Vegan Enchilada Lasagna is the easiest way to make enchiladas – just stack and bake! Filled with corn, sweet potatoes, and black beans with an easy sauce!
Today we have stacks on stacks on stacks of delicious enchilada layers that are filled with tender potatoes (both regular and sweet!), hearty black beans, and sweet summer corn, all smothered in an easy sauce that is infused with fragrant spices. Then topping these with some buttery avocado and fresh cilantro does not hurt one bit!
I promise, promise you won’t even miss the cheese!
Enchiladas are the bomb! We all get it. But they take so much time. Make the filling, fill the tortillas, roll each one, repeat a zillion times while trying not to tear the tortillas, and then bake them for what seems like forrrrrrrrever!
The solution? Ditch the filling and rolling and use a semi-homemade sauce that still brings big time flavor. Aka, this Vegan Enchilada Lasagna. Reporting for for dinner in just 40 minutes.
It all starts with a light sauté of the veggies while you heat up store bought enchilada sauce and infuse it with extra spices to make it taste like you slaved away on it all day and made it from scratch.
Then we combine the two in the perfect marriage of flavors and spoon it between tortilla layers. Then all there is left to it is a quick 20 mintue bake in the oven before you can slice, serve, and dig on in.
Bonus! This dish can easily be assembled in advance so it can be kept in the refrigerator overnight. Then right before you need dinner, just pop the enchiladas into the oven. Easy peasy and delicious.
Leftovers are pretty scarce for this dish in my house, but if you manage to save a few servings, they keep beautifully in the refrigerator and reheat like a dream.Print
