How to make Lentil Nuggets



These tiny bites are super crunchy, super healthy, and so easy to prepare.


Made with a vegan filling of spinach, tofu, and lentils, they're perfect as a party nibble or light lunch.

Step 1

In a food processor, blitz lentils with onions, garlic, spinach, and squeezed tofu.

Step 2

Next, combine the lentil mix with flour, chillies, and salt into a compact and pliable dough.

Step 3

For each nugget, pinch off a small handful of dough, roll it into a ball, and then flatten it in between your palms.

Step 4

In a bowl, combine water and flour into a batter. In another bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with paprika, black pepper, and salt.

Step 5

Now, dip each nugget first in the batter and then in the breadcrumbs until it's evenly coated.

Step 6

Then, transfer the nuggets onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
