Oyster mushroom nuggets {vegan}

veggie nuggets

Ah les nuggetsquand on devient végétarien ou vegan c’est forcément le genre de chose qu’on a envie de reproduire. Ici on les fait souvent avec du tofu ou des protéines de soja texturé, mais aussi sous forme de nuggets de pleurotes et je peux vous dire que c’est notre version préférée ! La texture des pleurotes est juste parfaite et le croustillant à l’extérieur c’est le summum de l’extase culinaire ! Oui le gras c’est la vie et franchement avec une bonne petite sauce yaourt, une bonne salade et pourquoi pas des frites au four, it's the perfect meal and frankly you'll win points with your kids (I know what I say !!!) !

Mushrooms are so good,

I thought it made a great slogan, non ?! Stop joking, if you never eat oyster mushrooms, run and buy some because you have to try these vegan nuggets ! So yes, frying is not light light, but it's ok from time to time, and then we don't have to eat them with mayonnaise eh !!!
