Cauliflower and Broccoli Nuggets

One of my favorite things to eat when I was younger was chicken nuggets, especially those dinosaur shaped ones. Unfortunately I learned how those are made and I became a vegetarian so it wasn't something I could eat anymore.
Thankfully Michael and I came up with this recipe for cauliflower and broccoli nuggets, and of course we make them with dinosaur shapes :)

Cauliflower & Broccoli Nuggets
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
3 stalks of broccoli, cut into florets
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat bread crumbs
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 egg
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1. Steam the cauliflower and broccoli until tender. Blend in a food processor until it has a small texture and is sticking together. You may need to blend this in batches.
2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. If the mixture is too wet, add some more bread crumbs. If it's too dry add a little bit of water. You want it to stick together, but not be too sticky.
3. Lay out some plastic wrap and press out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out into shapes with cookie cutters.
4. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. They should be browned on each side and cooked through.
