Amy’s Organic Mexican Inspired Veggies & Black Beans Review

Amy's Organic Mexican Inspired Veggies & Black Beans

Although we’re always eager to try new products from Amy’s Kitchen, we were especially excited about Amy’s Organic Mexican Inspired Veggies & Black Beans once we saw that it was made with a cashew sauce. Not only are cashews a great sauce of protein, but Amy’s always does great things with nuts. We hoped that the chipotle peppers in the sauce would make it even tastier.

It’s possible to cook this dish in the oven — or your toaster oven — but we took the quick and easy route and nuked it in the microwave. Just toss it in while it’s still wrapped in plastic, remove the plastic and give it a stir, and then heat it up for a little longer. Your meal will be ready to eat in around five minutes. You might want to stir it again before you dig in; our sauce was clustered on one side of the bowl even after we’d finished cooking it.

The cashew sauce is nutty and appealing creamy, but it also has a great smoky flavor to it. Many of the veggies in this dish, like the orange sweet potatoes and yellow zucchini, are slightly sweet, creating an unusual and appealing combination of flavors. The fire-roasted corn and cauliflower rice help to give the dish a nice crunch.

This meal seems like it’s designed to address every dietary concern under the sun. It’s vegan, gluten-free, and can even be enjoyed by people with soy allergies! Even though it’s a lightweight meal, it’s pretty filling thanks to the nutrient-dense cashews.

The Amy’s Organic Mexican Inspired Veggies & Black Beans has an unusual flavor that we really enjoyed. If you like cashew sauce as much as we do, we definitely recommend checking this one out. We wouldn’t quite call it spicy, but it has a bold flavor that we really enjoy.
