Vegan Party Snacks Made In Acapulco Mexico
There were things I used to love when I wasn't vegan. I thought I may have to give them up.
Today I made the vegan versions of them.
Buffalo wings super hot used to be a favorite of mine. My friends and I when living in Hamilton Ontario Canada, used to drive an hour to cross the border to Niagara Falls New York to go to our favorite wing place. I don't remember the name, but they were famous for their buffalo wings.
I would get them super hot. Suicide. But now I don't care to eat animals so I made the vegan wing substitute. Cauliflower wings.
The sauce was made with smoked red peppers. They were dry but I boiled them and then blended them with garlic vinegar lime juice and my go to sweetener, which is raisins.
The cauliflower was sauteed in oil even though I usually don't use much oil, I decided I just will. What are you going to do about it?
They were seared until golden then tossed in the sauce.
Another snack I used to absolutely love was jalapeño poppers. Who doesn't love them?
I made a vegan version by searing the peppers in a little oil then stuffing them with onion, garlic, red pepper, which was mixed with tamale flour. Just enough flour to make them into a paste.
After I steamed the stuffed peppers. When they are properly cooked the stuffing will be firm.
Plantains have been my new thing here in Mexico. I didn't give them enough attention before so now that they are all over the place, I am just loving them.
I made a salt and pepper plantain mash along with a carrot, zucchini salad topped with avocado tomato salsa.
The plantain mash and the jalapeños were topped with a dollop of vegan cream sauce made with sunflower seeds with are less expensive than other nuts here in Mexico. I added lime juice salt , pepper, water and blended it in my magic bullet which is really magic to me.
