Vegan Nachos with Sweet Potatoes and Tofu Sour Cream Recipe
1 large sweet potato, scrubbed with skins left on
1 avocado, cubed
15 ounces cooked black beans
12.3 oz non-GMO firm silken tofu
½ lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons jarred sliced jalapenos

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, slice the sweet potato into ¼ inch rounds using a mandolin or knife. Spread rounds evenly on a baking sheet and lightly brush with coconut oil and sprinkle with ⅛ tsp sea salt. Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Once cooked through, top the sweet potato rounds with black beans, avocado, chives, jalapeno slices, and cilantro. Top with tofu sour cream and sprinkle with chili powder. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!
