Most people going into the vegan lifestyle think they are going to lose those comforting dishes that they have grown up with all their lives...my goal has always been to never sacrifice that comfort in pursuit of a vegan recipe & so far I have never met a dish I couldn't conquer.
Game day is upon us! Now to me the best part of televised sports is the sheer gloriosness (you heard me) of the variety of snacks. Now yes vegans have a hard time at these parties but why not show the crowd what you can bring to the table. This recipe is sure to please any sports fan with it's uncanny taste of a classic Comforting diner sandwich. Easy to assemble and make for the big day (or any day). It's so easy the rival sports team could do it...BURN! This recipe is sure to cheer you up, even if your team isn't in the running. Oh and don't forget to wash it down with your favorite brew! Enjoy!
Vegan Reuben Nachos
6-8 cups Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, (regular is fine)
1 cup sauerkraut, drained & liquid squeezed out
1 package Lightlife Vegan Bacon (tastes very similar to corn beef)
6-8 slices Vegan Swiss cheese, I used Daiya
1 cup Vegan Thousand Island Dressing, Homemade or store bought (Hampton Creek)
Salt & Black pepper, to taste
1/2 Tablespoon Parsley, fresh or dried
Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees
Prepare your ingredients: drain and squeeze sauerkraut, chop the vegan bacon "corned beef", and drizzle the vegan thousand islands dressing.
Lightly grease a baking sheet and spread half of the tortilla chips in one even layer. Spread half of the sauerkraut evenly over the chips and then, spread half of the vegan bacon and drizzle part of dressing on top. Repeat the processes by spreading the remaining chips to create the second layer. Repeat the layers of sauerkraut, corned beef, and cheese on top. Drizzle remaining dressing and add your vegan cheese on top.
Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and ooey-gooey...a technical term. Remove from the oven and serve right away with your favorite brew! Enjoy!
