Before going wfpb, one of my all-time favorite foods in the entire world was Macaroni Grill's Italian nachos. At some point they removed them from the menu (I was crushed). Earlier this week I was making our famous creamy broccoli Alfredo sauce when I had a revelation--maybe I could recreate my Italian nachos!
What I came up with feels too good to be true. Listen—this is a big deal.
This is the type or recipe that would convince anyone they could eat this way for life. I hope you try them and love them as much as I did.
Whole grain wonton wrappers. (I made these the night before using this recipe, but subbing white whole grain flour.)
"Sausage" crumbles (Made the night before, using this recipe.)
Banana peppers or pepperoncini
Tomatoes (not a fan of tomatoes and so I omitted)
Cut wonton wrappers into triangles and place on a silicone mat- or parchment-lined baking sheet.
Heat oven to 350° and bake for 7-8 minutes.
While wontons are baking, prepare the Alfredo.
Spread baked wontons on a plate, pour sauce on top (as much or as little as you like), add toppings, and devour!
Bonus recipe! Using the same ingredients, I made another absolutely delicious appetizer.
1. Cut the wonton wrappers into circles or squares (instead of triangles) and bake in a mini-muffin tin for 3-5 minutes (at 350°).
2. In a small bowl mix 1 cup of the sausage crumbles and 1/2 cup of the Alfredo sauce.
3. When the wontons are ready, remove from the oven and scoop the sausage mixture into the wrappers. Return to the oven for another 3-5 minutes.
4. Add your toppings.
