Red Pepper Poppers

Recently, I hosted a raw food pot luck at my home. Talking to everyone, at all levels of involvement with raw food was interesting and enlightening. It is always fun to see what raw food dishes people show up with. One couple brought some jalapeno poppers, made the raw food way. They were very good. I was inspired to take a shot at it and see what I could come up with.




Instead of using green jalapeno’s, I opted for small red cayenne peppers, for the color and the ripeness. The heat is about the same. The filling is made from pine nuts, cashews and a few other ingredients. Eggplant “bacon” tops completes the bite size morsels. There are quite a few recipes out there for eggplant “bacon”. This one was inspired by a trip to the spice shop and a desire to make it quick and easy. It turned out great. I had to fight my daughter to keep enough for the photos!

    Thank you for your wonderful recipes! I am going to try to make the bacon tonight for the BLT recipe you have on your site. Could you please let me know how to store the bacon after it’s dehydrated, and how long it should last? Thanks!

    Eggplant makes me inflamed; can I use zucchini or other veggies instead?
