I decided to make nachos for lunch today after my best friend recommended them, and I when I went out to get the ingredients it started really heavily snowing! What. The. Fuck. It hasn’t stuck because it was raining last night, but it’s April! This shouldn’t be happening, I’ve been looking forward to warm weather!
Anyway… These nachos taste amazing, and are pretty versatile, the recipe I’ll write down is just what I fancied eating today, but you can pretty much use whatever you want, like vegetarian meat substitutes (eg. Quorn mince), red onions, black beans instead of kidney beans… As long as you have crispy tortillas as the base, it’s pretty much guaranteed to taste good :)
Update on my life: I’m going to visit my best friend from university in Birmingham for a couple of days, then I have work experience at a magazine all of next week, then I’m going straight back to uni on Monday, so I might not be posting much for a while, I hope you don’t mind! I have to commute into central London to do my work experience as well, so I don’t think I’m going to have time to cook much exciting food… But I’m definitely thinking about doing an ’embarrassing revision snacks’ post when I go back to university, I swear, I must get through a kilo of chocolate a week during exam time!
For the Nachos
Two large flour tortillas
Half a tin of kidney beans
Two chopped spring onions
Half/quarter of an avocado
One large tomato
Half a lime
For the vegan cheese sauce
200ml of unsweetened, unflavoured almond milk
5 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
One tablespoon of vegan margarine
One tablespoon of plain flour
A pinch each of garlic powder, salt and pepper
- To make the “cheese”, melt the margarine. Whisk together the flour and milk, then add it, along with the nutritional yeast to the margarine. Add the seasonings and whisk until it thickens up for five minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Cut the tortillas into triangles and bake for a few minutes until crispy.
- Layer all the ingredients up (mash the avocado and mix with a little lime before you put it on top) and enjoy!
