Whether you are looking forward to the Super Bowl or the Oscars… it’s that time of year where entertaining events are happening on TV! That calls for gathering with friends and enjoying good food. Today I’m sharing how to make the ultimate vegan nachos that will fill you up, not out! Your guests are going to love these too - so you may want to make a double batch!
One of the key ingredients of these nachos is the Cauliflower Taco “Meat." Cauliflower saw a huge rise in popularity in 2017, and I believe it will continue to be a go-to in 2018 for healthy eating! Cauliflower adds hearty texture, filling fiber and easily takes on the flavors of seasonings or foods it is cooked with, such as taco seasoning.
Nutritionally, cauliflower is a powerhouse cruciferous vegetable. Consistent cauliflower intake alongside a healthy lifestyle and diet has been associated with helping to fight inflammation, reducing cancer risk, aid in weight loss, improve digestion and bowel regularity, support eye health and support hormone health. Cauliflower contains high levels of vitamins and minerals such as the immune boosting vitamin C!
If you follow a dairy-free diet, the coconut lime sauce is a great way to add a creamy texture to your nachos without any cheese! Coconuts are rich in medium chain triglycerides “MCTS," which are known to digest slowly and be a source of energy for the body. Coconuts also have antibacterial and antiviral properties.
