Despite containing a few ingredients, these matcha 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 goat’s cheese or greek yoghurt mixed with a touch of lemon oil.
200 grams organic gluten free corn chips
- Bean mix
1 tbsp olive oil
1 brown onion, finely chopped
1/2 red capsicum, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1-2 small red chillies, finely chopped
1/2 tsp paprika
400 grams organic black beans (or adzuki beans), drain and rinse well
- Corn salsa
1 cob cooked corn (to cook corn, place in a small amount of water in a heavy based pan. Place lid over pad and cook/steam on medium heat for approximately 5 minutes. Do not allow to boil dry. Add more water if required)
1/2 red capsicum, chopped
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 tomato (deseeded), chopped
1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 ripe avocado
1 tsp Matcha Maiden matcha powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
- Firstly, prepare the bean mix. Heat oil in heavy based pan and add onions. Braise over medium heat for approx. 5 minutes.
- Add capsicum and tomatoes, cook for a further 10 minutes.
- Then add remaining ingredients, reduce heat and cook a further 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a little water if the mixture starts to look too dry.
- Allow to sit for up to 30 minutes for flavours to infuse.
- Meanwhile, prepare corn salsa. Cut corn off the cob and transfer to a small mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and gently mix.
- To prepare guacamole, simply combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix by hand for a chunky texture, or blend for a smooth avocado dip.
- Arrange beans, corn salsa and guacamole on corn chips. Serve with goat’s cheese, yogurt or cashew cheese and garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Alternatively, for a more traditional style nachos, sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and bake for approx. 10 minutes at 160 degrees C.
Why we choose Matcha Maiden
Matcha Maiden was the first matcha brand to hit the Australian market. The now thriving brand was an accidental business baby born out of frustration when matcha was surprisingly difficult to come by. Ceremonial grade matcha was too expensive for daily use and required special tools to prepare. Ingredient grade was low quality and often diluted by sweeteners. Matcha Maiden is the embodiment of the founders’ desire to unite respect for matcha’s traditional roots with affordability, accessibility and ease of use. Their mission is to revolutionise the way the world perceives this nutritious and delicious powder – from “old-fashioned tea” to “superfood”.
