Well, this is lame. I think I'm going to stay in, rent The Holiday, and watch it on repeat by myself all night. Haha. At least I ate well today. I made nachos with "cheese" sauce, jalapenos, diced tomatoes, and avocados. I also made sweet rolls with cinnamon buttery spread. ♥
Clearly, daylight savings time has become my arch enemy in getting good pictures these days. It has also been particularly gloomy for Florida lately. Needless to say, it's frustrating. Oh well, the nachos tasted amazing anyways. You can also add in diced onions, black beans, bell peppers, and/or tempeh for more variety. Enjoy.
1 ripe tomato, diced
1 avocado, sliced
1 jalapeno, sliced
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. dried cilantro
1 cup nacho cheese (see recipe below)
Hot sauce (to taste)
Instructions:Lay the tortilla chips out on a plate or casserole dish. Toss the diced tomato with the olive oil and cilantro. Drizzle the tortilla chips with the cheese and hot sauce, and then top them with the tomato, avocado, and jalapenos.
Vegan Nacho Cheese:1 1/2 cups plain unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 1/2 tsp. sesame tahini
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
1 tsp. chiles, minced
1/4 tsp. miso (optional)
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
A few dashes of cayenne pepper
1. Whisk the almond milk, tahini, nutritional yeast, chiles, miso, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and salt together in a medium saucepan. Slowly whisk in the flour.
2. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium, and let simmer until it thickens, another 10 minutes, whisking often.
3. Remove from heat, and let stand for 10 minutes. It should thicken a little more.
