Baked all together in the oven these beauties only take 20 minutes to put together, and less if you batch cook beans + my No-Oil Nut-Free Cheese Sauce.

Oil a 9”x9” casserole dish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Make your cheese sauce: Blend sweet potatoes, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, miso and garlic in a high speed blender until smooth. Test to see whether the sauce is the texture you like best. For a thinner sauce add more coconut milk and blend again. Set aside and pour 1 cup of enchilada sauce into the bottom of your prepared dish. Warm tortillas with a little water on a hot pan to make them easier to roll. Add 1/3 cup black beans to each tortillas and roll, placing in the pan on top of the enchilada sauce as you go. Add remaining black beans to the sides of the enchiladas, and pour remaining enchilada sauce on top. Smother in cheese sauce. Bake for 25 minutes uncovered until warmed through and tortillas begin to brown.

Once they are done, drain the water ?Transfer the chickpeas to a food processor along with the cauliflower, garlic cloves, ground spices, green onions, mint leaves, flour & pulse until they are well combined, but not a smooth paste. I like to retain some whole pieces of chickpeas for a bit of texture ?Add salt, pepper, lemon.

Miso thyme glazed tofu aka the best way to cook tofu! Served it up with some roasted asparagus and tahini noodles! So flavourful and quick to make, I’m obsessed with this bowl and at this rate I’m probably going to turn into tahini cause this is my second post featuring it ? Let me know in the comments how you like to enjoy tahini? I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I do! Grab the recipes below, MISO THYME GLAZED TOFU WITH TAHINI NOODLES To make the tofu you will need, Ingredients: 1 350g package @sunrisesoyafoods extra firm tofu pressed and then cut into about 16 triangles. (to press tofu, I just put a pan or pot on top of the tofu and let it sit for 10-15 mins). 1/3 cup veggie broth 1/3 cup soy sauce 2 tbsp mirin 2 tbsp brown sugar 1/2 tbsp miso paste 1/2 tsp ground sage 5-6 sprigs of fresh thyme 1/2 tbsp cornstarch Method: In a small pot add the veggie broth, soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, miso, ground sage, thyme and cornstarch to a small pot and bring that to a boil, then cook for 3 mins on simmer whisking until smooth and slightly thicken, remove from heat and let sit until your ready to use it. Dust tofu triangles,on both sides in 1/4 cup flour and salt and pepper to taste. Heat a large frying pan on medium high heat with 1 tbsp oil, once your pan is hot, add the tofu triangles and cook until golden on both sides. Turn the heat to low and add half the sauce flipping the tofu to combine everything together (the sauce once it hits the hot pan will thicken very fast) adding more sauce as you like. I usually have about 1/3 of the sauce extra for glazing at the end. To make the tahini noodles you will need, Ingredients: 8 ounces @lotusfoods brown rice noodles or soba noodles, cook according to your package directions. 1/3 cup tahini 3 tbsp soy sauce 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice 1 1/2 tbsp mirin 1 tsp sesame oil 1/2 tbsp fresh grated ginger 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes 1/4 cup water to thin Whisk all ingredients above in a bowl, using your hands combine the cooked rice noodles with the sauce to evenly coat, start with half the sauce first then add more to your taste.
