We came into this with every intention of making this recipe taste as close to chicken nuggets as possible. We failed, and have resolved into thinking you can’t really recreate that. But our effort led us to something better. And honestly, what are you doing looking for vegetarian chicken nuggets expecting it to taste like McDonald’s?
“[We’d] eat these, no problem,” was the general consensus from the Pepper team after tasting these nugs. They have a varied mix of textures, enveloped in a crunchy exterior. Their flavors are similar to that of a falafel, just earthier, and generally heartier. Feel free to dip them in whatever sauce you like—diet-friendly or not.
PS: To be fair, they do look like chicken nuggets.
