Vegetarian Greek Nachos are a delicious dish made with a combination of vegetarian chicken, a quick homemade Israeli salad, and then topped with feta cheese and olives. All this piled high on homemade baked chips. These are so good and so addictive. Talking about homemade baked chips, you don't want to miss these Microwave Veggie Chips and Baked Potato Chips.
I don't think I know anyone who doesn't love nachos. I mean what's better than chips covered in cheese. And although they are delicious, they are definitely not the healthiest option out there. Luckily, I've got you covered with a delicious Mediterranean version that's packed with veggies and tastes amazing. It all starts with my favorite baked chips made with Flatout Flatbread. They come out crispy, crunchy, and ready for all the nacho fixings.
While those cook, it's time to get the toppings together. Fresh Persian cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, parsley, and mint tossed with vegetarian chicken, lemon juice, and olive oil. This is piled high on to the baked chips with feta cheese and black olives. Yum. Seriously, you need to make these as quickly as possible.
How to Make Baked Chips for Nachos
It is super easy to to make a healthy baked chip using flatbread, pita bread, or tortillas. Here's how
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the "bread" into chips and spray on both sides with cooking spray. You can also lightly brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoning if desired.
- Place on a baking sheet (covered with foil for easier clean up).
- Bake for 7-10 minutes (cooking time will vary based on the chip) until crispy.
Recipe Ideas for Vegetarian Greek Nachos
- Make them vegan by leaving off the feta cheese. Sprinkle with some nutritional yeast instead.
- If you don't love vegetarian meat products, just leave them out or add some white beans instead. Chickpeas are another healthy option. Consider roasting them beforehand for extra crunch.
- For some spice, add pepperoncini peppers to the mix as well. You could also use fresh or pickled jalapeno peppers. A drizzle of harissa is also amazing for those who love heat.
- If you don't have Persian cucumbers, regular cucumbers will work as well. Just make sure to remove the skin and scoop out the seeds to ensure they stay crunchy.
- Switch up the flavors by adding some roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, or capers.
- If you are craving melted cheese, start by melting some shredded mozzarella on the baked chips. Then when they come out of the oven, add all your other toppings.
Can I make these Greek Nachos ahead of time?
If you want to use these for meal prep, the best option is to think about it as a chip and dip situation. First, make your chips or you can buy your favorite baked chips. Then make the Greek salad topping. Pack that separately. When ready to eat, either pile the salad mixture onto your chips or simply dip them in. If you are prepping the salad more than a couple of days in advance, pack the dressing separately.
What to Serve with Vegetarian Greek Nachos
It's pretty hard for me to serve nachos without having some amazing things on the side for dipping. Since these are Greek-inspired, I like to serve something Greek or Mediterranean on the side. Usually, I start with hummus. It is a great addition to these nachos but is perfect on the side since it can weigh down the chips and make things soggy.
Next up, I like to have some homemade tzatziki. It's the perfect substitute for a more traditional sour cream. Then like I mentioned above, I like to have some sliced pepperoncini's for anyone looking for a bit of spice. Finally, I finish things off with some Pesto. Believe it or not, the basil works really well with these nachos.
One other idea! Can't stand the thought of having nachos without some kind of avocado. You have a couple of options. First off, you could simply chop up some avocado and add it to the mix. Or try making a Greek-inspired guacamole with parsley instead of cilantro, lemon juice instead of lime juice, and some oregano.
What can I use instead of vegetarian chicken?
Although we love vegetarian "meat" products in our house, I know not everyone is a fan. If you want to try something else, consider using chickpeas or white beans instead. You could also use some baked tofu, thinly sliced tempeh, or a textured vegetable protein to add some proteins. This recipe will also work great if you simply leave it out completely.
