1 Boil pumpkin until tender and then mash using milk, adding salt and pepper to taste.
2 Blanch silver beet in a frying pan and set aside (blanch with finely chopped garlic to add more flavour).
3 Place a tortilla in the base of a deep oven dish and layer 1/3 of the chilli beans, mashed pumpkin and silver beet. Repeat this process until you place the last tortilla on top of the stack. Sprinkle grated cheese on top to finish.
4 Cook under the grill for 15-20 minutes. Serve each piece with a dollop of sour cream and enjoy!Recipe supplied by Healthy Food Guide reader, Judy Lane (Auckland)
Judy says: “I discovered this recipe through a shared lunch at work and tweaked it a bit myself. It has become the staple at all family gatherings to satisfy my vegetarian son, and he always makes sure he takes some home with him – it is equally if not more enjoyable the day after.”
