Vegan Gluten Free Jalapeno Poppers


Fresh Jalapeno chillies
Tofutti better than cream cheese
Besan/chickpea  flour
White pepper/Chilli powder
Slit fresh jalapeno peppers down the side
Stuff the pepper with tofutti better than cream cheese (you can add other flavours to the cream cheese eg.  dairy cheese; herbs, bacon, etc)
Make a thick paste with the besan flour. If the paste is too thin, it won’t coat the glossy chilli!
Add salt and pepper or a pinch of chilli powder to the paste.
Dip stuffed jalapenos into batter, coat well and then deep fry.
Nb. I have tried using soy milk and almond meal to coat the peppers…it can be done but it’s a bit tricky! It’s an option if you don’t enjoy the taste of besan flour.
