Smoky Sliders Got Soul


1 8oz pouch of original daring pieces 
1/2 small head green cabbage, tough outer leaves removed
2 scallions, thinly sliced
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar, divided
3 tsp agave nectar, divided
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1 chipotle pepper (from a small can of chipotles in adobo sauce)
1 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1 tbsp vegan butter
6 slider buns, halved
Salt & pepper



  1. Prepare slaw. Slice cabbage in half along the core. Carefully remove the cores and slice into thin ribbons. Add to a large mixing bowl with scallions, 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 1/2 tsp agave, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper. Toss to combine. Let rest at room temperature.daring smoky sliders step 1

  2. Place a saucepan over medium-high heat and add vegetable oil. When hot, add red onion and a pinch of salt and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the onion is translucent and just browning at the edges. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute more. Add ketchup, water, chipotle pepper, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 1/2 tsp agave, dry mustard, and a large pinch of black pepper. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.

  3. Carefully pour the sauce mixture into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth, about 30 to 60 seconds. Pour the sauce back into your saucepan. Add daring pieces, bring mixture to a simmer, cover, and cook for 7 to 9 minutes or until the pieces are heated through and shred easily with a fork. Remove from heat.

  6. To assemble daring sliders, sandwich a heaping spoonful of pulled daring and vinegary slaw in between each toasted bun. Serve hot (with plenty of napkins).
