How to Make Loaded Veggie Nachos

You know the drill by now. I’m all about easy steps and easy recipes and these vegan nachos are no different. Here’s all you’ve gotta do:

  1. Slice the tortillas into triangle shapes and pop them in the oven with a spritz of olive oil, salt and pepper. OR just purchase store-bought chips. I like these two brands: Late July AND Que Pasa. They’re clean!
  2. Blanch the green beans (directions below and in the audio ABOVE) and chop the other fruit/veggies.
  3. Make the guacamole and lay everything out on a large platter and SERVE.

That is IT.

What do you think? You want to give them a go?

They’re kid-approved and obviously, adult-approved even though there is NO cheese in here. The tahini (see the Notes section of the below recipe for the brand I recommend) makes up for the cheesiness and you won’t miss it.

These nachos are fresh, they’re ideal for spring and they’re also full of protein, fiber and of course healthy fats so you can feel good about serving them to anyone and everyone, including yourself.

Recipe type: Entree

Ingredients

  • 6 large gluten-free whole grain tortillas
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided extra-virgin
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 head kale dinosaur (flat)
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 pound green beans
  • 1 large bell pepper orange, red or yellow
  • 1 large red apple diced
  • 1 large green apple diced
  • 2 Tbsp. walnuts chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. well-stirred tahini

Guacamole

  • 2 large avocados ripe
  • 1 large lime
  • 2 Tbsp. red onion diced
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Stack the tortillas on top of each other and slice them into triangle shapes. Brush or spray them with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, then sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and bake for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

  3. Meanwhile, massage the kale with your hands in a large bowl with the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil, juice of 1 lemon, salt and pepper to taste until the kale turns dark green and is tender. Set aside.

  4. Prepare a large bowl of ice water and set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a pinch of salt. Submerge the green beans for 1-2 minutes or until bright green and then pull them out with a slotted spoon and put them into a large bowl of ice water. Let them sit in the ice water bucket for 5 minutes then drain.

  5. Make the guacamole in a medium bowl by combining all the guacamole ingredients and mashing/mixing well.

  6. Lay the baked tortilla chips on a flat surface and top with the green beans, kale, remaining chopped veggies and guacamole. Drizzle with tahini and sprinkle with walnuts, salt and pepper and serve immediately.

I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.
