Smokey Roasted Yellow Pepper Sauce

Inspiration: Sauce for The best crab cakes ever.

Easy and quick to make and makes any plate look beautiful!  Served here with Crispy Vegan "Meatballs".

Crispy Vegan Meatballs with Smokey Roasted Yellow Pepper Sauce

Inspiration:  My mom's Sweet and Sour Meatballs (always a huge hit)!

These are great as a bite on their own, with your choice of sauce or with this smokey roasted yellow pepper sauce.    Keep in mind that they are more fragile than regular meatballs as they do not benefit from the binding of the cooked meat and eggs.  Handle them delicately.  You will be surprised at how truly delicious they are.  They can also be made ahead of time and frozen.  Gently reheat thawed "meatballs" in a 350°F (175°C) oven when you are ready to serve them.

Garnish with some diced lebanese pickled radish for colour and micro greens - this makes a delicious and impressive appetizer.
