I’ve been vegan for maybe 7 months now, but toward the end I’ve been adding some dairy from time to time, but I like to stay vegan as much as possible because the dairy isn’t making me feel good anymore.
Last Christmas, I found the company Angel Food, which make dairy free alternative foods, perfect for those who can’t consume dairy or are vegan. (But it’s not just for those people, it’s enjoyed by dairy and meat consumers, too!) I purchased their mozzarella (which I put on pizza for Christmas dinner) and also their parmesan, which I can say is AMAZING, (perfect for eggplant parmesan, but that’s another story.) They don’t just have cheeses, they also have smokonut which is made of coconut that is turned into bacon and there are also meringues!
They’ve just come out with two new products; Cheesy Sauce Mix in Mild and Tasty. FINALLY I can have macaroni and cheese, lasagnes, put it on vegetables and make nachos. This time round, I’m going to be testing out the Tasty flavour for my nachos, and try the Mild one in another blog post.
- NACHOS: Things you’ll need:
- ANGEL FOOD Cheesy Sauce Mix – Tasty
- non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
- Beans (preferably kidney, I also used cannelini) or if you eat meat, use mince too
- (optional) pasta sauce
- (optional) nacho seasoning
- corn chips (any kind you have/like)
- (optional) avocado
All you need to do is add beans to a pan with seasoning and pasta sauce on a medium heat until cooked. This took about 5 minutes. Lay corn chips into a dish or onto a plate, pour beans over the top. For the sauce, add half a cup of dry mixture into a pan and slowly add 2-3 cups of non dairy milk depending on how thick you want it. It will take 3 minutes, but you can do this in the microwave, if you’d like, but it took too long so I put it in a pan on a medium heat and it immediately thickened, so I suggest doing that. Pour as much as you like onto the nacho mix, and there you have it. Add toppings if you like.
My opinion is that the mozzarella and parmesan would go better on here, and that this sauce is better suited to lasagne and pastas, but it still was great. It’s not real cheese, so it’s obviously not going to taste like real cheese, but it has that cheesy flavour, sort of like carbonara. It’s not my favourite but it’s still nice.
In my next post i’ll be trying out the Mild Cheesy Sauce mix with vegetables! Because who likes vegetables? It’s always better with sauce.
