Vegan MoFo Iron Chef Challenge
Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Since I am wrapping up my theme for this Vegan MoFo, I thought I’d take the opportunity to participate in the third Vegan MoFo Iron Chef Challenge. They raised the bar with this challenge by having three secret ingredients – they were: sunflower seeds, grapes, and hot peppers. I immediately knew what I wanted to make when I read the ingredients, and I’m happy to report that you can add this recipe to your appetizer rotation for your next vegan party!
These three ingredients served as the base for [drumroll please..]: Sunflower Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers with Grape Dipping Sauce.
I used two different types of hot peppers for this dish, jalapenos and yellow chili peppers. If you want to have an array of different heat levels, then I definitely suggest getting a few different varieties of chilis. The jalapenos had quite a bit of heat but the yellow chilis were much milder, so even the husband [who is not much for spicy things] finished them off.
When I finished the sauce, I drizzled a bit of it over each popper, but you could simply leave it as a dipping sauce – if you are not serving them right away I would recommend leaving the drizzle off. These are very quick and easy to put together and they make a great appetizer for any dinner party or holiday party.
See you all tomorrow with some party tips!
