A plate of comfort-food deliciousness in the form of Vegan Pulled NO-Pork Nachos!
There’s a plethora of options for cheese in this nacho-libré momento… more proof that leaning towards vegan eating is actually an abundant move, not a restrictive one.
The more you explore the different options for your nostalgically yummy dishes, the wider your foodie mind will be opened!
Instead of dairy mozzarella, you can either choose from a ton of different vegan mozz alternatives (check out Vegan Supply and order online internationally), or make yourself one of these whole food cheeses: Cashew Cheese, Carrot Potato Cheese Sauce, Mind Blowing Multi-Purpose Cheese Sauce (nut-free), or even this Lentil Cheese Sauce.
There are so many different ways to cheese up your nachos!
And let’s not forget about jackfruit and the miracle that it is. If you’remissing that pulled texture of pork, jackfruit is your answer. Upton’s Naturals makes a great BBQ jackfruit, or the Jackfruit Company. Otherwise, buy it plain and sauté with some flava flave (as seen below).
No need to support the demand for this in this pulled pork situation.
You nacho lover, you.
- 1 package of pre-marinated BBQ jackfruit(or, use plain and sauté it for 5 minutes with 2 tbsp tamari, 1 tbsp ketchup, 1 tsp molasses, 1 tsp garlic powder)
- 1 package of vegan mozzarella, shredded (we used Daiya's new mozzarella shreds, but you could also use this Alfredo Sauce!)
- OR make your own Nacho Cheese Sauce or this Carrot Potato Cheese Sauce, or this Multi-Purpose nut-free Cheese Sauce, or this Cashew Cheese Sauce

- If your jackfruit is plain, follow the above ingredients and sauté jackfruit
- Spread a layer of chips, top with a generous sprinkle of cheese, a few onions, olives and pieces of jackfruit.
- Do it again! It's all about the layering.
- Once the top layer is done, and topped off with cheese, bake for 10 minutes.
- Then broil for 2 minutes on low.
