Instructions

Nachos
  • Sauté onions in oil until clear
  • Add finely chopped garlic and chilli.
  • Peel parsnip and sweet potato and chop into small cubes, then add to the pan.
  • Sprinkle in herbs and stir well.
  • Add chopped tomatoes, kidney beans, and water and let simmer for 5-10 minutes until the beans are heated through.
  • Arrange nacho chips around the edge and sprinkle cheese over everything. Bake at 200°C using upper and lower heat for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is golden.
Guacamole
  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones, and mash the flesh with a fork along with the white cheese.
  • Stir in pressed garlic, chopped coriander, and lime juice. Season with plenty of salt and pepper.
Enjoy!
Tip

Distribute the nacho crisp neatly and evenly around the edges of the casserole. They should create a nice layer around the roasted vegetables. That way, you ensure an aesthetically pleasing presentation that looks absolutely stunning with vibrant red chilli on top and a gorgeously green guacamole dip next to it.

It is not fair to other dishes that this nacho veggies recipe is bursting with this much flavour while being this easy to make. With only a few ingredients, including leftover veggies you can save from lying in the fridge, you can make a delectable dish for everyone to enjoy. Salty crisps, rich cheese, and a lovely kick from the spices and the heat. This meal tickles that part of the palate that says, "One more, please." And with these veggie nachos, we recommend just giving in.

With sweet potatoes, parsnip, and kidney beans

Loaded nachos need the right veggies, and should you have leftover sweet potatoes, parsnips, and maybe a can of kidney beans, you are in for a treat. Sweet potatoes and parsnip may seem like unusual choices, but their combination of sweet and nutty flavours pairs perfectly with the salty, spicy, and cheesy notes from the classic nacho dish. Along with the kidney beans, they also provide a melting mushy texture as you bite into them. One of the key components of a good meal is a great mouthfeel – and when you layer a nacho crisp with a bit of guac and some cheesy fillings, you get literally all you wish for in one bite.

Make a creamy guacamole with cheese

No nacho will go untouched when you supply a creamy guacamole cheese dip to satisfy your guests. With its fresh, bright flavours, it puts a refreshing touch to a slightly indulgent dish. Coriander and lime inject a lovely zing that helps balance out the buttery and earthy notes from the avocados. The guacamole has a creamy consistency that seems tailormade to scoop onto crispy nachos, creating the perfect little bite-sized delight that tastes like heaven. These vegetable nachos are not the only way to use leftover veggies. For example, try our baked sweet potatoes with red onion, kale, and cheese. Or take a completely different route and try a delicious asparagus quiche.
