What took me so long!? I finally made the Potato-Kale Enchiladas from "Veganomicon." Hot Damn! The enchilada sauce is so delicious. The filling is so amazing. It reminded me of a mexi version of the blitva s krumpirom dish that we fell in love with in Croatia last year.
The only downside? The book said this would take me about an hour, but it took me at least two hours! That's not always a problem, but my poor grandpa didn't get to eat dinner until 8 pm! Lucky for me, he was a good sport about it. And even with a two hour time investment, I'll definitely make these again. Maybe just for special occassions. That's how good they are. Even Musty, the kale-hating love of my life, loved these babies!
Sorry for the dark picture, it was the best I could do at 8 pm in my grandpa's kitchen with a raging appetite!
There was a little more than 1 cup of that delicious enchilada sauce left over, and I was determined not to let it go to waste. So, for a quick dinner on one of my late teaching nights, I cooked up some quinoa, added about 1.5 cups beans (that I had cooked up the day before), some cilantro, lots of lime juice, and the enchilada sauce. YUM. Served with a rainbow of fresh veggies to mix in with each bite: cabbage, tomatos, red-orange-yellow bell peppers, lime wedges, parsely, and fresh spring onions. I love this kind of dinner!
