If you love eating clean, plant-based dishes that pack a punch in the flavour department but don’t have you feeling bloated and lethargic then you gotta try this yummy clean nachos dish.
I love Mexican food (well, let’s face it I like pretty much any food so long as it’s tasty) and have adapted the classic (heavy) version to suit a vegan or plant-based diet because I don’t really eat dairy much at all. I recently gave it up for a period of time but now I’ve decided not to be so strict with myself and put labels on what I am.
You could make a cashew sour creme to go on top (I didn’t do that here but have done so in the past). It’s really simple, you just soak a cup of raw cashews overnight and then adding them to a blender with the juice of 1 lemon, salt, 1 tsp nutritional yeast and a little water. You could add a bit of turmeric powder to make it pop even more.
The spirulina guacamole is what makes this dish come alive!
