Servings8 large enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 2 fire-roasted red bell peppers (or 1 fresh bell pepper)
  • 1 cup sweet corn, cooked (frozen, canned, fire-roasted, etc.)
  • 15 oz. can white beans (I use cannellini)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 8 large tortillas*
  • 16 oz. salsa verde/tomatillo salsa (I use mild)
  • Optional: vegan shredded cheese, nutritional yeast

Toppings (optional):

  • Fresh cilantro, green onion, avocado, tomato, corn, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C).
  • Dice onion, zucchini, tomatoes (excess juice removed), and roasted bell peppers.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion for 5-6 minutes. (I use 3 Tbsp. water/broth for no-oil sauté method, adding more liquid as needed.)
  • Add cumin and garlic powder. Sauté 1 minute.
  • Add zucchini, tomato, pepper, and corn. Stir and sauté 6 minutes, or until zucchini is tender.
  • Rinse and drain white beans. Add to skillet.
  • Roughly chop spinach and add to skillet. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Salt/pepper mixture to taste if desired. Turn off stove.
  • Distribute the bean mixture evenly down the center of each tortilla. Top with a sprinkle of vegan shredded cheese or nutritional yeast (optional). Then roll up tightly, tucking in both ends.
  • Place enchiladas seam side down in a 9"×13" pan. Evenly coat the top with salsa verde.
  • Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes.

Notes

*Tortillas: I use large burrito-sized tortillas. (This is made gluten-free with your favorite GF tortillas.)
Corn tortilla option: These are a great GF/oil-free option as well. You’ll need about 12-16 corn tortillas. However, you may want to turn it into an enchilada casserole and layer/stack the filling and tortillas for easier assembly.
