  1. Soak the cashews
    To make the cheese sauce, soak cashews in warm water for at least 2 hours.
    Option: to speed up the process, cover cashews in boiling water and let them sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the potatoes
    Preheat the oven to 200C (400F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wash, scrub and thinly slice the potatoes. Arrange the slices on the baking sheet on a single layer and bake for around 17 - 20 minutes or until brownish.
  3. Prepare the cheese sauce
    Transfer all cheese ingredients in a narrow vessel and process with a vertical stick blender until smooth. Transfer the sauce to a saucepan on medium heat and whisk until it thickens. Set aside.
  4. Prepare the beans
    Combine all bean ingredients in a small pan and let it simmer for 5 minutes for the flavors to meld together.
  5. To assemble the nachos plate, layer the potatoes followed by beans and topped with cheese sauce, parsley and onions. Enjoy!
