Busy Besties Need Nuggets

We are two busy besties.  We have an Etsy shop where we sell accessories, Melina is a fantastic painter, I write, and we both work our slightly soul-sucking (say that 10 times fast) day jobs.  And don't even get me started about our recent Zumba addiction!  All in all, we need 30 hours in every day.

Now Melina is a ridiculously fabulous cook.   She is a born house frau and the kitchen is her domain.  I can also cook, but am generally not allowed in 'her' kitchen as she says it is too stressful for her.  Apparently when you make gravy there shouldn't be soy sauce on the ceiling and flour on the cupboard doors.  Who knew?  My job is often to come up with recipes or ideas that she then works with.  All in all, I've got it pretty good.  Wait until you see the posts of more elaborate meals she throws together.  Yup, she'll make someone a good little wifey someday.  *will duck to avoid the inevitable blow from that comment*

Though she is amazing, due to our ridiculous schedules we often lack time.  What is a vegan vamp to do?  We can't just throw a Lean Cuisine in the microwave like our carcass eating friends (who we love very much, but will inevitably be mocked frequently in this blog).  We've been left to our own devices.  Now you will see many exciting and elaborate recipes on here, but this is not one of them.   It is, however, quick and delish!  And it reminds me of a certain fast food evil empire's product which will not be named.

Here is what you need:

4 meatless chicken nuggets
1 slice of vegan cheese (we use Toffuti)
1 bun (we use multigrain flat buns, 'cause they're good AND because saying 'flat buns' makes us giggle)
Vegenaise or Nayonaise

These are the meatless nuggets we get here in Halifax at the Superstore, however we have done the same sandwich with the plain Gardein nuggets and had equal deliciousness.
Cook up the nuggets according to package directions.  Assemble sandwich with a goodly amount of Vegenaise, a slice of cheese and nugget yumminess and ENJOY!

 MMMMMMMMMM!  I gotta go eat!  More elaborate meals to follow, I swear.

  1. If you can you find me a recipe for meatless chicken nuggets, I'll name my firstborn child after both of you. (Can you see the flaw in my offer?)
