Here's what you'll need to make vegan nachos that are just wonderful. I make my own salsa and guacamole but use Tofutti Sour Cream, Daiya Cheese and Que Pasa Tortillas. Firstly, here are the recipes:

Que Pasa Tortilla Chips
Tofutti Sour Supreme
- I consider this to be vegan junk food. It has many benefits over dairy, however it is made from soy which is, more than likely, a GMO product. However, it tastes just like sour cream or even better. Benefits:
- no lactose
- no milk
- no gluten
- no butterfat
- no cholesterol
- You can buy it in the dairy case by the other sour creams. I paid $3.77 (on sale) at Country Grocer on Twelfth Street, Nanaimo. The regular price is about $4.50.
Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds:
I love daiya products. They have shredded cheeses, cheese slices, creamed cheese and cheese cakes (in the frozen dairy case). Their cheeses taste great and melt well. The benefits are:
- Dairy, lactose and casein free - lactose is the milk sugars in milk. Casein is the protein in milk that is a known carcinogen.
- Soy free
- No cholesterol
- No trans-fats
Daiya cheese is made from tapioca flour, Non-GMO canola oil or non-GMO safflower oil. This product isn't cheap ($5.99) but goes on sale frequently at various supermarkets. You can use it in grilled sandwiches, macaroni, tacos, nachos, or any another meal where you would use shredded cheese. Keep it in the fridge and use it up faster than you would regular cheese as it can go off and grow mold faster than other cheeses.
