Vegan Thanksgiving Nachos
A lot can be said about Thanksgiving, some good and some bad. For the majority it is a National “Holiday” where people enjoy the day off with lots of food, family and friends.
This year however, will be a little different celebration. To me, Thanksgiving is no longer a “normal” holiday it is actually my Vegan Anniversary. Yes, one year ago was my last small sliver of meat. WOOOHOOO!! Yes, I am alive and thriving!
This year we will be having an all Vegan Thanksgiving and it will be amazing. A celebration for our health, the animals and the environment!!
Anywhoo…although I won’t be serving these Nachos at Thanksgiving they sure have been enjoyed several times these weeks leading up. I mean…who only wants to enjoy the flavors of Thanksgiving one or two days. NOT ME!!!
From the savory flavors of the green beans and potatoes to the sweet flavors of the cranberries and sweet potatoes, the aroma puts you in a nostalgic state of mind. I wanted to extend my nostalgia and revel in the splendor of this holiday without needing to cook a feast and spend hours in the kitchen.
These Thanksgiving Nachos are ALL the flavors of Thanksgiving in a compact and quick fashion. All of the bases are covered, even down to the “meat-less” Chik’n representative of the Turkey.
The golden and gooey cheese sauce is Sweet and Savory and envelops the tortilla chips. A sweet potato casserole has never tasted so good.
Honestly, this will basically be my go to meal during the winter months. So quick, so delicious and STILL GOOD FOR YOU!!
