packed with wholesome ingredients like sweet potatoes, cremini mushrooms, and a luscious enchilada sauce, this dish is inspired by delicious Mexican cuisine.
Savor the Flavor: Vegan Enchilada Bake is a plant-powered meal that is inspired by enchiladas but with a twist and it will make your taste buds dance.
the filling is absolutely delicious and incredibly easy to make since it’s pulsed together in a food processor.
once your 1/3 cup diced onion, 2 garlic cloves, 1 large sweet potato cut into cubes, and 8 ounces cremini mushrooms take a whirl in the food processor, a grainy and thick mixture comes to life.
this vibrant blend serves as the heart of our vegan enchilada casserole, infusing each bite with the earthy goodness of mushrooms, the sweetness of sweet potatoes, and the aromatic essence of onion and garlic.
this textured blend brings a hearty feel to our vegan enchilada casserole, with the mushrooms adding a chewy element and the sweet potatoes contributing a soft, velvety touch.
it creates a balanced, comforting texture that complements the robust flavors of the enchilada sauce, making each bite satisfying and substantial.
for the sauce, i used somos enchilada sauce and siete brand enchilada sauce or whole foods brand works well too, all offering a delicious flavor that complements the dish.
choose the sauce that suits your taste preferences and enjoy the simplicity of creating a tasty plant-powered meal.
feel free to explore substitute options for our vegan enchilada casserole.
swap the sweet potatoes for butternut squash or acorn squash, and try white button mushrooms instead of cremini for a different texture.
for the tortillas, choose your favorite gluten-free and grain-free option. i purchased mine at whole foods and they’re almond flour based!
