You’ve asked for more vegan and vegetarian recipes so here they are. This time we’ve partnered with Fry’s for some dinner inspiration.
Today we are making…. Cheesy vegan nachos topped with nuggets and salsa
Crunchy nachos topped with a warm creamy vegan cheese sauce, crunchy Fry’s Rice Protein and Chia Nuggets and fresh avocado, onions and chili.
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Prep time: 20 minutes
240 g Fry’s Rice Protein and Chia Nuggets
½ (80 g) red onion, finely chopped
1 (300 g) large avocado, diced
2 Tbsp (30 ml) lime juice
1 (4 g) green chilli, thinly sliced
Vegan Cheese Sauce
2 Tbsp (30 ml) coconut oil
2 tsp (10 ml) cornflour
½ cup (125 ml) almond milk
½ cup (125 ml) coconut cream
1 Tbsp (15 ml / 5 g) nutritional yeast
75 g vegan cheddar-flavoured cheese, grated
pinch ground turmeric
salt and pepper
200 g corn chips
8 lime wedges
Pre heat the oven to 180 °C. Arrange the nuggets on a lined tray and bake until crispy, about 15 minutes. Cut into bite-size chunks. Stir the onion, avocado, lime juice and chilli together and season it to taste. Refrigerate until needed.
Vegan Cheese Sauce
Heat the coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat until melted; add the cornflour and cook for 30 seconds. Whisk in the almond milk and coconut cream and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat, whisk in the nutritional yeast, grated vegan cheese and turmeric. Whisk until all of the cheese has melted. Return it to low heat, if necessary. Season to taste and keep warm.
Drizzle the warm cheese sauce over each portion of nachos. Scatter some of the Fry’s Rice Protein and Chia Nugget pieces on top and finish it off with a portion of salsa. Serve the nachos with the lime wedges on the side.
TIP: Replace the almond milk with your preferred plant based milk such as rice milk, soy milk or coconut milk.
TIP: Cheddar-flavoured and mozzarella-flavoured vegan cheese is available at selected supermarkets and health stores. (Pick n Pay and Checkers)
TIP: The turmeric is not essential but does add a great yellow colour to the sauce. When left out, the flavour will not be affected but the colour of the sauce will just be more pale in colour.
