These healthy veggie nuggets are so good the family won't even notice the difference

Nuggets

  • Cook the quinoa in 200ml unsalted water in a large saucepan, covered, for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain.
  • Mix the onion with eggs, almond flour, cheese, soy sauce and pepper. Stir in the cooked quinoa and the breadcrumbs.
  • Cut the carrots into chip-shaped strips. Cook the potato fries according to the instructions on the packet – roast the carrots with the fries.
  • Form the paste into nugget shapes and fry for a couple of minutes on each side in a medium-hot pan until crispy and golden. For the best texture, leave them to cool slightly before serving.
  • Mix all ingredients for the dipping sauce and serve with the nuggets and fries.
  • Serves 4

    • ½ onion, chopped
    • 2 eggs
