What You Do:

1. For the quinoa mixture, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot. Add onion, garlic, sage, thyme, oregano, pepper flakes, chili powder, and cumin and mix well. Sauté for 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Add quinoa, soy sauce, and Worcestershire and mix well. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Add salt to taste.

3. For the cheese sauce, in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt margarine. Add flour and whisk together. Reduce heat to medium and brown mixture for 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in soymilk. Once soymilk comes to a boil, stir in cheese and nutritional yeast and stir constantly. Once cheese is melted, remove from heat and set aside.

4. To assemble the nachos, make a bed of torilla chips, cover with warm quinoa filling, and top with cheese sauce, scallions, olives, and salsa. Serve hot.
