Everyone loves nachos, and many of us love Middle Eastern flavors, so why not fuse them together?! Well… I am just so excited to share this Ultimate Greek Nachos recipe with you!
In reality, this is a simple Mediterranean Style Salad with Pita chips and all the fix-ins layered on top; it’s just such a fun way of serving these components, and turns it into a true work of art, making it that much more exciting to share and enjoy!
You can use a perfect large tomato, but just for fun, I used colorful heirloom cherry tomatoes along with a crisp hothouse cucumber, and black kalamata olives.
To make this recipe easier, you can use store-bought tzatziki and/or hummus in place of the 2 sauces in this recipe, but I feel the tahini dressing really makes the dish.
We have a delicious tahini sauce with a pinch of nutritional yeast for an extra creamy flavor and a B12 boost and date paste for a bit of sweetness to balance out the flavors, and a fresh, dairy free almond yogurt-based tzatziki sauce with herbs.
The grand feature of this dish is the tofu feta. If you think you’ll miss cheese eating plant-based….be prepared to be amazed. The tofu is drained and pressed of its liquid, cubed, and marinated in miso paste (bringing that cheesy, smoky flavor) red wine vinegar, lemon for tang, and fresh herbs.
The ultimate result is a very close look, feel and taste of feta! The lemon, mint, and dill in the tzatziki sauce bring this dish to the next level, and all of these combined create a delicious, fresh, bursting with flavor; sweet, savory and crunchy stacked bites of goodness. I must be on a kick because I recently posted a yummy Middle Eastern salad that also features these beautiful tofu feta bites.
The tofu is the protein in this dish, the almond yogurt adding some protein and probiotics, tomatoes and cucumber for lycopene, vitamins, minerals and fiber, sesame seeds and date paste offering a dose of iron, olives for essential fatty acids, and fresh herbs and lemon juice offer detoxifying effects. The only thing you will have to monitor is eating too many pita chips!
Aside from being a little messy, this dish makes for a perfect appetizer for the big game or family gathering or opening snack for any get-together and will be the talk of the party.
This dish is so fun, fresh, satisfying and colorful...just an overall crowd pleaser.
