Author Notes

Forget the tortilla chips but keep the crunch with these sweet potato nachos topped with PRANA's Charleston BBQ coconut chips. It may not be traditional, but is it ever delicious. Top them with chunks of avocado, beans or chickpeas, sunflower seeds and our unforgettable crunchy coconut strips for an extra exotic touch. Then drizzle with a creamy cheese-less cashew-based sauce. They're tasty, nutritious and make a perfect afternoon snack or light dinner! —Rose Cormier
