Gluten free Cauliflower Quinoa Nuggets (Vegan)


I’ll admit I want to create a new recipe all the time and even when I’m down to minimal ingredients to work with I tend to be able to whip something yummy up.

I made these in the past and tweaked them then thought why not bread them and make healthy nuggets. So within a 15 minute food prep viola new creation.

Ingredients for nuggets :
7 cauliflower florets
1 1/4 cup quinoa
1/4 cup gluten free oat flour ( grind oats into flour)
1/3 cup almond milk
1/2 tablespoon low sodium better than bouillon  ( in place of oil or butter)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 /2 Gluten free bread crumbs ( seasoned with 3 tablespoons hemp hearts, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon

Cook the quinoa as per directions on package. Separately cook the cauliflower. Once cauliflower is cooked turn it into mashed cauliflower. Season with onion powder, garlic powder, bouillon soup mix, and seasoning salt adding in non dairy milk to combine. Then stir in the quinoa and add the gluten free oat flour. Next you want to form the mixture into little nugget patties. Then the mixture is sticky enough to just coat in the bread crumbs. Feel free to use regular bread crumbs I prepare all gluten free foods. Freeze the nuggets for 5 minutes. Add the a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes at 350°.
