Cheesy Black Bean Enchiladas

Enjoy a cheesy, black bean and veg-packed version of this classic Mexican dish! 



  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp dried or fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika 
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 500g/2 cups passata
  • 1 tbsp sugar (ideally brown) 
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • ¾ tsp salt 

Enchilada mix

  • 8 tortilla wraps 
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small-med broccoli, florets removed and cut into small bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 200g baby spinach (optional)
  • 1 tin black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 200g melting vegan cheese, grated (our favourite for melting is the Bute Island Sheese Greek Style) 
  • ½-¾ tsp salt 

Optional decoration: sliced spring onion, guacamole, avocado slices, fresh coriander, fresh chilli, lime juice 



  1. Fry the onions until soft and golden. 
  2. Add the garlic and fry for a further minute. 
  3. Add all spices and cook for 30 seconds. 
  4. Add the passata, sugar, vinegar, salt and simmer on a low heat for 15-20 minutes. You want the sauce to reduce slightly but not too much. 
  5. While the sauce is simmering, make the enchilada mix...
