Vegan Jalapeño Poppers

Vegan Jalapeño Poppers by Pasta-based. Beautiful, bursting, crispy, jalapeño poppers stuffed with vegan ricotta and sausage crumbles sprawled out on a dark grey baking sheet and laying on top of a bright orange and yellow dish towel. Small bowl of vegan ranch with fresh dill nestled between the poppers and some more sausage crumbles scattered on the table pleasing the eyeballs.

We recently went to a vegan restaurant that has MANY mouth watering options but, as much as we wanted to, we couldn’t order everything on the menu (or could we… 😏). So, one of the many things we ordered was the vegan jalapeño poppers. Neither of us really had jalapeño poppers many times before, but it sounded damn delicious at first glance that day.

No surprise, we freakin’ loved them! They were stuffed with vegan mozzarella, vegan sausage and fire roasted in a brick oven. They were to DIE for, so we naturally wanted to make our own version of these.

Blueberry Grilled Cheese

Blueberry Grilled Cheese by Pasta-based. A grilled cheese sandwich stacked high with gooey vegan mozzarella dripping down. Extra blueberries and cherries sprinkled around. Mint leaves, too.

This tart blueberry spread is the definition of summer. Not only are there nutritious blueberries, packed with antioxidants, it’s also made with simple, healthy ingredients like cherries, mint, spinach, lemon juice and sunflower seeds. I can imagine that this light, fresh spread would go perfectly with a summery vegan cheese board and a cold glass of rosé.
