Buffalo Jackfruit Bites
Fingers crossed for a snow day tomorrow here in St. Louis! The kids and I would love a day off! We are all counting down the days until winter break! Meanwhile, I’ve been thinking about appetizers for Christmas parties. This one is a winner! It’s buffalo chicken dip with out the chicken and without the dip. It’s ooey and gooey and tastes incredible in these little egg roll wraps. It’s almost like having the chip around the dip. Less work, right? If you’d prefer to just eat it with tortilla chips, there would be nothing wrong with that either! Anyone else hoping for a snow day tomorrow?
Buffalo Chickpea Bites
Jackfruit Buffalo Chickpea dip wrapped in a wonton and baked to perfection!
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/2 Cup Cashews
- 1 Cup Chickpeas drained
- 1 can Jackfruit, green in Brine
- 1 1/2 Cups Water
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 3 Tbsp Tapioca Starch
- 1/2 Cup Franks Red Hot Original Flavor less if you don't like spice as much!
- Vegan Eggroll wraps.
Preheat Oven to 400° and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Steam Jackfruit until soft (about 15 minutes).
Place all ingredients except the olive oil, jackfruit and eggroll wraps in a blender. If you do not have a high speed blender, soak cashews.
Transfer mixture to medium sauce pan. Cook over medium to high heat. Mixture will be very thin at first. As it cooks it will begin to thicken. Stir constantly. Mixture will start to become thick and kind of gooey. Suddenly, it will be smooth and stretchy like cheese.
Once Jackfruit is soft, place it on a plate and use the back of a fork to break it up. Put Jackfruit in chickpea mixture. Let Cool.
Lay egg roll long ways. Place a heaping Tbsp of the chickpea dip at the top half of the egg roll. Fold bottom half of egg roll up in half. Take top left corner and fold to center. Take top right corner and fold in center to form a triangle.
Spray or brush olive oil onto either side of the wrapped item.
Cook for 20 minutes, flipping midway.
- If you'd prefer to to stop at making the dip, it is amazing with tortilla chips as well!
- You can make the dip ahead of time and keep in the fridge until you are ready to wrap the bites.
