Over the years I’ve received a lot of emails asking for a veggie nuggets recipe, similar to the frozen kind available at the grocery store. As the requests increased, I finally went out and bought a few boxes just to see what all the fuss was about. I found that although many were labeled “all natural”, most brands I tried contained tons of fillers and additives. However I tasted them and the appeal was clear, so I started working on my own version.

These nuggets are not only out-of-this world delicious, they’re also extremely easy to make. The recipe makes five times the amount of nuggets you typically get in a $5 box from the store — a $20 savings for you! Just pop what you don’t use in the freezer and you’ll never have to waste time or money on the boxed variety again.

I created this recipe especially for the weelicious cookbook and so unfortunately I can’t post it here on the site. But with all the money you will save making these nuggets, you can treat yourself to the book. It’s win win!

  2. […] Ok, I admit it I got lazy here. It was late and I was tired. So I skipped a few steps with these veggie nuggets from Weelicious. First of all I didn’t bread them, and second of all I didn’t pop them […]

  3. Thanks for making me read this whole page getting me excited to finally have options for my son just to say at the end that you can’t post the recipe. What’s the point then??? I’m really upset just wanted to make something for my picky eater who has sensory issues.

  4. I made the video to go along with the recipe in the book to give you extra help with making the recipe!

  5. I was wondering if you can share with us what is a serving size and calorie count for each veggie nugget.
    Thank you for the recipe.

  6. Hi….I know this isn’t as healthy, but do you think the nuggets might still get crispy if I fry them without using the bread crumbs? Or do mashed potatoes not get crispy when fried? Thank you.
