Verde Enchilada – VEGAN

VEGAN, VEGETARIAN, NUT-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE

We can easily and quickly prepare fresh meals at home by utilizing many of the ready-to-use products available in the market. Today the availability of food staples with clean ingredients has exploded beyond measure and it’s a good sign.

I am showcasing a couple of those ingredients and assembling an amazing restaurant quality dish (or even better!) in under 30 minutes. Baking time takes another 30-40 minutes. A super delicious and healthy meal can be on the table in 1 hour.

https://www.angelicbakehouse.com – I used their Kale Spinach wraps

https://www.sprouts.com/ – Salsa verde – I used Sprouts brand

Taking inspiration from a fellow blogger I ventured out to create an all-green enchilada. 

Ingredients – Kale (green), mushrooms, corn and beans for the filling 

Sprouted spinach (green) tortillas

Salsa verde (green) DUH 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️😜

Keep it easy, tortillas are readily available in a variety of flavor packs with wholesome clean ingredients.

Note- You can use gluten-free tortillas for exact same deliciousness

Make a quick stir-fry of the stuffing ingredients – saute onions, garlic, loads and loads of mushrooms (I used 2 types), corn, black beans and kale. Season them liberally with Bold Taco Seasoning from Penzey’s spices. 

The time to make the filling was 10 minutes. 

The time to wrap and assemble the enchilada took 20 minutes. 

Top them off with plenty of Salsa verde and bake the dish for 30-40 minutes until the enchiladas are nice and bubbly 🙂 

Serve with fresh smashed guacamole… as always 🤪 for us no Mexican dish is complete without ‘gaucu’ 😇

Verde Enchilada

Spinach and Kale tortillas wrapped with a filling made of fresh kale, spinach, mushrooms, corn and black beans. Topped with plenty of salsa verde and baked until bubbling. This may not be the prettiest looking dish, but don’t go by the looks. It is absolutely delicious.
