Vegan Nachos

This recipe came from our friend on Instagram @anmazumba (Quebec City Zumba Piloxing Instructor)

  • 1 bag of Neal Brothers Extremely Tasty Tortillas
  • 2 diced Roma Tomatoes
  • fresh chopped coriander
  • 1 diced avocado
  • 1 sliced jalapeño no seed
  • 1 fresh cob of corn ( or canned)

Heat the oven at 350•

put all of those veggies on top of the tortillas on a pan and put it in the oven (5minutes is quite enough)

Take the pan out and put the Neal brothers corn salsa and some cheese on top ( I use the dairy free daiya mozzarella style shreds) and sprinkle it on your nachos•

back in the oven let the cheese melt then hit the broil to make a nice cheese crust

You can serve it with lactose free Greek yogurt, ( less fat than sour cream, same taste)  and bean dip! Make sure to squeeze some fresh lemon juice on it ! So awesome!

Onion rings 1

Dehli-licious Onion Rings

Have you tried our incredible flavour packed Delhi-licious kettle chips? One bite and you’ll be hooked!

These kettle cooked potato chips are a staple in my pantry because they make for quick and tasty meals. I often crush them up and use in place of bread crumbs for meat or to top casseroles. Because they are already flavoured with natural Indian spices, and a hint of mango sweetness, you can skip the spice cabinet.

 These crispy onion rings are always a hit when friends come over and I will be making a couple batches for the super bowl this weekend.

Onion rings 1

Ingredients:
1 package of Vij’s Delhi-licious chips
1/4 cup of corn meal
1 cup of buttermilk
2 large spanish onions
Directions: 
Set rack in the top 3rd of oven and pre-heat to 450ºF.
Slice onions 1/2 in. thick into rings. Pulse chips and cornmeal in a food processor to form a fine flour. Pour into a mixing bowl and pour buttermilk into another. Dip 1-2 rings at a time in buttermilk first then press crumb mixture firmly into each ring (if it’s not sticking well, sprinkle some flour into the crumb mixture)
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 15 minutes. You may need to do 2-3 batches at a time.
I Serve mine with Neal Brothers Lime Mayo for dipping. The contrast of zesty lime, creamy rich mayo and spiced crispy onions will have everyone raving!

This creamy guac has a surprisingly tangy flavour with the addition of Neal Brothers Tomatillo salsa and chopped fresh mango.
