Vegan Planet: Tapenade-Stuffed Peppadews and Cookbook Giveaway

Tapenade-Stuffed Peppadews and Cookbook Giveaway

I have a super-busy today today. For one thing, today I’m a guest on the Jazzy Vegetarian radio program. Tune in today at 1:15 Eastern time for some of my favorite party planning tips and the recipe for Sherried Mushrooms from Party Vegan.

No matter how busy, there’s always time to make an easy appetizer that can be assembled in seconds, right? Take these Tapenade-Stuffed Peppadews, for example. If you enjoy surprising your taste buds with several flavors at once, you just might like these little peppadew chiles stuffed with tapenade. I happened to have a little tapenade leftover from Halloween and a few of those adorable peppadews in the fridge, so what else could I do but stuff the tapenade into the peppadews?

In addition to being cute as a button, these zesty little appetizers pack a flavor wallop. The burst of flavors you get include sweet-spicy, salty, and just plain delicious. If you’re not a fan of peppadews or tapenade, then you can cherry tomatoes and stuff them with something else — but then you'll have to call them something other than "Tapenade-Stuffed Peppadews."

Vegan Mofo Giveaway #1:
Today is the first of a series of my Vegan MoFo Giveaways. To be automatically entered in next week’s drawing for a copy of my book, Vegan on the Cheap, just leave a comment at the end of this post that answers this question: What kind of stuffing would you put in a peppadew (or cherry tomato)?
A winner will be chosen at random (using generator) and announced on Tuesday, November 9.

Good luck in the contest!

I'd make a stuffing using seitan sausages. Mmmm...
mixture of tofu, spinach,cashews, onions, garlic and spices.

Oh a stuffing with mushrooms and fresh basil. Basil & tomatoes, yum!
Hmm tough question (for me at least) but I think I'd use barely and maybe some carrots. I'd have to think about spices though.
Artichoke and cashew ricotta
Something with nuts. Ground up almonds, maybe with lemon and basil.
I think a roasted red pepper hummus would be delicious in a peppadew!
It might be tasty with some sort of nutty, spiced couscous salad. Yeah, I'll have to try that.
cashew cream or vegan cream cheese is delish. any suggestions on where to buy peppadews? i saw them in texas in a jar but never see them here in florida. should have bought more!

Hmm, I think a mixture of pine nuts, basil, spinach and garlic sounds delicious!
I think Toffuti cream cheese, sauteed spinach and chopped walnuts sounds yummy!
Sweetpea, I get my peppadews from the olive bar at the Safeway in Warrenton, Virginia. (I can't find them in jars around here!)
I'm not the most original, but I can't get olive tapenade out of my head, because it sounds so delicious, so this is what I'm going with

I would do cherry toms, I think, and for some reason, I think that very finely diced cucumbers with a little oil, vinegar, and spicy mustard sounds really good.
Kale and white beans!
Some kinda cashew goat cheese equivalent kinda thing. Fresh herbs, etc. yumz.
Cashew cheese with fresh basil, drizzle of olive oil, fresh cracked pepper and pink Himalayan sea salt. mmm I am salivating just thinking about it!!!
Caramelized Onions, basilic and vegan cheese!
These sound incredible!

For my filling, I'd use guacamole, because avocado is always right.
Such a stuffing would definitely have to have garlic, basil, mushrooms and a boca crumble. Yum!
Basil leaf, tofu ricotta, drizzled with balsamic reduction. Bite-size Caprese salad!!!
Some cooked marinated tofu 'feta' and a mixture of roasted nuts.
hmm i would stuff it with a mix of tempeh bacon bits and avocado and top it off with buttery bread crumbs for a sorta blt +a spin on stuffed tomatoes
Yours sound yummy! I'd probably make some spiced-up version of tofu ricotta and cut-up olives (if using tomatoes).
I was thinking something with rice and a cheese alternative.
Herbed vegan cream cheese with olives
I'd stuff cherry tomatoes with a green pea pesto with lemon zest.

A pistou!
Hummus sounds good to me!
I'd probably stuff it with some smooth roasted red pepper hummus. Anything bigger than a spread would probably be to had to stuff them with
I have made mock egg salad before and stuffed it into the cherry tomatoes - it is so good!
I'd use the stuffing I recently made for zucchini boats: shredded bleu-cheese flavor Scheese mixed with corn and cooked quinoa. So good!
I think olive tapenade sounds perfect, with sundried tomatoes for extra tomato goodness!
I'd stuff 'em with some good ole' fashioned quinoa.
Years ago I made pesto stuffed grape tomatoes--it was awesome. I really want to make that again.
Honestly, I wouldn't stuff my cherry tomatoes with anything at all. I love them raw - just like nature's candy, when they are sweet enough!

Chickpea salad! Or maybe basil and cashew ricotta.

Mmm I love peppedews! I eat them plain often, but I'd be inclined to stuff them with some sort of quinoa salad, one that would have to include capers

Definitely something basil based, like a basil cashew ricotta (especially with ripe summer tomatoes where I wouldn't want anything too overpowering).
Hmmm, something with cashew butter - I am so hooked on it right now!
Black olives, spinach, quinoa, balsamic vinegar, and a little bit of nooch and basil. Mmm.
Caramelized onions, mashed potatoes and mushrooms. Wait..will all of that fit? :D
Reading these comments has made me soooo hungry.

I'm going to say caramelized shallots with cilantro and chopped almonds.
For stuffing a cherry tomato, I'd do a deviled "egg" type mixture out of white beans.
Spicy quinoa.
Quinoa! I think it would be great (with some other seasonings, of course).

I'd keep it simple with quinoa, parsley and chopped scallion.
Looks great! Hmmm...I rarely stuff anything and I don't think I've had a peppadew. How about tempeh sausage or tofu feta? You are picking the winner on my bday. Maybe that will bring me luck. :-)

cilantro & avocado bits!
Maybe some herbed quinoa mixture
I am poor and NEED your cookbook, lol. The waiting list at the library is soooooooo long and I have been waiting since it came out!

Perhaps leftover "sleek" - kale, onion, bulgur wheat, black-eyed peas?
I stuff cherry tomatoes with the insides of the tomatoes, some vegan cream cheese, and some tomato juice added a little at a time in a blender until it reaches a creamy consistency. Then I pipe it in. So cute!
vegan cream cheese. Even plain would be good, but with some herbs it would be even better....and lots of cracked pepper!
