  • 1 pack Meatless Farm Plant-Based Mince
  • 1 large bag of tortilla chips
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 4 tbsp plant-based yoghurt or soured cream
  • Large handful of chopped coriander
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp tomato or harissa paste
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • Salt and pepper

For the cheese sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours or overnight
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, plus more if necessary
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp salt, to taste

For the pickled onions

  • 1 medium red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cut white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp fine sea salt


  1. Add all the ingredients of the pickled onions into a bowl or jar, loose with a lid or cling film and set aside in the fridge.
  2. Drain the soaked cashews and blend them with all the “cheese” sauce ingredients, set aside.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan with oil and add the Meatless Farm Plant-Based Mince. Wait for 1 min and slowly break it into small pieces, cook for 12-15 mins, turning it around until it’s all golden and crispy.
  4. Add the dried herbs and spices, harissa paste and mix together until everything is combined (you can add 2 tbsp of water if needed to loosen the mixture).
  5. Combine the quartered cherry tomatoes with lemon juice and a pinch of salt, set aside.
  6. Assemble the nachos by layering the tortilla chips, the Meatless Farm Plant-Based Mince, the pickled onions and avocado cubes. Splash on some plant based sour cream or yoghurt, and cheese sauce, followed by the tomatoes, coriander and pickled onions. Tuck in!
