Vegetable Nachos

There is nothing like a big plate of loaded nachos, full to the brim of vegetables and smothered in creamy chipotle sauce and topped with all the best bits. Dig in, and share (if you want...)
Prep Time: 40 minutes
​Cook Time: 10 minutes
​Total Time: 50 minutes
  • 2 cups butternut squash cut into small 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 ⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • tortilla chips
  • 1 cup cooked black beans or BBQ Black Beans 
  • salt to taste


Creamy Chipotle Sauce
  • 1/3 cup tahini mixed well
  • 1 hot chilli
  • 1 tablespoon pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
  • 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove peeled


To Serve
  • 1/2 cup avocado mashed with salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh salsa
  • 3 spring onions/scallions thinly sliced
  • a baking tray lined with baking parchment
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). In a large bowl, toss the butternut squash cubes with the oil, ground chipotle or cayenne pepper and a sprinkling of salt to taste. Spread out evenly on a baking tray and roast in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes until golden and tender.
  2. To make the creamy chipotle sauce, place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend together with 1/3 cup of water until smooth. Add more water, if needed, to reach the desired consistency.
  3. Turn the oven temperature down to 350°F (180°C). Spread the tortilla chips out on the lined baking tray – enough to fill the tray generously in a thin layer. Scatter over the roasted butternut and then the black beans, spreading them out evenly across the tray. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the tray from the oven and top the nachos with small dollops of guacamole or mashed avocado and salsa, a drizzle of chipotle tahini sauce and a scattering of spring onions/scallions.
Bon appetit!!
