No need to deny a craving for nachos while cleansing. This recipe is quick to make and works as a filling lunch and has a delicious bite that's hard to resist. The cashew cheese gives you lots of protein but if you want more, we've added shredded chicken to this and it's pretty darn good. When you're not cleansing, these make a great snack, especially if your family requires gluten and dairy-free snacks for movie nights or Sunday afternoons with the game on. No matter what the day holds, these nachos are a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
We almost decided to call this recipe "Better Than Coleslaw", since it's like an ultra-healthy version of that traditional side dish. Our Autumn Slaw pairs perfectly with the pulled chicken recipe from last week. It's also a great salad topping, and as an added bonus, the apple cider vinegar helps with digestion and acid reflux. We hope you enjoy it.
As the weather turns colder, we welcome recipes like this. Comforting and melt-in-your-mouth flavorful, it's definitely a favourite of both Clean Chefs and everyone we make it for!

Chefs' Note: It's okay and cleanse-friendly to use white wine in cooking since the sugar and alcohol cooks off. Cheers!
This is a delicious dish that requires very little prep time. The bulk of the time involved in this recipe is hands-free, just letting the flavors mingle and the rice cook in the oven!
