green enchiladas

Overview

Time: 45 minutes
Dishes: large skillet with lid, baking dish (9X13), oven


Hello, hello Dear Readers!

Today's dish is relatively easy to make, given that it is enchiladas! When I was testing my first book, I had a tester make a comment that she thought the enchiladas in that book would be fast and she wondered why she ever thought enchiladas would be fast! I sped up the time for Vegan Bowls, but I wanted to make an enchilada dish that could be quick.

Well, here it is!

I used Gardein, which gets cooked in the pan before the rest of the filling (Quick tip: cook Gardein products with the lid on, from frozen, until golden. It will stay moist and thaw quickly, while becoming golden on the outside.) You can, of course, skip the Gardein and add spinach and zucchini instead, keeping it all vegetables.

The sauce is Green Enchilada sauce from a can, but you won't notice. I used Daiya cheese for this, but again, no issues with skipping it.

Big tip! After rolling the enchiladas, spray with cooking oil to keep the tortillas soft and delicious after baking.

Enjoy!
 


Speedy Cooking Tips:

  • Get all the ingredients out and the baking dish and pan prepared.
  • Cook the Gardein (or sub with zucchini, chopped) while you chop the onions. Use a lid!
  • Preheat the oven when you start cooking the onion, again, use a lid.
  • Cook the tortillas while the filling is cooking. 
  • Use a scooper to fill the enchiladas - easier and less messy.
