This is adapted form a recipe I found on VegWeb.com. It is really tasty and easy to make! I just made it for the first time today, and I really like it. The texture is a little softer than I think it should be to compare it with Chik-Nuggets, but that doesn't really matter. If you prefer not to fry, I'm sure it would bake well in the oven. I just try to use the oven as little as possible in these hot summer months.
Combine in a small mixing bowl:
1 Tbsp. chicken style seasoning
3/4 cup hot water
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. Braggs or soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp. vegan parmesan cheese
Then mix in:
1/2 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)
1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes (or use real mashed potatoes and reduce the water to 1/3-1/2 cup)
Add more water or more mashed potato flakes as needed to make a consistency that will stick together. Then form into patties, sticks, or whatever shape you want. Press into the following mixture:
2/3 cup bread crumbs (approximately)
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tbsp. oil
Heat 1-2 Tbsp. oil in frying pan. Place patties in hot frying pan. Brown on both sides, adding more oil when you flip them, if needed.
