Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 16 oz bag of frozen mixed veggies (carrots, peas, corn, green beans, & lima beans)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 2.5 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook veggies according to package directions and let cool.
  3. Place veggies in a food processor and pulse a few times with over-processing.
  4. In a large bowl, combine veggies, bread crumbs, egg, salt, garlic powder, lemon juice, and olive oil. Mix well using the back of your spoon to continue to mash the veggies.
  5. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and use a small scooper to make a small ball and then use your hands to form mixture into nugget size (I think mine were too big). Line on to baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes -- flip nuggets halfway through cooking (after 20 minutes).
