Jon loves football. I love football food. However, as I’ve started to live a healthier life, I find that standard football fare is a little heavy on the meat and grease for me. This year I decided to try my hand at some super-veggie nachos.
I started with a typical base of corn chips, but these are organic corn chips from Costco. Then I caved to tradition and added traditional, jar cheese sauce. I’m sure that some of you could come up with a better alternative, but this isn’t bad for a start. I added vegetarian re-fried beans, which we have always preferred and olives because Jon had them out.
Then comes the great stuff. I had canned artichoke hearts left from the pizza we made earlier today and chopped up sun dried tomatoes. Then I added roasted cauliflower. I added a light sprinkle of cumin and sprinkled a mix of shredded Mexican cheese on top. I zapped the whole thing in the microwave and added fresh organic tomatoes & salsa.
The artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes added a sweet taste to counter-balance the spicy of cumin and salsa.
Awesome and much healthier than traditional nachos! These will go great with your Green Super Bowl Party!
