Vegan & gluten free nachos. My final recipe in my week long vegan Super Bowl party food fest. I wanted to share several plant-based football watching foods that were easy to prepare for hosting or taking to a party. This is quintessential football food for sure.
This recipe is super flexible, allowing you to add or remove whatever you have on hand or prefer. Add beans in lieu of the meatless crumbles, mix up the vegan cheese, add pickled jalapeños for extra spice. Also top with salsa, hot sauce or guac for extra food fun. The other wonderful thing about this recipe is that you can make a small or large tray depending on the amount of food you need. You simply cannot go wrong with this dish.
My recipe gives you what I used along with substitution ideas. I hope you enjoy!
Ingredients: (For one small tray of nachos,)
One bag of tortilla chips (I prefer blue corn with flax/chia seeds)
1/2 bell pepper, chopped and seeded
3 spring onions, diced
1/4 red onion, diced
1 cup of meatless crumbles, cooked
1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 jalapeño, chopped
8 olives, sliced
3 slices of vegan cheese slices or 1/2 cup of shreds
Hot sauces – as much or as little as you like.
1 cup of chickpeas, black or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup of pickled jalapeños
1/2 cup of pineapple chunks
Cook your beefy crumbles in a fry pan with a drizzle of oil. Sauté till warmed through.
On a baking sheet – spread tortilla chips in an even layer covering the pan.
Then sprinkle your crumbles atop of the chips.
Then add your veggies. Chop your vegan cheese and then add to the top of the veggies. The cheese will melt and form a shell over the veggies holding them on to the chips when you eat.
Spread your cheese throughout.
Then turn your broiler on high and place your baking sheet in the oven. Broil for 2-3 minutes then rotate the pan. Keeping a watchful eye, remove when the cheese is melted.
Top with hot sauce, guac or salsa. I added some dashes of hot sauce. Serve and enjoy!
