Sushi nachos with avocado

I LOVE Mexican food. Please give me all the guac, chips, salsa, margs, and refried beans forever and ever.

But nachos aren’t just reserved for Mexican food, thankfully. Let’s combine two of the greatest foods in the world (sushi + nachos) and call it dinner, shall we?

Vegan sushi tofu nachos are served!

Instead of tortilla chips used in a traditional nachos recipe, we’re using rice crackers. I like these rice crackers by 365 Everyday Value! Super crunchy and the perfect base for these vegan sushi nachos.

Next up is some cooked brown rice (or whatever variety you want—jasmine would be delicious!), crispy tofu, crunchy vegetables, and a delectable Sriracha mayo sauce. (don’t drink all the sauce before you drizzle it on the nachos, hehe)

Finish it off with roasted nori strips (a great addition to sushi bowls, as well!) and green onions. Then it’s time to DIG IN!
