Ingredients

  • 32 ounces sweet mini peppers, they come in a clear bag
  • 15 ounces chickpeas, from a can, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup homemade almond mayonnaise (get the link to the recipe in the instructions below) If you choose to use store-bought dairy-free mayonnaise only use 3 tablespoons to start with.
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  • Cut the stem end off of the peppers. Slice lengthwise. Remove any seeds that are inside. Set aside.
  • Here is the recipe for Homemade Almond Mayonnaise.  It is really flavorful too.
  • Place all of the remaining ingredients in a food processor. Pulse four or five times. The chickpeas should be chunky.
  • Remove the blade and stir to make sure the mixture is blended well.
  • Stuff each pepper half with about 2 tablespoons of the chickpea mixture.
  • Set on a plate to serve. You may cover them with plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

Notes

IT FREEZING:
The chickpea stuffing will freeze up to three months in a rigid sided container.
The sweet mild peppers need to be fresh from the grocery store.
TO SERVE AFTER FREEZING:
Defrost the stuffing, overnight in the refrigerator.
Stuff the peppers as described above.
