Adam from BuzzFeed's "Worth It" YT series makes vegan nuggets and sauce. Adam from the very popular "Worth It" video series, exposes that he is as much of a charming curmudgeon as we all expected, and is also a very good instructional cook for fast-food vegan cuisine. Nuggets and ranch are on the menu!

Adam is the silent camera guy and editor (or whatever roles people at Buzzfeed have these days) on Worth It. The man actually making the nuggets in this video is Andrew.

That said, I think it is fun to see him (try to) make some of recipes they have encountered during the shooting of previous Worth It seasons! Last month he had a go at Vinegar Pie.

I watched it without sound on so I didn't get any verbal instructions. Is the tofu maintaining its nugget shape (before battering) because it was frozen? He doesn't add anything to hold it together, right?

I'm not a big fan of egg-replacer. For vegan battering, there is a "better batter" recipe in the book Vegan Japaneasy that uses household staples and produces better results.

Right. He he had the same concern - he was so worried he called Fred, the guy from the restaurant who gave him the recipe, to make sure he was doing it right.

My wife has a theory that garlic powder + onion powder with salt and glutamate (mushroom powder here) is THE American flavour. It's Doritos, it's ranch, it's in a lot of sausage. It has to be the powder form, in particular, not fresh garlic and onions---that's also delicious but has a different profile.

When I started adding the combo to my smoked fish brine, it certainly took it from good to amazing.

These look so good, but I cant bring myself to even attempt them because of the double freeze. I dont have time/freezer space for that shit!
