Healthy Nachos

Try this healthy version of an all-time favourite Mexican dish. Replace corn chips with mountain bread crisps for a wholesome alternative.


  • Mountain bread
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 200g beef mince
  • 200g can lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 400g can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoons light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the mountain bread into triangles, place on an oven try and bake for 5-10 minutes until crisp.

Fry the onion and garlic for two minutes. Add the chilli powder and cook for a further minute. Add the celery, cook for five minutes then stir in the mince and cook for a further five minutes. Stir in the lentils and canned tomatoes, simmer for eight minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed.

Combine the fresh tomato, avocado and coriander in a bowl.

Assemble the mountain bread crisps on a plate, top with the beef, salsa and sour cream. Sprinkle with the cheese and serve.
