To prepare the sauce
  1. In a small saucepan, boil the cashews for 5 minutes, then soak for 1 hour. Drain.
  2. Add the cashews, onion, cauliflower, garlic and bay leaf to a small saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover and bring the water to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook at a gentle simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 6 minutes.
  3. Strain reserving a ½ cup of the cooking liquid and discarding the bay leaf.
  4. Transfer to a blender. Add the miso, salt, pepper and on low speed, add the cashew milk. Liquefy the puree adding the reserved cooking liquid if necessary. Keep warm on the stove.
To prepare the roasted vegetables
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment.
  3. Put the peppers and cauliflower in a bowl and flavor with the paprika, oil, salt and pepper. Toss to distribute the flavors and distribute over the baking sheet. Place in the oven and roast for about 10 minutes, turn the vegetables and bake until tender, about 5–10 additional minutes. Remove from the oven when tender and hold warm.
To finish the dish
  1. Heat a sauté pan or wok over medium high heat and add the shallots and mushrooms and dry cook while stirring for 2–3 minutes to wilt the vegetables.
  2. Add the miso, water and chard. Cover tightly with a lid and steam for a minute or two to steam the leaves. Remove the lid and spread the chard mixture over the bottom of a shallow bowl or serving dish.
  3. Mound the roasted vegetables on top and drizzle the sauce around and over the vegetables.
