Cheesy Vegan Enchiladas

Although this is not a baked good, it is a very good recipe! I figured since it was going to be a couple weeks before my next cake I'd share a few delicious dishes instead. I love going to and this is where I found this recipe. I modified it a bit because I did not have all the ingredients. It turned out delicious! I made them for my omnivore mom and I for lunch and she loved them. She didn't even add any real cheese which to me means it's a perfect vegan dish! One more note about the recipe. I only used 2 cans of beans and only 6 tortillas and I still had about 2-3 cups of the filling left!

Cheesy Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups water
1 teaspoon mustard
4 tablespoons margarine
10 tortillas
2 small cans enchilada sauce
3 cans beans (white kidney, pinto, black), drained
2 medium onions, chopped 1 can olives, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro(I used dried parsley), 1/2 cup salsa (optional)

I also added about a cup of diced, sautéed mushrooms

In medium-large saucepan, combine flour, nutritional yeast, salt and garlic powder. Add water and mix thoroughly. Heat on medium heat until bubbling and thick. Remove from heat and add mustard and margarine. Set aside 1/2 cup of cheese sauce in separate container. Add onion, beans, olives, cilantro and salsa to sauce. Mix it up. **Pour a 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Place a tortilla in pan and cover in enchilada sauce. Spoon in filling. Roll and push to one end of pan. Continue until all tortillas filled. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce on top and then spread reserved cheese sauce on as last step. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until brown, 30-45 minutes. Makes: 6 servings, Preparation time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 30-45 minutes

** I would add a little more than a 1/2c since some of my enchiladas stuck to the dish.

I topped mine with some mashed up avocado with a little lime juice. A very filling, tasty dish. Enjoy!

On a non-food related matter, I am very happy to announce that Joanna is finally 100% healthy and has gained 40g since the last time she was at the vet! Her amputated tail and toe are all healed, she no longer has pneumonia, and she is shedding and growing like a pretty baby Savannah monitor should!
