Ingredients

For: 2 serves

VEG BASE

  • 1.5 cup Mushrooms  quartered
  • 1 cup brussels sprouts  trimmed and halved
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes  whole
  • 1  onion  thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp mexican seasoning or spicy herbamare 

BEANS

  • 400g canned or cooked black beans 
  • 2 cloves garlic  minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin 

GUACAMOLE

  • 1 large avocado  ripe
  • 1  lemon  juice only
  •   sea salt and black pepper  to taste
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves  finely chopped

VEGAN CHEESE SAUCE

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews  soaked 4 hours/overnight
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast 
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free, unpasturised miso paste 
  • 1/3 cup filtered water 
  • 1/2  lemon  juice only
  • Pinch  sea salt 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C.
  2. Prepare onions, brussels and mushrooms on a baking tray, lined with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Sprinkle with seasoning, and roast for 30 minutes. With 20 minutes to go, throw cherry tomatoes on top and finish roasting until brussels are crisp, mushrooms and onion are cooked, and tomatoes are juicy!
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the guacamole by mashing the avocado with lemon, salt and pepper, and stirring coriander through.
  5. Strain and rinse beans and throw them in a small pan with the miced garlic and cumin. Warm for 2 minutes, then use a spatula to lightly "smash" about 1/2 of the mix. Lower heat, and keep on the stove to keep warm.
  6. To make the cheese, simply blend all ingredients until smooth, in a high-powered blender.
  7. To assemble, plate/bowl your veggies. Place a scoop of black beans on top, followed by a scoop of guacamole and 2-3 tbsp of the cheese sauce (there will likely be leftovers of this delicious sauce! Great for pasta's too!).
  8. Sprinkle with additional nutritional yeast if desired, or any herbs of choice. Enjoy this healthy take on Nachos!
