Healthy Vegan Football Food Part 2......Jackfruit "Chicken" Nuggets

We love our Sundays!  If anyone knows me and Ryan, they know that Sunday is our ridiculous grocery excursion day.  Today we rounded out at hitting up 4 completely different grocery stores.  It's sad, but true.  One store we the market in Chinatown, solely to pick up (drum roll please)....JACKFRUIT!  Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed.  It's a great meat replacer, but note, there is not much protein in it at all, so make sure you get protein elsewhere!

I thought about using these to make nuggets, and what better day to do that on than football Sunday?  By properly seasoning the fruit itself and the panko bread crumbs, you really come up with a tasty creation.

Jackfruit "Chicken" Nuggets

This vegan football snack turns out to be low in calories and carbs and guilt free!

Dip in your favorite sauces!  I found that agave nectar was the best pairing!

1 can jackfruit
1/4 c flour
1/2 c panko crumbs
egg replacer mixed with water
onion powder
garlic powder

Preheat oven 425.  Drain jackfruit completely and pat dry with paper towels.  Half or quarter (depending on size) each piece, removing seeds if possible.  Season with spices above.  Set up your dredging station with three bowls: flour, egg replacer and seasoned panko crumbs.   With each piece, coat in flour, then egg mixture, then panko.  Cook in oven for 15-17 minutes.
