I eat a lot of beans, so I have a ton of bean recipes.


Bean and Corn Enchiladas

Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 6-8

Sauce:

2 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
3 cups cold water
4 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons chili powder
teaspoon onion powder
teaspoon garlic powder

Place all ingredients for the sauce in a saucepan. Mix with a whisk until well combined. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Taste and add more chili powder, if desired. Set aside.

10 whole wheat flour tortillas
4 cups mashed pinto beans
1 cup chopped green onions
1 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 2.25 ounce can sliced ripe olives, drained
1-2 tablespoons chopped green chilies
grated soy cheese (optional)

To assemble casserole:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the beans in a large bowl. Add the onions, corn, olives and green chilies. Mix gently until well combined.

Place 1 cups of the sauce in the bottom of a large oblong baking dish. Take 1 tortilla at a time and spread a line of the bean mixture down the center of the tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas, placing them snugly next to each other. Pour the rest of the sauce over the rolled up tortillas, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle a small amount of grated soy cheese over the top, if desired. Cover with parchment paper, then cover with aluminum foil, crimping the edges over the baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for about 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with salsa and tofu sour cream, if desired.

Love this recipe!

Chili non carne

"The first time I made this chili for my vegetarian daughters, they insisted that I had put hamburger into the pot. I hadn't. The pebbly texture and rich flavor come from bulgur (cracked parboiled wheat), which you can find in health food stores, co-ops, Middle Eastern markets and many supermarkets. Fine or medium-grind bulgur gives the best results." -- Frances Price

1 TBS olive or canola oil
1 c chopped onions
3/4 c chopped celery
3/4 c diced carrots
1/2 c chopped green peppers
1 tsp minced garlic
1 TBS chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
16 oz canned diced tomatoes (with juice)
2 c water
16 oz canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed (I used kidney beans instead)
1/3 c bulgur
Salt, to taste

Place the oil in a heavy 2- or 3-qt saucepan. Add the onions, celery, carrots and peppers. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender but not brown. Stir in the garlic, chili powder and cumin; cook for 1 minute.

Add the tomatoes (with juice) and water; bring the chili to a simmer. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour.

Add the beans and bulgur. Cover and cook for 30 minutes, or until the bulgur is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Add salt to taste. Serve hot.

I love meatless meals.
Meatless meals should have the same nutrition value.
When I'll have the time I'll share a recipe.
We have a wonderful food category called: Vegetarian/Vegan recipes
Some great ideas there.
I want to try in the near future to start eating VEGAN one day per week. I wonder how I'll feel and how my body will react to it.

Teresa
Great Challenge!

emoticon For some leaving out the meat is difficult. For others, it comes more naturally.
Sometimes, unless we make an effort it is difficult to know where to begin. If you feel like sharing a favorite feel free to do so. emoticon

That is a good practice. As we learn more about nutrition and what value there is in non-meat foods, making a habit of just adding one meatless dish per week has great benefits. emoticon If you would like, you might want to share your dish or other favorites.
