Despite containing a few ingredients, these matcha inspired nachos (or Matchos if you will) are so quick and easy to prepare. They’re great for a snack or even a grazing style dinner.

To keep vegan, we recommend serving with a cashew cheese or even a vegan sour cream. Alternatively you can serve with goats cheese or greek yoghurt mixed with a touch of lemon oil.

  • 200 grams organic corn chips beans
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 brown onion chopped
