Vegan Enchiladas

These Vegan Enchiladas are so yummy and easy to make. You can get creative with the fillings and add in tofu if you like. But this recipe is a healthy vegetable enchilada recipe, packed with good for you ingredients!

I used vegan cheese to fill and top the enchiladas, but if you want to make vegetarian enchiladas you can use cheddar cheese instead.

You can also use flour, or corn tortillas. I find the flour is heartier and my kiddo prefers them. But if you want to cut carbs, or make these gluten-free enchiladas, use the corn instead.

How to Make Vegan Enchiladas

It is easy to meal prep these enchiladas. Simply assemble and bake, then portion out into individual containers and freeze or add to the fridge.

They will hold for a month in the freezer and 4-5 days in the fridge. You can reheat in the microwave, or bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees (I do this and store them in glass containers so I don’t need to move them and create more clean up).
