- 2 pita breads
- 1 cup re-hydrated soya mince
- 1 medium onion diced
- 1/2 red pepper diced
- 1 tin whole tomatoes in juice
- 4 cloves garlic roughly chopped
- 1 tbs tomato sauce
- 1 tbs chutney
- 1 tbs worcester sauce
- olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- herbs & spices to taste – I used chicken spice, paprika, origanum, red chilli flakes, and a teaspoon of curry.
For the topping:
- 250g grated cheese
- 1 round feta cheese diced
- 1 ripe avocado pear
- 2 tomatoes diced
- 1/2 lemon
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celcius
- Cut the pita breads open into two rounds by sticking a knife into the bread and cutting around the edges
- Cut the pita rounds in half, then again, and again until you have little triangles resembling corn chips
- Drizzle a bit of olive oil into an oven pan and put the pita triangles in the pan, drizzle a bit more olive oil over it and put it in the oven to crisp – about 15 minutes – taking care not too over-brown them
- Next, put a good glug of olive oil into a pan and fry the onion in it for about 5 minutes, then add the re-hydrated soy mince and fry for another 5 minutes or until the water evaporates
- Add the tin of tomatoes and all of the spices, tomato sauce, chutney and worcester sauce.
- Cook for another 40 minutes on low heat for the flavours to develop
- Once done, remove from the stove and let it cool for about half an hour
- Next, arrange the pita triangles on 2 plates, then spoon enough of the soy mince on it to make a generous helping
- Divide the feta cheese between the two plates and place it on top of the soy mince
- Sprinkle the grated cheese over the mince
- Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling
- While the nachos are cooking in the oven, peel and core the avo and squeeze the juice of the 1/2 lemon over it, the mash it finely with a fork
- Once the nachos are out of the oven, top with the diced tomatoes and the avo.
Makes 2 generous helpings of Nachos
Tip: if you don’t want to go to the lengths of making your own nacho chips, you can use the kind that you can buy from a store. Also, if you like your nachos really hot and spicy, add more chilli flakes and maybe a bit of cayenne pepper to it.
