  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup butter beans or canned chickpeas
  • 1 cup roasted tofu (optional) sub with more beans
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning or Rice seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • cornstarch 
  • milk to dip
  • crushed corn flakes  
  • spicy Korean BBQ sauce 


  1. Add the flour to a bowl and mix in the water until you have a smooth dough, cover and let it rest for an hour.
  2. After an hour, cover the dough with water and wash out the starch, this takes approximately 5-10 minutes until you have a nice stretchy dough.
  3. Add the dough, nutritional yeast, beans, tofu, and seasoning to a blender and blend until smooth then dust with cornstarch and keep in a fridge container for 2-3 days and use as desired!
  4. Here you can slice it into strips for stir-fries, make nuggets, burgers, Snitchels, and the list goes on!
  5. For the nuggets: cut off some of the dough, roll it into nugget shapes, and roll in some cornstarch, milk and crushed cornflakes (season as desired) then place on a baking tray & lightly drizzle with oil and air-fry or bake until crispy.
  6. Dip in your favorite bbq dressing, these nuggets were drenched in a Korean bbq sauce I found in the store!
