Healthy Plant-Based Nachos are the ultimate! They will satisfy your snack food craving without leaving you looking for a pillow and a blanket. Check out how to make vegan nachos with just 10 minutes of prep time.
Let the Games Begin
I have been receiving a lot of requests for easy-and-delicious-but-still-healthy snacks or “party” food. And I figured that football season would be a great time to debut this recipe.
These nachos taste just like the decadent treat from your favorite Mexican restaurant.
How to Make Vegan Nachos
I used cheddar and pepperjack vegan cheeses, but you can use any plant-based cheese that melts and tastes like a dairy-based cheese.
The corn chips I replaced with Plentils (Enjoy Life’s brand for a lentil chip. . . and this is not a sponsored post!) Lentil chips are great because they bring a little more protein to the table than corn chips, plus the lentil chips contain no saturated fat.
Add in the black beans for another heavy hit of protein and all of the veggies for, well . . . all that veggies bring: vitamins A and C, iron, phytonutrients, and the list goes on!
Healthy Plant-based Nachos
All of these nutrients combined with dairy and gluten-free nachos make both your palate and your body very happy!
An added benefit to this dish is that it is so easy to prepare it can be done any time for any occasion. I made this as an afternoon snack yesterday just because it sounded so good. And I knew it would be done in under 30 minutes.
Don’t wait for the Superbowl for this one. Enjoy it now!!
Customizing Your Vegan and Gluten-free Nachos
Customize these nachos to your special preferences. If you like it spicier, add more jalapeno. Prefer a milder option, omit the jalapeno.
If you like them to blow your mind, add a Habanero.
If cheese is your thing, pile up the vegan cheese.
Add corn, avocado, cilantro, scallions! It’s so flexible you can always change it based on the mood of the day. Now that’s my kind of recipe! Enjoy!!
