You can veganize anything, literally, even bar food. I was having a major craving for nacho’s so… I made a vegan version of it.

This is when they came out of the oven


this is when I soaked them in vegan sour cream… YUMMY!



Corn Tortillas
Vegan Nacho Cheese (from the Uncheese cookbook)
Vegan Sour Cream (from one of the Sarah Kramer Cookbooks)
Salsa (tomatoes, one small onion, 1 clove garlic and lemon juice to taste)
Taco flavoured faux meat (ground round and here is where I get lazy, taco mix)

Oh, my Gordon, it was good. In the picture there are beans, again being lazy, didn’t make those, they came out of a can…. Sorry I’ve been working on podcasts all day. Tomorrow is food sunday so many more good things to post…
