From the Recipe Box: Vegetarian nachos.

My husband is a pescatarian; which means he eats fish, seafood, and dairy, just not red or white meat. Needless to say, there’s no hamburger on his nachos. There are a lot of recipes out there for vegetarian nachos, unfortunately for someone like myself who can’t eat spicy foods, half the ingredients in these recipes would leave me with stomach problems for the rest of the day.

I researched several vegitarian and vegan recipes and found that not only did quite a few of them have spicy ingredients, but several included non-meat meat (vegan meat substitute), and served hot, so I was really surprised when Hubby gave me a plate that was vegan and cold.

Yes, cold. Nothing hot on it. Great for hot summer days, and it’s just as good as regular nachos. Instead of having melted cheese hold everything together, you have the salsa, sour cream, or guacamole. Instead of melted cheese sauce, he had chunks of cheese spread across, and instead of black beans, chick peas or lentils, he put brown beans.

Honestly, it was so good!

Now, let’s talk chips. Sure, you can go with regular nacho chips, but next time try ones with added flavour. Hubby found lime flavoured chips and they add a bit of tang to the meal. Also, if you don’t like store bought chips, why not make your own? I found a great recipe for making nacho chips and all it requires is tortia bread, a deep fryer (or air fryer), and a pizza cutter. I have yet to try this out, but they sound yummy!

Now that Hubby has made them, I want to experiment and see what I can add. I’m thinking avocado chunks, pineapple, and olive slices. Have you tried veggie nachos? What were your toppings? I need some ideas!
