Baked Broccoli Nuggets recipe. Easy and Healthy school lunch box snack idea. 5 ingredient recipe. We call it as HULK green nuggets. Kid friendly food.
When my son was in preschool, he had a very good friend called Jeremy. They both were like buddy buddies. They used to eat their lunch sitting next to each other, share their lunches, sleep next to each other during nap time, be there for each other the whole day at school. I wished they stayed together forever. But life, as always had other plans. Jeremy moved to France the same year we moved back to India. But, this Brocolli nugget has stayed with us as a remembrance of all nice things we enjoyed in USA. “Food is nothing but memories.”
Longggggg back, like any other day after preschool, Vedant told me about his day at school. Usually it would be the castle that he built or the monster that attacked or the things he did at school. But that day he was so excited to talk about the Hulk nuggets that he had from Jeremy’s lunch box. I asked him, what was Hulk Nuggets? He told, Mommy, they were green Hulk nuggets. Jeremy told me that Hulk eats green food and that is why Hulk is green in colour. Green food gives a lot of muscles. So I also want to take Hulk nuggets to school. First I thought it was something to do with spinach. I saw Jeremy’s mommy a couple of days later at school and I spoke about the hulk nuggets and wanted to know more about the brilliant idea. She told me it was Broccoli Nuggets, and the naming I thought was a genius to get kids eat more veggies. Here is the picture of Hulk Nugget eating Super Heroes gang from school.
