Sweet Potato, Red Bean + Kale Enchiladas w/ Smoky Sweet Pepper Sauce & Coriander Chimichurri | Veggie num num

Sweet potato is one of my absolute favourite ingredients and we usually eat it every week, sometimes more than once, in lots of different forms. Years ago, when we lived on a bigger piece of land, we had a sweet potato patch that covered a good corner of our yard. It produced loads of the beautiful purple skinned variety with their perfect sweet taste, most especially good for baking.

I’ve used sweet potato in both tacos and quesadillas before so it was time to add them to another favourite, the enchilada. While I’m pretty sure what we call an enchilada here in Australia is quite different to a traditional Mexican enchilada, I’m going to go ahead and call these enchiladas anyway.

Basically we’ve got cumin roasted sweet potato and grilled corn, rolled up in a soft tortilla with a red bean hummus and braised kale all topped off with a smoky sweet pepper sauce and zingy coriander chimichurri, trust me it’s all pretty dang good.

It takes a little time to put together the different elements of this vegetarian enchilada recipe, but the added effort to make everything from scratch really pays off. The flavours are smoky and robust and match perfectly with the fresh and zingy chimichurri.

I used a combination of purple skinned sweet potato and kumara here, but either would work well. Both corn or wheat tortillas are perfect for this dish and use your favourite vegan cheese if you avoid dairy.

These vegetarian enchiladas are full of flavour and make a great family dinner accompanied with a quick fresh tomato salsa and/or some Mexican rice. Or serve them up to your friends for a veg friendly Mexican feast.. enjoy!!

Whether you turn this vegetarian recipe into a sub or simply serve the eggplant balls accompanied by the salad is up to you. I’m thinking they’d make a pretty great burger too, simply shape into patties and serve with the salad and sauce on toasted Turkish buns. [...]
