Ingredients

Jalapeno Poppers

  • 5 medium-large jalapenos (cut in half lengthwise with seeds removed)
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed (+⅓ cup water to make flax eggs)
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 Tbsp Vegan mayonnaise (we used "Best Foods" brand)
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup flour (we used whole wheat, but you can use whatever kind you prefer)
  • cups bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp paprika

Blackberry Dipping Sauce

Instructions

Preparation

  • In a small-medium bowl combine 2 Tbsp ground flax with ⅓ cup water. Stir it briefly and set it aside.
  • Slice jalapenos in half lengthwise and spoon out the seeds.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a blender or food processor add and mix the following until creamy: 1/3 cup chickpeas (from a can), 1 avocado, 2 Tbsp vegan mayo, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, & 1/4 tsp salt. Scoop into a 2nd medium-sized bowl and set aside.
  • Put ½ cup of flour into a 3rd medium-sized bowl.
  • Put 1½ cups of bread crumbs into a 4th medium-sized bowl. Stir in 1 tsp paprika, and salt & pepper to taste.

Putting The Poppers Together

  • Dip jalapenos into the avocado sauce and make sure the center is filled fully. If they're coated all the way around the flour will stick well in the next step.
  • Coat jalapenos with the flour.
  • Coat jalapenos with the flax eggs.
  • Coat jalapenos with the bread crumbs.
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes.

Blackberry Dipping Sauce

  • While the poppers are in the oven you can make the blackberry sauce. In a small pot combine ½ cup blackberries, 1 cup water, 1 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp soy sauce, and ½ tsp lemon juice. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Smash the blackberries down.
  • Add in ½ tsp of corn starch and stir well and cook for another 2 minutes until it thickens a bit.
