Mouth-watering nachos layered with Quorn Crunchy Strips, salsa, guacamole and vegan cheese. Super easy to make and perfect for a speedy healthier ‘fakeaway’.

I’m not going to lie, I am partial to a takeaway. My partner and I sometimes order in on a Friday evening and it’s something we both look forward to from time to time, particularly if it’s been a stressful week. I’m the one who usually prepares meals and as a food blogger who spends most of my days thinking about recipes, testing recipes and creating recipes for content, I like to give myself the day off cooking on Friday nights. It’s always nice to have someone cook for me for a change. Even trying to decide what to eat can become a chore when you’re doing it day in, day out. If we don’t order in, I’ll opt for something that requires no thinking and minimal prep so I can put my legs up and enjoy the start of the weekend!

I do try to limit how many times a month we order in a) most takeaway aren’t exactly cheap b) generally speaking takeaways are unhealthy, even if they are only enjoyed once a week. That’s why recently I’ve started looking for ways to make my own takeaways or ‘fakeaways’ at home that are cheaper and healthier.

I’m teaming up with Quorn to show you how to make a delicious ‘Fakeaway’ recipe that’s perfect as a healthier, meat-free Friday night meal. Whether you’re vegan or not, we all know by now that we should be reducing our meat intake for health reasons, but also the environment. I know a lot of meat eaters are a little hesitant when it comes to trying meat-free products, but Quorn have got their takeaway range spot on – the texture and taste is so chicken like you won’t believe it’s not chicken! You can check out their takeaway range here!

Something that my partner absolutely LOVES is loaded nachos, so I had the idea to make my own version, but make it plant-based using the Quorn Crunchy Strips. I chopped them up and layered them on a baking tray with tortilla chips, homemade salsa and guacamole. It’s so easy to make, delicious and much better for you than your average takeaway! You can always use shop bought salsa and guacamole to make the recipe even easier, but I do think that homemade tastes so much better and is really easy to make anyway.

You can enjoy these nachos as a side/starter or as a main. We usually enjoy it as a main with some vegetables or a salad on the side. It’s so filling, tasty and satisfying!
