Tempeh Nuggets

Tempeh Vegan "Chicken" Nuggets

Although I find myself eating much healthier than before I was vegan, I do crave the occasional “junk food” now and then. For those exact situations, these tempeh nuggets come in pretty handy.

To my surprise, they were pretty similar to chicken nuggets from the looks and tastes, so it’s definitely something you could offer your (existing or future) kids! I made some regular & sweet potato wedges and served them with ketchup & BBQ sauce as well as a salad on the side. You can also use the tempeh nuggets for a sandwich and just put them between two slices of bread together with lettuce, tomato & onion!
