Miso Kimchi Nachos With Cashew Cheese [Vegan]






Cashew Cheese Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 2 hours
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste


  • A TON of tortilla chips (corn if gluten-free, flour if not)
  • 4 stalks of kale, washed and roughly chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • Approximately 1/2 cup kimchi, add more or less to taste


To Make the Cheese Sauce:

  1. Drain the water from the soaking cashews and add the cashews to a blender. Add the nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, water, salt, and miso to the blender and blend on high speed until smooth. Set aside.

To Make the Nachos:

  1. Set your oven to broil. Layer tortilla chips along the bottom of a large, heatproof baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle some of the diced yellow pepper and kale over the chips and drizzle on a generous amount of cashew cheese sauce. Repeat layering until your dish is filled to the top.
  3. Pile the rest of the kale and yellow pepper in the middle and drizzle even more cheese sauce over the whole dish.
  4. Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes, watching carefully. Remove from oven and add kimchi to the top of the nachos.
  5. Serve immediately, it is best hot! You should have extra cheese sauce left for dipping into, and extra kimchi for when you get to the bottom layer.
  6. Enjoy!
