The Best Vegan Enchiladas Ever

This recipe is simple, with very few ingredients and there's no cheese-substitute anywhere. I honestly don't know how one could make a more-perfect enchilada! Perhaps you can improve on the tortillas by making them from scratch, or finding a better sauce by making it from scratch. While I definitely love vegan cheese (homemade nut-based as well as pre-made), it's just not part of this recipe because I don't see a need for it and I think it would detract from what makes this recipe good. I don't think you'll miss the cheese, but if you do you know what to do. You really can use any enchilada sauce that you want. But be aware that store-bought sauces are wildly different in taste. I'm picky about the sauce, so I stick to either the Simply Organic red sauce packs, or the Green Chile Enchilada Sauce by Hatch.

Yields: 8 Servings
Instructions:
Note that if you want or need gluten-free enchiladas, you should be able to accomplish that in this recipe by just using gluten-free corn tortillas.

Ingredients:

1 can 15 oz can tomato sauce
2 packages Simply Organic Enchilada Sauce
1 onion
10 ounces mushrooms (This is approximate and feel free to use any mushrooms you prefer (white, baby bella, etc))
1 can sliced olives (medium sized can)
1 package Butler Soy Curls (8 oz package)
8 tortillas

Steps:

These are the ingredients you’ll need. I’ve probably never used the same exact combination twice, so if you like baby bella mushrooms more than white, go for it!
Soak the Butler Soy Curls for 10 minutes in warm water to re-constitute, and then drain. Note that you can use any chicken-like fake meat here such as Beyond Meat or Gardein, but I’ve tried those in this recipe and there is just something special about the Butler Soy Curls.
While the soy curls are re-constituting, chop the onions and mushrooms.
Get your sauce started if you’re making it from the sauce packs, you might have to simmer it for a while to get the chunks out and for it to be very smooth.
Cook the Butler Soy Curls in a pan with some butter or oil, over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until browned evenly. You can add any desired seasoning here such as salt, cumin or “chicken” seasoning.
Saute mushrooms over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Then add onions for about 5 minutes until a bit soft but still crunchy.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine cooked soy curls, cooked mushrooms and onions, sliced olives, and 1 cup of the enchilada sauce in a bowl and mix.
Line the bottom of your baking pan with a layer of sauce, then assemble your enchiladas seam-side down, and fill up the pan. I use a spoon to make sure I get sauce all over the enchiladas and in between them, the sauce should cover everything!
Place enchiladas in the pre-heated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the sauce becomes bubbly.

Serve and optionally top with vegan sour cream, avocado, and more olives!

It’s that simple, enjoy!

I'm Scott, and I started this site with the intention of creating a central hang out for veg*ns, and as a resource for anybody interested in learning more about vegetarianism. I believe that compassion towards animals and a plant-based lifestyle can go mainstream, and I'm doing my best to help that happen. When I'm not designing and building websites,I love spending time with my friends and family, cooking (trying to at least), watching movies and binge-watching TV shows, and spending time outside. My favorite eateries in the Seattle area are currently Wayward Vegan Cafe, and the No Bones About It food truck. I'm kind of a music fanatic, if you'd like to see what I'm listening to here's my Last.fm profile: http://www.last.fm/user/nombrecinq
