Gluten-Free Vegetarian Enchiladas

A HealthspirationalMIT original recipe. I’ve become a vegetarian this past week after finding out how the US cultivates meat. Until it changes, I’ll stick to produce. Sorry I haven’t posted anything new in a while - started a new job and it’s been a little crazy. Anyway, I was craving enchiladas because they’re cheesy, delicious, and pretty easy to fill with veggies so I made these beauties. I can’t wait to dig in! :D

Makes 11 enchiladas.

Ingredients:

Sauce -

3 cups Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth

1 cup Tomato Paste

1/4 cup Gluten-Free Flour (I used Oat Flour)

2 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1/4 tsp Turmeric

1/4 tsp Onion Powder

1/4 tsp Chili Powder

Pepper to taste

Enchilada -

11 large Gluten-Free Tortillas 

15oz Organic Black Beans, rinsed and drained

3 ears small/medium Yellow Corn, kernels removed and set aside

2 cups Baby Spinach

6 stalks Green Onions, sliced

2 medium Tomatoes, diced

1 tbsp Dried Cilantro

2 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Turmeric

1/2 tsp Black Pepper

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

3-4.5 cups Organic Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese (Replace with vegan cheese or omit to make vegan enchiladas instead)

Directions:

Sauce -

In a medium sauce pan, add a splash of olive oil, tomato paste, flour, and spices. Whisk over medium heat. Slowly pour in vegetable broth while whisking. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 8 minutes or until thickened. Set aside.

Enchiladas -

In a large pan, wilt the 2 cups of spinach (about 1-2 minutes) with a little coconut oil to prevent sticking. 

In a large bowl combine the spinach, black beans, corn, green onions, tomatoes, spices and 1.5-2 cups of cheese.

Take each tortilla and heat for 30-45 seconds in the microwave (makes them more pliable and less likely to tear).

Lightly spray a 9x13” pan and an 8x11” pan with olive oil and spoon a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of both pans. Set the oven to 375F.

Add a generous scoop of the vegetable mixture to the center of the tortilla and wrap tucking in the sides. Place seam down into the baking pans. Repeat until all tortillas are filled and pans are filled. Pour the sauce evenly over all the tortillas. Sprinkle 1-3 cups of cheese over all the tortillas. Use as much or as little cheese as you prefer - I like lots of cheese. Garnish with green onions or cilantro if you wish. 

Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes in the center rack of the oven. Serve and enjoy! Cover with tin foil and refrigerate for up to a week.

I have never been more disgusted by our species then at this moment. I’m not against eating meat but the institutionalized cruelty and abuse we subject these peaceful and innocent creatures to is unimaginably evil. I never realized it was this horrendous and you know what it’s probably because I chose to be willfully ignorant of what goes on but after seeing this I can’t be. If eating meat was more like it was back in ancient times where you had to hunt it down yourself, kill it, thank it for it’s life and it’s sacrifice so that you could survive, and every piece of it was utilized in someway instead of being discarded, I wouldn’t have an issue with it. But this mass production and unnecessary cruelty is beyond anything I could have imagined. If we subjected say cats, or dogs, or hamsters to these types of conditions everyone would be in an uproar but because we’ve been brainwashed to think certain animals matter more than others we completely ignore this. Suffering is suffering no matter how you choose to spin it.
