Sometimes I just want a simple snack or a starter that is warm and ready in minutes but is not bread or salad. Oh well I’m just like any other human and can not resist a great plate of nachos. However this recipe is the ultimate vegan lentils nachos and if you read on you will find out why. So are you ready to make this ultimate recipe? Lets get started!
Main reason why I love nachos is because it is conform food. You can keep on eating until the plate is clean. Well after a big plate of nachos I am usually full with no room for big dinners. Probably caused by the meat and the rich oil based sauces on the nachos. So why not try some nachos that are not that rich in calories and sauces but still with the eat on factor and still delicious?
You need good tasting tortilla chips. You can make them yourself but can also buy so low fat ones in the store like I did today. This ultimate vegan lentils nachos have lentils as the perfect minced meat replacement. What is so nice about lentils is they have a great bite and look very similar to minced meat which for me improves the eat on factor.
For this recipe I have made some roasted spicy tomato salsa but with a little water added get a smoother salsa. I have also made a nacho dip (be on the look out for that one). It contains no oil, no dairy but is spicy and smooth and totally yummy. Lastly you have got to have guacamole with your nachos else it is not nachos so that is also included in this recipe.
This recipe takes only a couple of minutes to prepare especially if you have salsa made ahead of time. I think everybody needs some roasted spicy tomato salsa in the freezer or fridge for emergency recipes like this (you will thank me later I promise).
