Vegetarian Enchiladas

Enchiladas vegetariennes

For our weeknight dinners, my boyfriend and I try to eat vegetarian meals as often as possible. First of all, we just love vegetables, but most of all we are trying to cut down on the amount of meat we eat. We also love to eat Mexican! So here’s the perfect combination, a Mexican dinner that’s also vegetarian! My enchilada recipe is fast and simple! To be even faster, you can buy a commercial salsa instead of making your own.

Enchiladas

  • 1 can (580 ml) black beans, rinsed and drained

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400oF (200oC).
  2. To make the salsa, combine all the ingredients in a blender and reduce to a purée. Season with salt and pepper. Place the salsa in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. To make the enchiladas, in a non-stick pan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the zucchini and red bell pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, and then add the garlic. Cook for 30 seconds longer.
  4. Add the tomatoes, black beans, chilli powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. In an ovenproof baking dish, coat the bottom with half the salsa.
  6. On a working surface, garnish each tortilla with 1/10 of the black bean and vegetable mixture. Add 1/10 of the mozzarella cheese. Roll up and place in the ovenproof dish. Cover with the remaining salsa and cook for 10 minutes.
  7. To serve, garnish with sour cream, feta cheese, green onions, and coriander.

Enjoy!
