them so much that she kept eating until we ran out of nuggets. We started with 2 dozen! And it’s an incredibly simple recipe that you can mix just about any pureed veggies into for bonus nutrition. You can start with either hummus or just mashed cooked chickpeas, add whatever veggie purees you like (or go with just pure chickpeas) and mix in enough bread crumbs to form the chickpeas into nugget-sized balls (about 2 Tablespoons per nugget).

Yum! The kids and I loved these and Mr. Meaty even liked them. This is a HUGE win for our family and I’m really looking forward to trying it in all kinds of serving styles. I’ve already had chickpea nugget burrito wraps and they were delicious!
