The Canadian Vegan moves

Hello all!

I'll be taking a small hiatus until October as I'm making a long-distance move. Please follow me on Twitter though, @thecanadianveg to keep up to date on my travels! See you all on the flip side! :)

Experimenting with Daiya

Hello folks!

This past weekend I finally bit the bullet and bought vegan cheese. I tend to avoid buying processed vegan foods, however I figured I'd see what all the fuss was about. The fuss is justified!

The Real Canadian Superstore in my town only carried the mozzarella shreds, unfortunately, but I threw caution to the wind and made nachos anyway.

I chopped half an onion, half a red pepper and half a green pepper and added them to a skillet with a bit of olive oil.

Then I added some shakes of Tex Mex seasoning, put a lid on and cooked on medium heat for about 10 mins until the onions were translucent.

I spread out some blue corn tortilla chips on a plate, some Daiya ontop of that, and the onion and pepper mixture ontop of that once it was finished. I then nuked the plate in the microwave for 1 min on high and we were in nacho business!

I ate the nachos with some guacamole and salsa on the side. You could also add some lettuce, olives or vegan sour cream if you preferred.

What do you all like to top your nachos with? Leave suggestions in the comments!
