    Blistered Shishito Peppers

    These Blistered Shishito Peppers are our go-to snack these days when we are wanting a bit of kick and saltiness. Almost reminding me of a good bowl of popcorn or edamame, these shishitos deliver a mild spicy, salty punch and can be used as a quick snack or incorporated into your main dish.

I LOVE anything whipped, and have been known to eat almost an entire container of whipped cream, leaving me feeling bloated and albeit full. So, I’ve had to purposely NOT purchase it. It’s just too good and I can’t be stopped. Cravings persisted and I wanted to enjoy a healthier version – one that I felt good about devouring. In walks Dairy Free Coconut Milk! Praise. I use Whole Foods 365 Organic Coconut Milk (full fat)…
