These yummy beans are a great nacho topping with salsa and some vegan cheese. OR try them in a wrap with lettuce and lots of fresh red onions… sooo good!

Refried Beans – Served your way

Serves 4
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves
¼ tsp chilli powder
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
2 tins borlotti beans, drained
1 tbsp sun-dried tomato paste
100ml vegetable stock

To serve in a wrap:
4 tortilla wraps
½ lettuce, shredded
50g vegan sour cream dip or vegan mayo
50g guacamole
50g vegan cheese

To serve as nachos:
100g tortillas chips
2 spring onion
4 ripe tomatoes
1 chilli, thinly sliced
50g vegan cheese
50g vegan sour cream dip or vegan mayo

  1. To make the refried beans heat the oil and gently fry the onions for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and spices and cook for another minute. If you like extra heat, add a little more chilli powder.
  3. Finally add the beans, tomato paste and vegetable stock.
  4. Simmer for 5 minutes allowing most of the stock to evaporate.
  5. Using the back of a spoon gently break up the beans. Serve the beans as a wrap with nacho or anyway way you fancy.
  6. To serve as tortilla wraps, fill your wraps with the suggested filling and place under a hot grill for a minute or 2 to crisp up the outside for extra texture.
  7. To make the nachos, place a good handful of nacho chips per serving into a heatproof serving dish. Top with a little cheese and place under the grill for a few seconds. Add a few more chips and extra cheese then place under the grill for a few more seconds.
  8. Finally top your nachos with dollops of guacamole, sour cream or vegan mayo, chopped tomatoes, spring onion, chopped chillies and of course the refried beans.

Tofutti’s vegan sour cream is a really, really yummy and worked a treat with this tasty dish (alongside some homemade guacamole).
