It may be pretty obvious to some of you, but I can’t continue on with this post without mentioning that this incredible nacho dish is directly influenced by my favorite dish from Vegan MoFo, the Buffalo Chickpea Mac ‘n’ Cheese. Now, I have some devoted followers that make this mac for their families and friends all of the time, which is super rad! Then there’s also the Buffalo Tempeh Grilled Cheese sandwich, and that sandwich has quite a few fans as well.
One of them being Brianne, of the Kitschy Kitchen instagram, who makes it all of the damn time. BUT, one time, she ran out of bread so she made nachos with it. Brilliant!! That is what sparked the merging of recipes in my mind and why we are all here today. Well, and the fact that this makes an awesome Super Bowl snack doesn’t hurt either.
Time-wise, this recipe is great because you can make the ranch-style sauce and the cheese sauce while you roast the chickpeas. Because really, who has time to wait around when we’re talking about nachos here? Not me! Oh, and before I forget, I have another nacho recipe that’s up on Vegan Cuts blog for Chipotle Chili Nachos!
Almost everyone is getting ready for Superbowl feasts and Valentine’s day treats, and all of that is good and well. I even have an awesome Superbowl appetizer recipe coming for you, tomorrow! But, just thinking about all of the (unhealthy) food that is going to be gracing coffee tables and counter tops alike, makes me a little scared for my physique. So, in prepping for the Superbowl and the super bowl of chips and salsa, I have this delicious 50/50 juice for you.
What does 50/50 juice mean? You might ask. When making juices, I try to get a good balance of vegetables and fruit so that there is not too high of a sugar level, but also so that the juice actually tastes good and is extremely enjoyable. I feel that with this juice I’ve found a pretty good balance of that, but if you want to give it a lil’ extra boost of vitamins feel free to add some dark, leafy greens into the mix. After that, your juice may turn a disgusting color, but it will still taste good and be even better for you!
