Vegan Black Bean Nachos

Nachos are another family favorite and definitely quick and easy to prepare. By now you may have realized that I love to prepare meals that don’t require me to spend hours in the kitchen. Vegan Black Bean Nachos is amazing!

I’m always on the go, therefore I always have to be in and out of the kitchen in a jiffy. However, I love my meals to be full of colors and flavors. Vegan Black Bean Nachos are full of flavor with my easy vegan nacho cheese sauce, lentil taco meat, black beans, salsa, tomato, avocado, cilantro.

How To Make Vegan Black Bean Nachos

This recipe is certainly no exception. I incorporated the veggies that I have on hand; you may substitute your family’s favorite vegetables here.

For the veggie crumbles, you can use the recipe from my Lentil Taco Fries or Oatmeal Burger Recipe. Many of my readers make the Oatmeal Burger Recipe and freeze them so they can easily use it as a meat substitute, just defrost and crumble. If you are in a hurry and don’t mind using store-bought meatless grounds such as Gardein Beefless Grounds works great.

You can substitute the cheese sauce for hummus, kalamata olives and add vegan sour cream. Instead of avocado, you can substitute guacamole.

      Philly, that’s wonderful. Love how you are making a homecooked meal for your hubby’s birthday. I don’t cook with vinegar either, I find foods with vinegar gives me heartburn. I will have to post a salsa, ketchup and more sauces in general recipe for summer, thank you for reminding me.

        Philly, I just realized that ironically the strawberry ice cream is the one I updated last night. I have changed the recipe and will be posting new photos. I’m not sure if you made the old version because I had edited it with the new measurements.
