Nugget lovers, prepare to be impressed! These taste almost too good to be true!  

Servings: 4
Preparation: 15 mins
Cooking: 6 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats.
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast.
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika.
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to serve.
  • 1 egg, beaten.
  • 400 g paneer (cut into cubes).
  • 3–4 tablespoons coconut oil.

Directions

1. Using a food processor or high-speed blender, blend oats to form a flour. Add to a bowl with nutritional yeast, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. This will be your seasoning. Set aside.
2. To a separate small bowl, add the beaten egg.
3. Dip paneer into the egg wash and then into the seasoning. Ensure all sides are coated and continue until all paneer chunks are coated.
4. Heat coconut oil in a skillet pan over a medium-high heat. Cook coated paneer chunks for 3 minutes, stirring gently to brown each surface.
5. Serve as a snack or alongside a salad for something a little heartier.


Note

Serve with Homemade Tomato Sauce.

Dairy-free option: Use tempeh in place of paneer.

Gluten-free option: Use certified gluten-free rolled oats.
