Sheet Pan Veggie Nachos with Cashew Cheese

If you haven’t noticed already, I have been ALL ABOUT one pan (or minimal pan) meals lately.

A few weeks ago, I shared this Vegetable Paella with a Farm Egg, which I’ve already made like 3 times since then and seriously cannot get enough of. You technically need two dishes for this one, but clean up is E-A-S-Y, let me tell you!

And then, just last week, I posted this One Pan Veggie Potato Breakfast Hash, which could not be simpler (or healthier) if I tried. Cue today: Sheet Pan Veggie Nachos with Cashew Cheese.

Yeah, we’re noticing the pattern. Between busy workdays, lots of weekend errands and travels, and baby-related activities, these one pan meals have been LIFESAVERS. Who else feels me?!?

So today, we’re keeping the super simple one-pan trend alive, but doing it SUPER BOWL style. Or just craving-nachos-on-a-Thursday-night style. Whatever floats your boat!

These nachos are not only one-pan friendly, but they’re also LOADED with veggies and creamy cashew-based chile cheese. <– Which I promise won’t have you missing the real stuff one bit! It’s creamy and just a little spicy and packed with green chile flavor. Holy NOM.

As with most of my recipes, this is very easily tweak-able with whatever ingredients you have on hand. Want to add zucchini instead of peppers? Go for it! Don’t like radishes? Just skip ‘um. I’ve tried a few other combinations of this same recipe already and they’ve all turned out BOMB.

So whether you’re looking for recipes for the big game or just some semi-indulgent (but still healthyish) comfort food, these nachos are a WINNER.

Well, I’m going to get back to binging as many episodes as I can of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (<– who else is obsesssssedddd?!?) Enjoy the rest of your week everyone and these nachos are in your near future 🙂
