  • 3 carrots peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 head cauliflower broken up
  • 1 head broccoli broken up
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tspn onion powder
  • 1 tspn salt
  • 1/2 tspn pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups bread crumbs


  1. In a food processor, blend carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, garlic, egg, onion powder, salt, and pepper until combined.

  2. Add 1¼ cup of bread crumbs and blend just until incorporated.

  3. Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture and form a small circular-shaped “nugget.”

  4. Place the remaining ½ cup of bread crumbs in a bowl and cover each nugget with the bread crumbs.

  5. Pan fry with a small drizzle of oil over medium-high heat until both sides are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Or, you can bake them on a piece of parchment paper at 400˚F for 25 minutes, flipping after the first 15 minutes.

  6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
