Last Saturday, my family and I went to a Dodgers vs Giants game! My dad is a huge Dodgers fan so we knew this would be the perfect Father’s Day gift for him. The last time I went to Dodgers Stadium, was 5 years ago so their food menu has changed. They offer vegan friendly foods like veggie burgers, hummus and veggie dogs but the one food item I was craving was nachos. I obviously couldn’t have it so I waited till I got home to make my very own Vegan Nachos!
You Will Need:
- Daiya Cheddar Shreds
- Garden of Eatin Chia Seed Corn Tortilla Chips
- 1 Ripe avocado
- 1 Tomato
- Black beans
- Cayenne pepper
Step 1: Microwaveable bowl + Chips
Get a handful of chips and place it in a microwaveable friendly bowl
Step 2: Orange is the new Black Beans
One of my sources of protein is black beans. You can use whatever type of bean you want but I like black beans for this recipe. Open the can, drain the beans, rinse it under some water and scatter it on top.
Step 3: Vegan Cheese that sh*t
I’ve talked about this brand quite a lot so I won’t go into details why I picked this vegan cheese. Grab a handful of vegan cheese and place it on top. If it doesn’t look nice, it’s ok… it’s nachos
Step 4: Microwave
With your microwaveable bowl filled with chips, black beans and vegan cheese, put it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Make sure you don’t burn your vegan cheese!
Step 5: Dice
While that’s in the microwave, dice your avocado and tomato. I used the entire tomato, but for the avocado I only used a half. If your avocado is super soft, make it into guacamole!
Step 6: Avocado + Tomato + bowl of awesome=
Now that your cheese is melted, your going to put your diced tomato and avocado on top. If you want a kick of spice in your nachos, add some cayenne pepper on top! Don’t add too much though, cayenne pepper is hot
Step 7: EAT!
And you’re done! Super easy right? I wouldn’t say this is healthy, but it’s a great alternative if you’re vegan. If you want to add more, I would add some olives, vegan sour cream and green onions to this. I obviously wasn’t well prepared but this still taste amazing!
