nachos with cheese
Vegan creamy cheese sauce? Crunchy nachos? Yummy toppings? You are in the right place! Nachos with vegan cheese sauce! Gluten-free and can easily be made nut-free.
When I made this recipe for the first time I was so stoked. It is honestly the best nachos I have ever had, and the vegan cheese is really out of this world.
It is important to stick to all of the ingredients. Even the toppings. And for sure - if you are not nut-free do not omit the peanuts, and make sure they are unsalted. It is the whole combination of all those flavors that makes the whole dish so delicous.
I highly recommend you having it at a party or while watching a movie (or anytime really). Very important is to servle it immiedily. When the nachos are still a bit warm, the cheese is freshly blended and all veggies are fresh. You don't want the nachos to sit too long with the cheese as they will soak it in and it will no longer be so nice and crunchy.
This recipe will be enough to make 2 very hungry people full or will be great for 4 people as a snack. There is no need do miss out on anything while being vegan!
