Home made cheese tortilla chips (vegan)
Wow it has been a bit of a roller coaster of a couple of weeks that has seen my work email account hacked, Sylvia having her school photo with sticky tape holding together her broken glasses frames and sticky taped together, and me forgetting to bring Sylvia's swimming stuff to her lesson*. Thank goodness for little victories like finding time for a catch up with friends, getting on top of the school paperwork, camellias blossoming in the backyard. And fun with home made cheesy tortilla chips.
E and Sylvia and her friend who was visiting were not impressed. They were quite tasty and mostly quite crisp but occasionally slightly chewy in the middle. I really liked them. And if not for these cute little corn chips, the tortillas probably would have been thrown out. I call it a little victory.

Home made cheese tortilla chips
Adapted from Fork and Beans and The Kitchn
4 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion flakes
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
6 corn tortillas
olive oil (1-2 tbsp)
Preheat oven to 180 C. Make seasoning mix first by mixing all ingredients in a blender until a fine powder. Set aside. Stack tortillas and cut into 6 -8 wedges. Place on a lined tray. Brush with olive oil (or spray the oil) then sprinkle with seasoning mix. Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges curl up very slightly and slightly darker in colour. Cool and snack.
NOTES: Leftover seasoning can be kept in an airtight container for baking, stews and vegan cheese sauces. I cooked my chips for about 14 minutes and put the oven at 200 C because my oven is so slow. I could not be bothered blending seasoning to make it finely ground so I just used a hand held blender in a small mixing bowl.
