Vegan Nachos – Comfort Food You Can’t Resist

We can confirm that vegan nachos are as delicious as those made with meat! We recently had a lazy cooking day and used a vegan ‘Bolognese’ we made earlier with toppings of refried beans, guacamole, jalapeños, and a simple tomato salsa. As we used silky smooth and creamy toppings there was no need for any cheese!

Nachos are the perfect snack to serve at a party, great for an emergency lunch, or a lazy day of relaxation. It is also the ideal way to incorporate a meat free meal into your diet.

Origin of nachos

Ignacio Anaya, a Mexican chef invented this dish in 1943 in Piedras Negras, Mexico. When a group of customers arrived at the Victory Club restaurant after closing, he gathered available ingredients including corn tortilla wedges, cheese and jalapeños and prepared nachos! His dish was a success and has stayed a firm favourite on the menu.

Serve a nacho buffet

Some people like nachos with all the toppings and others prefer less, or to separate their toppings. Setting up a nacho buffet or nacho bar is the perfect way to allow guests to choose their own combinations.

Highlights of vegan nachos

Nachos are a popular snack and making a meat free version is the perfect way for everyone to enjoy! Adding only vegetable toppings such as guacamole and tomato salsa is perfect but the addition of plant-based minced is adding extra texture and flavour.
