Baked Vegan Jalapeno Poppers for Superbowl. Vegan Recipe

Vegan Baked Jalapeno Poppers ! Vegan Richa

I made these poppers with the leftover Jalapeno Popper dip, on Saturday for the Seahawks game! I made the dip last Monday,and we could not finish it. So I froze the leftover dip and it freezes just fine. Thawed it up and made some crisp baked vegan Jalapeno poppers! You asked for these on my Instagram and here they are. Are you ready for the playoffs! #superbowl #gameday #gohawks

On another note, I am looking for Recipe testers you all.
- got enough recipe testers and also signed a contract for a book! keep an eye out in 2015 for a fantastic book by yours truly. 

Add daiya or home made mozzarella on top of the stuffed dip, then bread and bake.

Baked Jalapeno Poppers

Allergen Information: Free of Dairy, egg, corn, soy, yeast. Can be made gluten-free

Ingredients: Makes 10-15
Jalapenos – slit and seeds and pith removed

My Jalapeno Havarti Popper dip or just the cream cheese Jalapeno dip or use other vegan cream cheese.

Breading Milk Mix:
1/2 cup almond milk or other non dairy milk
1 Tablespoon flaxmeal
2 Tablespoon flour (wheat, unbleached white or spelt or other gf flour)
1/8 tsp salt or to taste
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Bread Crumb mixture:

1/2 – 3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp salt 
1-2 tsps extra virgin olive oil (optional)


Prep the Jalapenos. (Use gloves if you are not sure about the spicyness. The seeds and pith can sometimes give a really bad spice burn). Remove the pith and seeds as much as possible. 
Fill the jalapenos up with chilled cream cheese popper dip. (the chilled dip is quite thick). 
Set up the breading area. Mix the milk with the spices, flaxmeal and flour in a deep down and keep ready. 
Mix up the bread crumbs with paprika and salt and optionally add a tsp of evoo and mix them up. 
Dip Jalapenos with filled side up into the milk mixture(do not roll, just submerge them and lift out). Then immediately dip into the breadcrumb mixture. Use a spoon to pour some extra breadcrumbs on top and press. Place the pepper on parchment lined sheet. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until golden to your preference. 

Notes: If you would like crispier and more coated poppers then add the flour breading step as well. Dip in milk mixture, then dip in 2 Tbsp flour + 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic powder mixture, then into breadcrumbs and bake. 

Use brown rice flour + cornmeal or gf breadcrumbs for a gluten-free version. 
Add some daiya or home made  home-made mozzarella coconut milk based or cashew mozza or cheddar on top of the stuffed peppers and then coat in breadcrumbs and bake for a melty popper.

    Damn these look good Richa! I’ve never had a jalapeno popper before, which is crazy because they’re pretty much the perfect thing ever. I just finished testing for another book and was going to take a break but now you’re seriously tempting me to submit ;)

    Wow, if this is always what vegan food looks like, then I’m on! I love the idea. Speaking of vegan, I recommend Pizza Paradiso Orlando’s veggie pizza, really healthy and a must try! Anyways, thank for the recipe.. I learned a lot.

    LOVE poppers! Yum, yum, yum. I am so sad that I missed the call for testers! I love your blog and your recipes. Many of your recipes have become staples in my household, all the omnivores love your recipes as much as I do! Maybe next time…

  6. says you can self-published your book and they charge only for a sample copy (depends on the type of book, color or B&W) but in general it is inexpensive to use – however, you have to do the marketing yourself – my self-published book (B&W) cost me about $10.00 – you buy additional copies when you sell them- they sell your book on their website too and they sell a marketing package – I haven’t used their services for marketing – basically they are a printing company at reasonable prices…
