  • 5 large zucchinis, thinly sliced lengthways

2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and oregano, then cook, stirring, for 4 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and taco seasoning, then cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add half the beans, stirring to coat. Remove pan from heat.

3. Using a fork, roughly mash bean mixture. Transfer to a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup cheese and remaining passata and beans. Stir to combine.
