Veggie Nuggets – Vegan and Gluten Free

Veggie Nuggets

Veggie Nuggets

This is a great kid friendly recipe that is packed full of veggies.  The kids (and adults) love anything that they can pick up and dip, so this is a fun way for to get veggies in.  I think we all get a little tired of eating vegetables the same way all the time.  Veggie nuggets are a great way to give the family some variety, but still eat healthy.

This time of year is so busy for my family.  It seems like we have something going on every night of the week.  Both of my older kids are involved in sports and always have school stuff happening. Even with all the craziness, I still feel it is important to sit down to dinner as often as possible and I also like the kids to have a healthy meal before they play or practice.  I can’t always make it happen of course, but its a goal.  I also have learned the hard way that eating is essential before going to the ballpark because the concession stand food is scary and vegan options don’t exist.

Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I can’t believe how long it has been since a lasted updated my blog.   I guess life just got in the way, but I’m ready to start again. So much has happened in the last few years. Lots of happiness and sadness.  But now it is time to make time for the things I love to do.  I certainly haven’t stopped cooking but I really have missed my blog.

Since my last post my son has been diagnosed with a gluten allergy. He had a lot of crazy symptoms that I never would have thought were related to food.  He was dizzy, had severe joint pain and developed a rash.  Once we got him to the right doctor and eliminated gluten from his diet all of his symptoms went away and haven’t come back.

In my house we use Siracha like ketchup.  My husband especially loves anything spicy, the hotter the better for him.  Last night the kids were with Grandma, so I made Siracha Garlic Tofu just for my hubby.  Just a warning this is really spicy, but if you are a fan of heat this tofu recipe is definitely for you.  I served it with a Asian cucumber salad to help put out the flames a little.

I have never been a big fan of tofu, but I have found a new way to cook it that I really like.  I have started baking the tofu for at least 45 minutes at 325 after it has been marinated.  This gives the tofu a firm texture and really helps it take on the flavor of the marinade.

I love the combination of the cilantro and lime in this dish.  I served the tofu with black beans, but it would be great on its own as well.
