Jalapeno Hush Puppies

Hey all! Ok, it’s been forever since I posted. But I’m back, and ready to feed you.
My absolute favorite restaurant in New York City has to be Dirt Candy. They’re a vegetarian restaurant and can make all of their dishes vegan. They’re uber tiny and you have to make reservations approximately forever in advance, but it’s always worth it.
There’s no way you can start a meal there without their jalapeno hush puppies. Fluffy, fried deliciousness. With the most amazing maple butter you’ve ever tasted. Here’s my dad enjoying them the last time he was in town. As a matter of fact, we got two orders of them. Because, why not?
Anyway, this year Dirt Candy chef Amanda Cohen released a cookbook! It’s super fun because it’s also part graphic novel. I highly recommend it!
I adapted her recipe a little bit and now make the jalapeno hush puppies at home. Delicious and a big hit with guests! Make, and enjoy!
