Recipe Directions

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 c. Almond Meal
  • 1/4 c. Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 T. Flax seed, ground
  • 1/8 t. nutmeg
  • 1 ¼ t. Celtic Sea Salt (fine)

Mix together, set aside in bowl.

Nuggets:

  • 1 c. Sunflower seeds (soaked)
  • 2 c. Cashews (soaked)
  • 1 Zucchini
  • ¾ c. Kelp Noodles (Sea Tangle)
  • ½ c. Flax Seed
  • 2 T. Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 t. Salt
  • ½ t. Onion Salt(or more to taste)
  • ¼ t. Celery Seed
  • ¼ t. Cumin
  • 1/8 t. Nutmeg
  • Pinch Garlic Powder
  • Pinch White Pepper
  • ¼ c. Spring Water (more or less)

Place ingredients, minus water, in a food processor. Process and add water until a chunky, oatmeal cookie batter consistency, not too smooth. Scoop out with a tablespoon and shape to a nugget, roll it in the crust and put on a dehydrator screen. Repeat until used up.

Dry at 145 degrees for 1 hour, than at 100 degrees for 12 – 24 hours, until just damp in the middle. Serve warm from dehydrator. I freeze extras and warm in dehydrator before eating.

Laurao's Thoughts

By laurao

Having a toddler, nieces, and nephews that love ‘nuggets’, I’ve been playing with a possible RAW, Vegan replacement for ‘chicken nuggets’. So far, I’ve come up with this recipe that both my husband and daughter like! It’s not a complete replacement for taste and texture, but a pleasing substitute!

i just made these with some spicy raw ketchup and they were awesome. i put some more in the dehydrator before i left at a low temp so they'll be warm and crispy when i get home. hungry just thinking about it!

Dexter-many raw foodists advocate beginning the dehydration at 145 for the first hour. The food itself doesn't get to that temp and it reduces the time the food is in the dehydrator, thereby greatly reducing bacterial growth in the food.

Hi all. Yep, the Kelp Noodles are from Sea Tangle and I got them from their online site (which seems to be down right now). However, I can get them at Whole Foods too (refrigerator section). I like this recipe, but I still hope to improve on it. At first, I didn't allow them to dry enough and they were a bit doughy on the inside. So if that happens, just dehydrate them a little more. Plus, being a little warm makes them seem more like the 'real deal'. If 145 seems to high for the initial hour, bring it down. As long as the food itself doesn't get that hot, it shouldn't be that damaging as it brings the overall time in the dehydrator down. But that's your call. Nothing in life should be too rigid. ;) That's my call.

You might want to think about changing the temp for dehydration - at 145 is pretty darn high - for optimum nutrition and optimum enzymatic activity I've always learned that 105 is the highest temp to use.

whole foods will probably have them. they're clear noodles that look like vietnamese glass noodles, but they're made from kelp and say "a raw food" on the package. they're made by sea tangle. and they are my favorite noodle substitute, much better than any veggie noodle, in my opinion.

love the chicken patties! want to try them on my niece & nephews!
