Veggie Vegan Enchiladas

vegan enchiladas-11

Nashville got MORE snow last night.  It was cute the first time around but now I’m REALLY over it. For anyone relatively new to this blog, you should know that I’m a giant baby when it comes to the cold. I’m just simply not a fan.

I did however take my new camera outside yesterday as the sun was going down and took ~100 pictures of the dogs and chickens playing in the snow. By “playing” I mean that the dogs just kept eating it and the chickens let the snow accumulate on their backs to a certain point before shaking it all off in a very goofy looking manner. I failed to accurately capture either of these in my photos. I did snapchat the chickens annihilating a tomato in the snow, though. (do you follow me on snapchat @bbritnell?? I’m newly obsessed!)

MY LATEST VIDEOS

To stay warm, we’re eating lots of comfort food that’s simultaneously packed with lots of nutrient rich veggies AND covered in a bit of vegan cheese and this yummy homemade enchilada sauce.

And wait, can we just talk about the word “healthy” for a minute? I’m doing my best to shift my mind (and my blog) away from the word “healthy” and more towards the word “nutritious” when talking about food. I feel like “healthy” is so subjective and confusing of a word these days. However, “nutritious” is pretty straight forward, right? I won’t make the claim that these enchiladas are healthy but I will tell you that they’re loaded with lots of veggies and beans and topped with fresh herbs and all of ???????????????? equals a good dose of your daily nutrients.

mmkay. Back to the recipe.

I suggest making the enchilada sauce HOMEMADE and doing so a day or more in advance. This isn’t vital to the recipe or anything but it just makes everything a bit easier.

After that, it’s just a matter of sautéing all of the veggies.

You could pretty much do any veggies that you want in this one. I went with mushrooms, red pepper, onion, jalapeno, and garlic.

Then you just stuff the tortillas with the beans and the veggies and top with a bit of vegan cheese before rolling the enchiladas up and placing them face down in the casserole pan. Full disclaimer: flour tortillas are less likely to tear BUT I really prefer corn tortillas for my enchiladas. Either will work just fine.

Once all of the tortillas are in the pan, just top with the enchilada sauce and then with the remaining vegan cheese.

  1. I also love the corn tortillas more than the flour but find them hard to work with. Any tips or should I just stick to the flour for recipes like this?

    • I’ve found that if you heat the corn tortillas up in the microwave for just about 20 seconds, it makes them a bit easier to work with and less likely to tear. Also, when mine tear, I find that it’s usually a smallish tear and that they still work okay so I just go with it knowing that they might not be the prettiest but they’ll still be tasty :)
