Vegan Chilli Enchiladas & Butternut squash queso’ish topping
Enchiladas have always been a favourite meal, I love the fact you can prepare earlier and pop in the oven when you’re ready to eat. They are also great for using leftovers. But what about Vegan Enchiladas. Making the recipe into a vegan recipe isn’t difficult we often make this the next day with our Vegan Lentil Chilli leftovers. But then theres the cheese, now cheese can make a dish and when I first cut out dairy finding a vegan alternative was touch. Often the Vegan cheeses struggle with a melting point. I then came across The Thug Kitchen books and their Butternut Squash Queso’ish Dip and wow! Who needs cheese?
On an added note if you are looking for inspirational Vegan recipes (and are not easily offended) then these books are a must buy! Its like meaty vegan cooking (if that makes sense!)
