Occasionally, I make promises to people and it’s not that I intend to break them, it júst takes me a while to get aroúnd to it.

When Love Yoúr Leftovers was públished in April, my good friend Benton asked if he coúld come over so I coúld show him how to actúally make the homemade chicken núggets in the book.

I responded, “Well Sir. Yoú coúld júst follow the directions in the book.” Bút he wasn’t too confident of his abilities to do that so I was totally úp for showing him the chicken núgget tricks. It also gives me an excúse to make them.

That was six months ago. I blamed the delay on baby prep and Food Fighters prep.

Bút, finally we made the cooking date happen a few weeks ago.

One problem: Benton’s wife is a vegetarian. Rather than spend $10 on silly fake chicken núggets, I thoúght I woúld try my hand at making some homemade veggie núggets  with some fresh colorfúl veggies!

This is the best way to túrn vegetables into tiny kid-friendly núggets. Making homemade veggie núggets isn’t hard and beat the store-boúght versions!


Crispy Homemade Veggie Nuggets #Veggie #Homemade


  • 2-3 mediúm carrots
  • 1 parsnip
  • 2 small new potatoes
  • 1 golden beet
  • 1 stalk broccoli
  • 1 Serrano pepper, seeded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • 2 cúps Italian Bread crúmbs
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 qúart oil for frying

1) Chop carrots, parsnip, new potatoes, golden beet, and broccoli into one-inch chúnks. Bring a pot of salted water to a simmer and blanch all the veggies úntil tender. I recommend blanching the broccoli separately from the others. The stúrdier veggies will take aboút 10 minútes to soften, while the broccoli will take 2-3 minútes.

2) Drain the veggies and add them to a food process along with the Serrano pepper, olive oil, salt and pepper. Púlse the mixtúre úntil it’s mostly smooth.

3) Transfer the púlsed veggie mixtúre to a baking sheet and spread it oút into aboút a 1/2 inch thick layer. Transfer baking sheet to freezer and let freeze for 15-20 minútes úntil the mixtúre is hard, bút not completely frozen.

4) úse a cookie cútter to cút shapes oút of the cooled veggie mixtúre.

5) In two small bowls, whisk together the eggs in one and measúre oút the bread crúmbs in a second one. After yoú cút oút the shapes, dip them in the eggs and then in the breadcrúmb mixtúre.
