Amy’s Black Bean Enchilada

Posted in Food & Recipes, Product Review by nicolejanaye on August 18, 2010

I’m generally not someone who takes use of microwave meals. However, when you’re in the mood for a quick, warm, healthy meal, Amy’s products are a good choice.

I chose the light in sodium, black bean, vegetable enchilada. It’s made with organic tortillas, black beans and a medley of organic vegetables; it contains 190 mg of sodium compared to 390 mg in Amy’s regular black bean vegetable enchilada.

I have to say I was pretty impressed with this dish. The sauce covering the enchiladas had a little kick but wasn’t too spicy. The vegetables and tofu wrapped inside where actually identifiable compared to other microwavable dishes. There was plenty of tofu in the dish so I knew I was getting a good amount of protein. It was a quick 5 minutes in the microwave and then straight to my mouth.  Amy’s Kitchen is a natural, no GMO company that produces hundreds of different meal options. I’d recommend this one for a tasty, vegan, quick dish.
