Vegan Nachos!

by hungryelephant

Haha I had to re-upload this video because all it was, was a 6 minute video of me screen grabbing a video for this video. I’m not smart.

Ever miss nachos? I know I do. I knew I wanted to make keto nachos and that I would try to use cauliflower as the ‘chips’.. but up until last week, I was lost about the cheese. Until I tried nutritional yeast. LOVE THAT STUFF. I knew it would immedately work for vegan nacho cheese.

This recipe is so simple too! I love how versatile the yeast is!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • salt/pepper to taste

In a blender chop up your cashes finely. Add 1/4 cup of watr and mix into a puree. Dump in your yeast, garlic, paprika, salt/pepper and cayenne pepper and another 1/4 cup of water. Puree again. You should have the consistency of a paste. If not, add in more a little more water.

Set that aside and chop up your broccoli into medium sized pieces. Pour the cheese sauce alllll over the cauliflower. Top with your favourite toppings. I used mock beef, mushrooms, alfalfa sprouts and chives!

Bake in the oven at 350 for half an hour OR broil for 15 minutes on high.
