Get that fork away from your computer monitor!!! I will not be responsible for scratches you inflict on your own screen…and I don’t think you’re gonna be able to just buff those out.
You know when you eat something for the first time and you say….”Why have I been deprived of this my entire life?” The wife-unit had one of those moments when I put these vegan Irish nachos in front of her. Sure, she was hesitant at first because your typical vegan nachos use tortilla chips (buh-DOY!), but these ain’t yo’ momma’s nachos…unless yo momma is Irish…then I suppose they could be. Finding Irish nachos at happy hour is pretty rare. Finding a bar that serves vegan Irish nachos would be like winning the vegan happy hour lottery!
When I think about it, I’m positive that this recipe was result of unprotected sex between a vegan nacho plate and a vegan breakfast scramble. It’s not quite breakfast and it’s not quite nachos. It doesn’t fit in at school, but all the guys think its pretty hot because its different. I mean, I’d hit it. Jean-Luc, what do you think?
Vegan Irish Nachos
- 1 package of frozen shoe string fries
- Shredded vegan cheddar (I used Daiya because it’s da bomb)
- 1/2 of an onion cut into 1 inch strips
- 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1-2 jalapenos – diced
- 4 strips Smart bacon – chopped
- 2 green onions – chopped (green parts only) (optional)
Cook the french fries per the instructions on the packaging then move to an oven safe platter or any other oven safe dish you have. Spread them evenly on the platter/dish.
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Evenly scatter the black beans on top of the french fries then add the strips of onion and the diced jalapenos on top. Spread the shredded vegan cheddar over the top of the fries and veggies, then top with the Smart bacon.
Put in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Once finished, top with the green onion and prepare for deliciousness.
