Guilt Free Vegan Nachos

Guilt Free Vegan Nachos

 

Hello feel good vegan nachos!

I love to eat nachos. I can’t imagine a diet that didn’t involve nachos. I could and would eat them everyday if they were in front of me. However, sometimes I like to reserve my calories for beer, so I was pleased to team up with Okanagan Rawsome and create a guilt-free nacho inspired recipe that you can eat over and over (and leave you some calories to have that glass or two of beer).

Sometimes the smallest changes to a basic recipe can yield the largest results. That’s the case here with my feel good, guilt-free nachos. By subbing your standard tortillas for apple crisps, and traditional toppings for nutritional toppings (hello black beans, mango salsa and chipotle peach guacamole).

This protein packed tropical spin on nachos is enough to fuel you through a full marathon (movie or running, I’m down for both).

Sunny Sunday Spread

Sunny Sunday Spread

 

It’s officially fall y’all, and that means toasted open faced sandwiches smothered in ooey-gooey melted cheese.

Despite my Scandinavian roots and growing up on endless rye, I’m not really a “bread” eater. My husband however could easily eat a loaf a day if I didn’t interject his bread feasts with my cooking. Bread is the life of his appetite. I don’t even think he can eat a breakfast that doesn’t involve bread. So when I say, Nick we are eating bread tonight, I know I get bonus wifey points. The only thing that could make his stomach happier is if it also included pasta. I swear carbs are his food wife.
