Add the tomatoes, black beans and chickpeas. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.

    Make the vegan “sour cream”: Place the soaked and drained cashews, avocado flesh, lime juice, water, salt and pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth and silky.

  • Step 4.
