Ingredients
 10 jalapeño peppers, cut in half length-wise, seeds and ribs removed
 ½ cup all-purpose flour
 1 ¾ cups panko breadcrumbs
 oil for frying
Cashew Cream Filling
 1 ½ cups cashews, soaked
 ½ cup lemon juice
 6 tbsp maple syrup
 ¼ cup nutritional yeast
 ½ tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
 ½ tbsp salt
 ½ tbsp onion powder
 ½ tbsp garlic powder
Batter
 1 cup all-purpose flour
 2 tsp garlic powder
 2 tsp onion powder
 2 tsp salt
 2 tsp sugar
 1 tsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp white pepper
 1 ¼ cups water
Directions
1

Cut jalapeño peppers in half length-wise, then boil them in a medium saucepan for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the jalapeños, and immediately put them in an ice-water bath to stop them from cooking further.

2

Your cashews should be soaked in water for 2 hours in advance, unless you have a high-speed blender. Add soaked cashews, lemon juice, maple syrup, nutritional yeast, low-sodium soy sauce, 1/2 tbsp. salt, 1/2 tbsp. onion powder, and 1/2 tbsp. garlic powder to a blender and blend until smooth (2-4 minutes, depending on your blender).

3

Fill each jalapeño half with lemon cashew cream. The cream should be piled higher than the jalapeño itself, to give the poppers a rounded shape. Transfer the jalapeño halves to a baking tray, and place in the freezer to allow the cream to firm slightly, about 10-15 minutes.

4

While the jalapeños are in the freezer, prepare the coating batter. In a medium mixing bowl, add 1 cup flour, 2 tsp. garlic powder, 2 tsp. onion powder, 2 tsp. salt, sugar, baking powder, and white pepper, and mix. Then add water and mix well until there are no lumps remaining. Separately, on a small plate, add 1/4 cup flour.

5

Remove jalapeños from the freezer. Dip one jalapeño in the batter, using a spoon to coat the entire pepper, except for the stem. Then, using the stem to hold the pepper, pull the jalapeño out and allow any excess batter to drip off. Then place the pepper on the plate with flour, and turn the pepper to ensure it's entirely coated. You can use a separate spoon to add flour to places that get missed. Then, place the coated jalapeño on a wire rack to dry. Repeat with the remaining peppers, adding more flour to the plate as needed.

6

After the jalapeños' first coat of batter has set (around 20 minutes), you can apply the outer coat. Remove the plate of flour, and prepare a second plate with 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs. Dip a jalapeño in the batter and coat it just as you did in the previous step. Then place the pepper on the plate of breadcrumbs and turn to coat, using a spoon to fill in empty spots as needed. Return the pepper to the wire rack to dry, and repeat with the remaining jalapeños, adding more breadcrumbs to the plate as needed.

7

In a large saute pan, heat about 1 inch of oil over medium heat, until it's about 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When the oil is ready, it should ripple, and will crackle if a drop of water is tossed into it.

8

When the oil is ready, use a metal spatula to add each jalapeño popper to the pan, leaving some space between each popper. Allow the poppers to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the breading is golden brown, then turn the poppers to cook the other side another 2-3 minutes. Use the spatula to remove the poppers from the oil and place on paper towels to drain. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
