The Easiest Loaded Vegan Nachos Recipe
Loaded Vegan Nachos are one of my go-to easy dinners because they take minimal effort, time and dishes. For this specific recipe we only need to worry about washing 1 sheet pan, 1 bowl and a few plates! You’ll also love how easy they are to modify and adjust to your taste.
Enjoy these nachos while watching your favorite TV show or on movie night. They are the perfect comfort food because they are also nutrient-dense and protein-packed!
Tips & Substitutes:
There are two methods of cooking the ground tofu; oven and stove top. I recommend using the oven to achieve a better texture for your tofu, it’s a bit chewier/meatier.
Baked tofu on left and sautéed tofu on the right:
As you can see the left tofu has a more meaty texture and is less “crumbly”. The tofu on the right is softer and has a close texture to scrambled eggs. Both are delicious tasting because they are made with the same ingredients/seasonings so it is just the texture that differs.
Here is the recipe for my vegan “queso”. If you don’t have a carrot you can also use turmeric. It’s mostly for the color! I’ve done many varieties of this sauce and it always comes out delicious
- 1/2 medium carrot
- ½ cup cashews, soaked
- 1 jalapeño in vinegar
- 3 tbsp jalapeño vinegar
- ¼ cup nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ cup water
- ½ small potato
- 1 tbsp garlic, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
