When they begin to char ever so slightly, they’re ready to enjoy as is or with your favorite dip!
A savory, gourmet vegan meal has never been this easy!
Amber Cardosi from A Toasted Crumb recently shared how she likes to enjoy Pure Flavor’s® Craft House Shishito Peppers in a quick and easy (and totally vegan!) Shishito Pepper Stir Fry made with cauliflower, red onion and a homemade stir fry sauce.
To make her recipe, start by whisking together soy sauce, vegetable broth, lime juice, rice vinegar, maple syrup, minced garlic, minced serrano peppers, ginger and cornstarch.
Preheat your oven or barbecue to 425°. While it’s heating up, chop your cauliflower into florets and slice the red onion into long, thick strips. Toss them both with olive oil, chipotle pepper powder, salt and pepper, and lay them out on a baking sheet. Roast them for 20 minutes.
Now you can turn your attention to preparing the Shishito Peppers. Simply drizzle with olive oil — there, your prep work is done! Turn on the broiler in your oven and add the Shishito Pepper Grill Pack to the middle rack. Quickly brush the cauliflower with your homemade stir fry sauce.
After about five to six minutes, stir the peppers and cauliflower to make sure they cook evenly. Broil for another five minutes and remove both trays. Season the shishitos with a pinch of flaky sea salt and serve your stir fry on a bed of rice.
