1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried herbs (thyme, herbs de provable, or rosemary)

1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup vegan milk or The Vegg (prepared)
Liberally grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
Mash white beans with a potato masher or food processor until coarse. Don't overly mash them, you don't want them pureed.
Turn this now combined dough onto a clean surface and knead for a couple minutes. You will see the dough forming more and making gluten strands in the dough.
Once you see those strands, roll the mixture into a ball and set aside in the fridge to chill an set for 30-45 minutes.
When the dough has set, remove from the fridge and portion the dough out into 18 to 20 Nuggets. This is a heaping Tbsp sized ball per nugget.
Pour both bread crumbs onto a plate and season to taste with salt and black pepper. In a small bowl, add the vegan milk (or Vegg).
Once they are baked completely, remove from the oven and let cool until ready to serve. Serve along favorite sides and enjoy over and over. The nuggets can also be frozen and reheated when desired. Enjoy!
