Ok so this is kind of like cheese and beans on toast but as that’s one of my favourite comfort meals I’m totally happy with that. My vegan version is a lovely smokey bean dish with roast aubergine and red peppers, a rich tomato sauce with chickpeas and flageolet beans (feel free to use your favourites), topped with ‘cheesy’ toasts!
I decided to toast some rye bread which I then topped with a big smear of cashew cheese and popped it under the grill and served it with the smokey beans – so comforting and delicious.
There’s a couple of options for the cashew cheese – a quicker non fermented version which is tasty and another fermented version, which if you have time it’s definitely worth it.
You can flavour the cheese as you wish; plain but seasonal well, with nutritional yeast for extra cheesy-ness, truffle oil is amazing, or with spices – I love adding smoked paprika.
I hope you enjoy, much love Niki xxx
