Authentic corn totopos chips topped with Mexican quinoa “mince”, pickled cabbage and fresh salsa toppings. Finished with a dollop of “cheesy” cashew sauce.
1. Soak cashew mix in 1/3 cup water, 1 1/2 tbsp vinegar and 1/4 tsp turmeric. Set aside.


2. Heat frypan over medium heat with 1 tbsp oil. Dice onion. Add to pan with quinoa, tomato paste, 1 tbsp cumin, 1 tbsp paprika and 2 cups water. Simmer, covered, for 15-20 minutes until water is absorbed. Take off heat, stir through 1 cup water, season with salt and pepper.

3. Place cabbage in a non metallic bowl. Toss with 1/2 tbsp sugar, 2 tbsp vinegar and salt. Set aside. Dice tomatoes. Remove corn from cob. Chop coriander and slice jalapeño. Set aside.

4. Blend cashew mix together until smooth using a stick mixer or blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Divide totopos chips among plates. Top with quinoa, pickled cabbage and fresh
toppings. Finish with a dollop of cashew sauce. Alternatively, bring all ingredients to the table for a share style meal.

NOTES
The cashew sauce should have the same consistency as sour cream. If you prefer it thinner you can blend in more water.
