  • 2 medium white potatoes
  • 1 C thinly sliced white onion
  • 1 C raw soaked cashews, soaked for 20 minutes in hot water
  • 3/4 C unsweetened nondairy milk
  • 4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • 1/4 C melted vegan butter
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper (can substitute ground black pepper)
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 C vegan mozzarella style shreds
  • extra pinch of sea salt & ground black pepper (between the layers of potatoes)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Slice the potatoes into thin rounds using a mandolin and set aside.
  3. Drain and rinse the soaked cashews and place them in a high-powered blender with nondairy milk, lemon juice, miso, tahini, melted butter, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, arrowroot flour, sea salt, and white pepper and combine until very smooth.

  4. Pour 1/3 of the sauce into a shallow baking dish and spread evenly around the bottom. Then layer potato slices and then onions on top. Sprinkle with some of the fresh thyme and a pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper. Pour another 1/3 of the sauce evenly on top of the first layer, then layer again with potatoes, onions, thyme, sea salt and ground black pepper. Top with the remaining 1/3 of sauce. Sprinkle vegan mozzarella style shreds evenly on top. Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbling, and cooked through.
