morning star veggie nuggets Tips:

Try not to over blend! Beat the carrots and broccoli first, and afterward add the other fixings. Beat a few times until consolidated and thick, not soft.
In the event that you want crunchier veggie chunks, use panko breadcrumbs. Note that pre-baking panko prior to covering will assist with accomplishing a pleasant brilliant variety to your chunks.
Flip most of the way to guarantee the two sides are cooked equally.

These veggie nuggets are delicious on their own. But since most kids love to dip, you can serve with their favorite condiment, like ketchup, ranch dressing or you can go for this homemade greek yogurt sauce.
