Amy’s Light in Sodium Black Bean & Vegetable Enchilada Review

Amy's Light in Sodium Black Bean & Vegetable Enchilada

One of the biggest downsides to frozen food is that it’s loaded with sodium, but Amy’s Kitchen is working to combat that by releasing meals that are light in sodium. The Freezer Meal Frenzy staff definitely appreciates this initiative, but we weren’t that impressed with the low-sodium version of their┬áBlack Bean & Vegetable Enchilada.

Like other Amy’s enchiladas, the organic corn tortilla is on the chewy side. The tortilla softens up as it soaks up the enchilada sauce, but that gives it a slightly mushy taste. We thought that the issues with the tortilla detracted from the filling and sauce, which are both fairly tasty.

In spite of the issues with the tortilla, this dish might have been a win for us if it had contained a little more zucchini and a little less corn. There’s so much corn here that it’s almost overpowering. In contrast, bites of zucchini and tofu are hard to come by. The corn just isn’t tasty enough to be a dominant flavor in this dish. There are no side dishes here for contrast, and we got sick of all the corn after a few bites.

Amy’s Kitchen’s Light in Sodium Black Bean & Vegetable Enchilada isn’t delicious, but it isn’t a total disaster either. It’s an acceptable dish with some nice bonus points. If you’re looking for frozen vegan meals that are low in sodium, you might be able to overlook some of these drawbacks. If you’re not watching your sodium intake, however, you can probably find more appealing dishes to try.
