Black Bean Enchiladas

I am going to have to give credit to Jamie Oliver for inspiring me to make these black bean enchiladas. While his may look and taste SO much better than mine, I have managed to simplify the recipe and turn it into a quick and easy weekday dinner.

I have always loved enchiladas and I gotta admit, I used to buy the frozen ones that you re-heat in the oven - this was way before I knew any better! 

TIP - check the wraps that you buy and make sure they contain no nasty ingredients. A lot of wraps in the supermarket contain vegetable oils, sugar and loads of other food chemicals that just don't need to be in there. See below for the brand that I used, I bought them from my local health shop and some supermarkets also stock them :) 


Black Bean Enchiladas

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • A pinch of chili powder
  • 1 red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 heaped cup of finely chopped cauliflower
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 handful of coriander, chopped
  • Juice of a lime
  • ½ tsp of Himalayan salt
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 4 large wraps - I used this brand 
  • 80g feta cheese or grated cheese (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a pan on medium heat and cook the onion until soft. Add the garlic, spices, capsicum, cauliflower and cook for 5 minutes stirring regularly. 
  3. Add the black beans, coriander, lime juice, salt and 1/4 cup of the tinned tomatoes. Stir to heat through. Season to taste with pepper and extra salt if needed.
  4. Using 4 large wraps or 8 small wraps, roll up the black bean mixture and place each wrap in an oven-proof dish. 
  5. Cover with remaining tinned tomatoes, coriander and feta cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Serve with avocado and tahini yoghurt dressing as an option. 

Serves 3-4
