Chickpea Nuggets – An Easy Vegan Snack

Baked chickpea nuggets

The VeganAsana Jr. left for college last week.

When I say left, I mean she moved into the dorm of a college 30 minutes from home and 5 from my office. So, she’s not far, but she is now eating dorm food. Of course, that presents some challenges for a vegan.

Wednesday, she was remarking that she will need to do a better job with protein. So, we had a conversation about protein snacks (like nuts). This morning, I thought that, before the weekend, I would whip her up an easy quick snack that I could drop off. And here it is!

Chickpea nugget prepIngredients

3 cups cooked chickpeas/garbanzos
1-2 T hot sauce of your choice
1/2 tsp of Bragg’s amino or soy sauce
2 T olive oil
Sea salt and nutritional yeast to taste

Cool to room temp and snack!

    OMG! This looks so good! I have to try this, sometimes I get bored of the usual walnuts, cashews, or just the nuts!

    And what? Veganasana jr is already in college? How time flies! Obviously, living so close she will drop off her laundry! Give her a hug for me!

    How long to you cook them? How long does it take for you to notice when they dry and crack? Thanks

      This batch seemed to cook for about 40 minutes. It’s a little inconsistent because it really depends on how roasted you want them and how much you marinaded them. 🙂 So, I check them every 5 minutes or so and shake the pan around and then pull them when they look dry and some have started to crack open.
