Mexican Veggie Enchiladas – A Meat Free Monday Recipe

This delicious vegetarian recipe with Mexican flavours is so super easy, not to mention healthy. Plus, it’s also lightning fast to put together! It was perfect for our hectic Monday because I cooked the veggies the night before. It’s just one extra pan – no big deal, and I refrigerated it overnight. Everyone knows these kinds of dishes taste even better when left to soak and develop!

When I arrived home the next evening, I just added the wholewheat tortillas on top, sprinkled some grated cheddar over that and popped it in the oven for ten minutes until it was piping hot and the cheese was golden and toasty.
