We took classic cheesy nachos and gave them a breakfast vibe with scrambled eggs and then took them to the next level with satisfying add-ins including beans and creamy avocado. This is a perfect dinner to share around the table where a bit of mess is to be celebrated. You can also serve it with your favourite salsa.
The key to perfectly custardy scrambled eggs is to start them in a barely warm pan and then gently cook over lower heat. Being too aggressive with the heat and cooking speed is what results in rubbery eggs.
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Line large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Pile half the tortilla chips on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle half the cheese, beans, tomatoes, and pickled jalapeno (if using). Create a second layer with the remaining same ingredients. Bake until cheese is completely melted, about 7 minutes.
While nachos are baking, in medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and pepper. To large skillet over medium-low heat, add oil and pour in egg mixture. Let eggs sit for a couple minutes until they start to set and firm up at the edges. Using spatula, begin to pull eggs in from the edges to the middle of the pan. Continue this motion until soft curds form.
Scatter eggs, avocado, green onions, sour cream, and cilantro over nachos. Serve with lime wedges.
This vegan take on classic shepherd’s pie is jam-packed with bold and rich flavours that will ensure no one will miss the meat. While a great source of fibre, lentils also contain the highest amount of folate out of all plant-based foods. Oven ready If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, you’ll need to transfer cooked lentil filling to a baking dish before topping with mashed sweet potatoes and baking.
Cauliflower has been having a moment lately, and this salad proves exactly why. Tender caramelized cauliflower is crowned in a glorious sweet and savoury crumble that will ensure it a place on your table all month long. Of all tree nuts, pecans have the highest concentration of flavonoids, which offer beneficial anti-inflammatory effects, and they also protect your cells from oxidative damage. Crumble perfection This crumble topping is too good not to use it on other preparations. Sprinkle over a carrot ribbon salad to add some extra pizzazz, use as a glorious garnish on a soup or stew, or consider generously spooning over your next vegetable “steak” to add some delicious textural variation.
This gloriously comforting dish gets its creamy lusciousness from a can of white beans. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand instead of broccoli. Pass the pasta Instead of regular pasta, consider serving this sauce over zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, or cooked spaghetti squash.
This nut-free take on classic queso dip is everything you want and more. Paired with chips, crackers, or crudités, this creamy, zesty, smoky, and oh-so-satisfying dip is easy enough to whip up for a cozy snack or as an appetizer for company. Go nuts! If you’re okay to eat nuts, try substituting sunflower seeds with 1 cup (250 mL) raw cashews.
