VEGAN NACHOS

vegan nachos recipe | designlovefest

we’re on a real cauliflower kick over here and have no plans of ditching it anytime soon! this time we prepared it in a cast iron skillet over the stove and it was delicious on its own but maybe even better paired with nachos. these vegan nachos really hit the spot and making the cashew cheese was super simple. i’ve avoided making it in the past because it seemed complicated but i was wrong, it couldn’t be easier. and i now want to add pickled vegetables to everything i make! follow this tutorial if you’re curious on how to make them! – joanie

cashew “cheese”:
• place all of the ingredients in your blender (we used a vitamix) and blend on high until smooth and creamy. taste and adjust seasoning as desired.

cauliflower: 
• using a cast iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium heat. place the corn on the skillet and let them roast for about 5-6 minutes; moving them occasionally so that they can char on all sides. remove and set aside. cut the cauliflower up into florets. using the same heated cast iron, roast the cauliflower with an additional 3 tablespoons of olive oil. season with the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili powder and salt to taste. roast for about 10 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender.

the rest: 
a while back we shared with you this pickling recipe and had a batch from the night before of red onions and jalapeños. our jalapeños came out a bit spicy but so good!

to assemble, place in a large platter with a layer of chips, then add the roasted cauliflower, corn, black beans, avocado, cilantro, pickled red onions, pickled jalapeños, and cashew cheese. spritz with a squeeze of lime and enjoy!
