If you are looking for vegan food recipes, these Vegan Black Bean Gorditas are the solution. The gorditas are a Mexican appetizer, usually made of fried pork rinds. This time we took on the task of making a much healthier version, since they are made with an easy dough cooked in a comal and stuffed with a stew of beans with zucchini, corn and chili, practically a vegan version, ideal for a No-Meant Monday.

Don't miss out trying these delicious Vegan Gorditas, a Mexican appetizer that is common to find in market stands. Remember that to have a perfect gorditas, it isn't necessary to over mix the dough, since you would activate the gluten of the flour and it would make the dough very elastic, it will contract very easily and will be difficult to shape them.

Ingredients

6 portions
  • 2 cups flour, for the dough
  • 1 teaspoon salt, for the dough
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda, for the dough
  • 100 grams vegetable shortening, for the dough
  • 1/2 cups Water, for the dough
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/4 cups onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cups pumpkin, in cubes
  • 1/2 cups corn kernels, yellow
  • 1/2 cups tomtato, in cubes
  • 1 serrano pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 cup pinto beans, cooked, without broth
  • 1/4 cups mashed tomatoes
  • enough salt, to season
  • enough black pepper, to season
  • 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • enough guacamole, To accompany

Preparation

For the dough, in a bowl mix the flour with the salt, the baking powder, the butter and add the warm water little by little. Knead until it has a firm consistency and doesn't stick in your hands. Rest 10 minutes.
On a floured surface, spread the dough to ½ cm thick and cut with a cookie cutter 5 to 7 cm (2-3 inches) in diameter. Cook them on a griddle over low heat about 7 minutes on each side or until they are cooked. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat and add the onion, add the garlic, zucchini, corn, tomato and chili, cook a few minutes. Add the beans, the tomato puree, cook 5 minutes or until the liquid is reduced and season with salt, pepper and cumin. Remove from the fire.
With a knife cut the gorditas in half without reaching the other end, fill with the stew of beans and serve with guacamole.

PRESENTATION

Accompany with guacamole and fresh water.

TIPS

When you fill the gorditas, try not to put the liquid in the filling to prevent them from soaking. I recommend filling them right before consuming.
