  • 1 tsp olive oil

Enchilada Sauce:

  1. Prepare all the ingredients: Dice the onion, chop the tomato, slice the capsicums, and mince the garlic. Soak the cashews.

  2. To make the sauce: In a large pot, heat the oil to medium, add red onion and garlic and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add bell pepper flakes and black beans. Mix well and sauté for 3 more minutes.

  3. Add capsicum, tomato and vegetable stock. Stir well and simmer for about 15 minutes.

  4. In the meantime, make the sauce: in a medium saucepan, heat the oil to medium. Add tomato paste and spices. Fry for 3 minutes – until it darkens and becomes fragrant. Add diced tomatoes and passata. Bring to boil and simmer on medium heat for 10 more minutes – until it has thickened.

  5. Make cashew sauce: in a food processor, place all the ingredients for the cashew sauce and blend until very smooth, this should take a few minutes. Preheat the oven to 170’C.

  6. In an oven dish, spread ¼ cup of the enchilada sauce. Place the 1st tortilla wrap. Place ¼ of the filling and cover with a tortilla wrap. Repeat with the remaining filling and wraps.
