Cheesy Vegan Nacho's – LEAH ITSINES

Cheesy Vegan Nacho's

VEGAN NACHOS! It may be the end of World Vegan Month but nachos are always a good idea! Nutritional Yeast is typically used in Vegan or Vegetarian dishes to give that 'cheesy' flavour and you can now find Macro Nutritional Yeast Flakes in the health foods aisle at @woolworth_au! This yummmmmyy creamy sauce is PERFECT for Mexican type dishes like this one. Poured over the chips, topped with salsa and the almighty guac...you've got PERFECT Vegan nachos that everyone will love :)
