Despite its traditional game-day look, this glorious spread is not your average stack of nachos. In a huge win for vegetarian sports fans, we swapped ground beef for meaty tempeh stewed with tomatoes and a winning mix of seasonings. Black beans, punchy radish, creamy avocado, and melty cheese round out a dish that could not be more fun to eat. If you want these nachos to be fully plant-based you can use shredded dairy-free cheese. To go a little more traditional, regular tortilla chips can be used instead of the sweet potato variety.
No beef with tempeh
You might be surprised at how versatile crumbled tempeh can be. Use the crumbles as a meaty meat-free option in grain bowls, tacos, burritos, pasta sauces, lasagna, chili, nachos, and in countless other ways. And it’s easy to modify them to fit any flavor profile: Mexican, Asian, or Italian, for example.
