I have a confession to make, and I’m going to do it here. This is a safe forum to express my innermost desires, isn’t it? Here’s the deal: I’ve gone Chicken-less Nugget crazy. I haven’t been eating them constantly, but I think about them all the time. I’ve gone so far as to look at pictures of them on the internet. Boy, do I wish I was kidding.
These are homemade “chicken” nuggets! Don’t they look delicious? We can all thank cookbook author and blogger Joanna Vaught, who created the recipe for the seitan nuggets pictured above. Are you so excited to make these? I am! Joanna also does a nutritional comparison of McDonald’s nuggets, Health Is Wealth nuggets, and her seitan nuggets on the blog post! So informative and organized!
*This fixation is totally stemming from the fact that the SOMA Trader Joe’s doesn’t carry the chicken-less Mandarin orange morsels. It’s a travesty! This makes me
obsessive sad because it is the most convenient Trader Joe’s for me to frequent.

Product Review: Health is Wealth Gluten-Free Chicken-Free Nuggets! »
I have made a discovery that I’m super proud of! These gluten-free chicken-free nuggets from Health is Wealth are delicious! I’m not someone who has to eat a gluten-free diet; I just bought these out of curiosity.
They are: AMAZING! My roommate Dan described them as “succulent.” I am going to buy them over the regular ones EVERY TIME! Next time I make them, I’m going to smother them in buffalo sauce before I bake them because vegan buffalo wings are my jam!
