Cheesy Beefy Vegan Nachos

Published January 29, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

It’s no secret that my favorite food is mexican. One of the things I totally miss is ordering nachos. I’ve been meaning to make some, and finally got around to it last night since needed a quick dinner and had a big bag of TVP sitting on the counter from my shopping trip this week. The amount of cheese you add is up to you. If you put very little, the cheese will get crisped in the oven. (like real cheese) If you add a bunch, it’ll be nice and melty and gooey. (like real cheese!)

Cheesy Beefy Vegan Nachos

Tortilla Chips
1 recipe for TVP, below
1/2 can diced tomatoes, drained (I used the garlic & onion kind)
1-2 c. of Daiya cheddar shreds
1 c. of shredded lettuce

Beefy TVP:

1 c. of water
2 tsp. liquid smoke
2 tsp. vegan worcestershire
2 tbsp. taco seasoning (I use the recipe from VCF.)
1 c. of TVP

Directions:

1. Turn broiler on. In a small saucepan, heat water, liquid smoke, worcestershire and seasoning to a boil. Remove from heat and add TVP.

2. On a cookie sheet layer tortilla chips, cooked TVP, tomatoes, and cheese. Broil for 5 minutes. Top with lettuce just before serving.

YUMMMMMMMMM!!! I served these with a ramekin full of vegan sour cream. I use the Follow Your Heart brand. I know a lot of people rave about the Toffutti brand, but I think this tastes truer. It has the appropriate tang.
