Nachos are one of the wealthiest snacks. However, most of the products on the market are high in saturated fat high in sodium and contain gluten.
Now, can you make homemade vegan and gluten-free nachos? Yes, of course.
Below you can see a recipe for healthy low-fat, and vegan nachos. I have tried it in my vegan cooking workshop, and it was a success.
How to make homemade nachos?
Making homemade nachos requires no more than five ingredients and 20 minutes. They go well with the classic Mexican guacamole, hot sauces, or vegan cheeses.
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cups water
Spices (pepper, turmeric, paprika, dehydrated garlic)
How to make homemade nachos? :
Mix all the dry ingredients and add water to a consistency similar to crepe batter.
In a pre-heated non-stick frying pan, turn the mixture so that it is as thin as possible.
When you see that it is firm, turn it to the other side. Repeat until the mixture is finished.
Once the crepes are made and stacked, cut into 8 (as if they were a pizza), each triangle is a nacho.
Place on a baking sheet, distributing them well, and bake in a medium oven (180 degrees) until they are dry and crispy (10’min approx)
Tips for making whole grain vegan nachos
Vegan whole grain nachos are a healthy snack with spreads, vegan cheeses, hummus, or guacamole. Tip: When cold, store them in an airtight jar. This will help them stay crisp and not absorb moisture.
Whole-grain homemade nachos made from rice flour and chickpeas are a permitted snack for those who have gluten intolerance. In addition, due to their high content of vegetable fiber, they are also allowed for diabetics and in weight-loss diets.
