The Recipe How-To
Now that we’ve gone through the ingredients, let’s get to the fun part – making our Bloomin’ Vegan Pull Apart Pretzel Crisps Recipe!
Step 1: Prepare the pretzel crisps
The first thing we need to do is prepare our pretzel crisps. You can either use 20 Original Pretzel Crisps or make homemade soft pretzels and cut them into bite-sized pieces.
Step 2: Prepare the filling
In a mixing bowl, combine 1 tablespoon whole roasted garlic cloves, 1 chopped marinated artichoke, 2 tablespoons chopped Peppadew peppers, and 2 tablespoons pesto sauce until well blended. If you have a preference for any of these ingredients, add more or less according to your taste.
Step 3: Stuff the pretzel crisps
Take each pretzel crisp and make an incision in the center, without cutting through entirely. Repeat with all the pretzel crisps. Then, fill each incision with the prepared filling mixture we created earlier.
Step 4: Add some cheese
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Arrange the filled pretzel crisps tightly in a baking dish. To sprinkle on top of the filled pretzels, shred some vegan mozzarella cheese or toppings of your preference.
Step 5: Bake until golden crisp
Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until crispy and golden brown on edges.
Serve hot and watch them disappear quickly!
Substitutions and Variations
Looking to mix things up with this bloomin’ vegan pull apart pretzel crisps recipe? There are plenty of substitutions and variations you can make to customize it to your liking. Here are some ideas:
– Cheesy Variations: For a cheesier taste, feel free to add some vegan mozzarella cheese or even a garlic cheese spread dip. You could also swap the pesto sauce for a creamy garlic sauce or use a mixture of shredded vegan cheeses instead.
– Peppadew Options: If you’re not a fan of peppadew peppers, substitute them with sliced jalapenos or banana peppers for a bit of spice. You could also skip the peppers altogether and add sun-dried tomatoes for some tanginess.
– Different Artichokes: While marinated artichokes work wonderfully in this recipe, you can also use chopped hearts of palm or even roasted eggplant for a unique twist.
– Bread Base: While pretzel crisps are perfect for this recipe, why not try making it with homemade soft pretzel bites or even savory garlic knots? This would make for an excellent vegetarian appetizer!
– Sauces Swap: For dipping sauce alternatives try Lemon hummus, chipotle dipping sauce – depending on your preference.
Don’t hesitate to get creative with your substitutions and variations. Who knows? You might just come up with a new bloomin’ vegan pull apart pretzel crisps recipe all on your own!
Serving and Pairing
Now that your Bloomin’ Vegan Pull Apart Pretzel Crisps are out of the oven and smelling delicious, it’s time to think about how you’re going to serve them. These savory bites are perfect for a variety of occasions like game nights, parties, or as a quick appetizer before dinner.
To serve, I recommend placing the pull apart pretzel crisps on a large platter with a few small bowls of marinara sauce or some homemade hummus for dipping. The tangy flavor of the peppadew peppers and marinated artichoke create a bold flavor that pairs perfectly with the creamy pesto sauce and gooey mozzarella cheese.
If you want to add some freshness to the mix, toss together a quick salad with crunchy romaine lettuce, fresh tomatoes, and sliced cucumbers drizzled with a light vinaigrette dressing. The crisp greens will balance out the savory flavors of the pull apart pretzel crisps perfectly.
Another example of pairing is enjoy your pull apart pretzel crisps alongside some vegan hot dogs or sausage for an easy and satisfying meal that you can enjoy at home on a cozy night in. For a fancier twist try pairing these bites with vegan cheeses like “garlic cheese” or “cheese bread.”
These vegan alternative can turn any event into a fun vegetarian-friendly one. So go ahead, serve up these delicious Bloomin’ Vegan Pull Apart Pretzel Crisps at your next party and watch them disappear!
