  • For the hot sauce: Remove pepper tips, chop the peppers and add to a pan with the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool then blitz into a sauce. If you have a ninja blended start with pulse 4-5 times, then blend on low for 15 seconds and on high for 3-4 sessions or until you can no longer spot seeds or pepper bits.
  • For the buffalo sauce: In a pan, Measure the corn starch, stir in the water a bit at a time, then stir in the hot sauce and the remaining spices. Bring to a boil and allow the sauce to thicken slightly for a minute or so. Beware of the hot fumes.
  • Deep fry, oven bake, or air fry the vegan nuggets according to your taste. If using store-bought nuggets follow the instructions on the back of the box; remember to cook for half the time if you want to bake them in the air fryer, and flip them halfway through.

  • Whilst hot, toss the vegan nuggets into the sauce and serve with your favorite dips and some refreshing celery sticks.
