Super-easy and healthy enchiladas (VG, GF option, Oil Free)

So Chris did the honours and shared our very first recipe here, which is one of our favourite brunch options. That frittata is the best thing to have on a Sunday morning, whether it’s sunny or rainy.

Another recipe we fell in love with is inspired by The Happy Pear’s vegan oil-free enchiladas. We love Steve and Dave, and not only for their delicious recipes, but also for their life philosophy and upbeat nature. The first time we made this, we didn’t have any corn so we used kidney beans instead, and we really loved how they turned out. It’s a delicious, healthy and hearty recipe. We’ve since tried it with corn too and also with butter beans (pictured below), and whilst they are still super tasty, our favourite version is still the one with kidney beans. To make it gluten free, simply swap the wholewheat tortillas with corn ones. We’ve also made a couple of small tweaks to the cashew cream sauce – hope you enjoy it 🙂
