I recently found this recipe for Banana Blueberry Bars from Forks Over Knives, and knew I had to try it.

As an added bonus, they are both vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, so they can be enjoyed by everyone.

Enchilada Casserole

Enchilada Casserole

Posted by Anthony on June 4, 2015 in Entree


Serves: 6-8

Time: 1 hour

Difficulty: Easy

I was in the mood for some Mexican food the other day, and found a great, healthy, vegetarian- and vegan-friendly recipe for Enchilada Casserole from Forks Over Knives. It’s a new recipe, so I also used it as a chance to add to my 50 in 15 Challenge. Since it’s a casserole, it’s easier to make than needing to roll individual tortillas or make a separate sauce. The end result was pretty decent, though I realized that when I make it in the future, I need to add some more spices and/or ingredients (such as diced chiles, etc) to help boost the flavor a bit more. I’ve adjusted the recipe here to increase the amount of spices used, as the amount of spices used in the original recipe resulted in a middle-of-the-road flavor. No matter what amount of spice you like though, this recipe is definitely healthy, filling, and worth making.
