I am so excited to share this recipe with you! Indian food is my FAVORITE...I love the flavors, i love the smells, I love the variety! It bums me out when Indian restaurants don't have vegan samosas, so i thought I'd make my own version with pie crust, and baked!

Normally samosas are fried, and although they are DELICIOUS...I like baked, oil free much much more, and the pie crust gives it a wonderful flavor!

 
 

I am thinking I might make an entire pie out of this next time! What do you think?

This DELICIOUS sauce goes great as a dip, on top of vegan cheese steaks, on cold sandwiches, in salads, you name it!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time:  10 minutes
Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 large sweet potato, diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 2-3 jalapenos - minced
  • 1/4 cup almond (or other non-dairy, unflavored) milk
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 - 1 tbsp hot sauce (I like Cholula or Frank's)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions:

  • Boil sweet potatoes until it is easy to put a fork through them. Drain and let it cook once cooked.
  • While you are cooking the sweet potatoes, mince the jalapenos and put them in a small pan on medium heat until soft.
  • Put sweet potato & all ingredients except for the jalapenos into food processor (you can also use a blender). Blend until  you get the consistency you are looking for.
  • Now is the fun part - taste test! I always tend to add more seasoning along the way, but I definitely like a TON. Once you have the taste you are looking for, add the jalapenos, and SERVE!
  • I recommend making some vegan cheese steaks, using it as a dipping sauce, or mixing it into tacos! I have also put it on sandwiches - it is multi-functional!
