Animal Shaped Chick'n Nuggets

Super kid-friendly recipe! Have fun with these cute nuggets. If I had dino shaped cutters, I would have done that. Alas, I only had animal shaped cookie cutters.

Animal Shaped Chick'n Nuggets

* Prep Time: 10 minutes
* Cook Time: 5-10 minutes
* Ingredients:  
  • 2 tbsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp of Butler's Chik Style Seasoning, optional*
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • 1 "egg", follow box instructions
  • 1 block tofu, 10 oz., pressed, cut into animal shapes
  • vegetable oil, for frying

* Recipe:
  1. Combine all ingredients except soy milk and egg in a bowl. Mix well. 
  2. Combine the soy milk and egg in another bowl. 
  3. Heat oil in a large sized frying pan. 
  4. Press the tofu and then slice the block into four sheets. Use animal shaped cookie cutters to make animal tofu bites. 
  5. Take your animal bites and coat with the soy milk mixture, then coat with the dry mixture. 
  6. Place in heated pan and fry each side until golden. 
  7. Use ranch or bbq sauce with these fun nuggets! 
* Note: The Butler's Chik Style Seasoning is something I found on Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe and thought it would be useful for my fried chicken, etc. I used it in this because I had it. It is not necessary.

These look great! I've never seen tofu used as the base for a chicken nugget, but it seems like it would work surprisingly well.
