You will need

1 small cauliflower (about 300g)
1 small broccoli (about 300g)
2 carrots, grated
1 can chickpea
1 1/2 cup oat flour
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flaxseed mix with 6 tbsp hot water)
2 tsp granulated garlic
2 tsp granulated onion


In the small bowl mix flaxseed with water and let is sit about 15 mins. Preheat oven to 180 C. Steam broccoli florets for about 2 minutes, then add cauliflower florets and leave another 2 minutes. Leave to cool. Place cold broccoli and cauliflower in a food processor and pulse for 30 seconds, add the chickpea and pulse several time again until well combined. In the medium bowl mix the grated carrot with broccoli & cauliflower & chickpea mixture, add ground sunflower and pumpkin seeds, granulated garlic and onion and about 1 tsp of salt. Mix and then add flax eggs and oat flour. Mix until well combined. Season with salt, if necessary. Mixture should form easily into a nuggets. If itís too crumbly, add water one teaspoon at a time until you achieve the desired consistency. Form mixture into nuggets (or balls, cutlets etc), about a half tablespoon each. Arrange the nuggets on a silicone baking sheet (or baking paper) and bake for 15 minutes from one side, then flip over and bake another 15 minutes or until golden brown.
