Last night we tried our hand at Vegan Vegetable Enchiladas.  The difference between these enchiladas and “traditional” enchiladas is the lack of meat and dairy.  We substituted both with vegan alternatives.  I’ll admit, the end result doesn’t look very pretty but it tasted amazing! These are packed full of vegetables and have incredible flavor.  We replaced ground beef with chopped mushrooms, added additional vegetables, and used a vegan cheese that tastes very similar to provolone.  If you did a blind taste test, I don’t think you would be able to tell the difference! The recipe can be found here.

Fajita or Burrito Bowls are a super simple, healthy, and filling dinner that come together in little to no time!  I personally like how tasty and customizable they are.  You can make them ahead of time, double the recipe to have leftovers, add and any vegetables or toppings you choose. My version of a Fajita Veggie Bowl is incredibly easy to make!  You start by making a batch of rice, either white or brown, whichever you prefer. While the rice is cooking, slice a few bell peppers and a large onion.  I like to use 2 different colors of bell peppers and a white onion.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the peppers and onion and sauté until tender.
