Mushroom Kale + Black Bean Vegan Enchiladas


  • Yellow Onion
  • Serrano Peppers
  • Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • Kale
  • Black Beans
  • Diced Tomatoes with Chilis (I used Rotel diced tomatoes with habañeros)
  • Vegetable Broth or Water
  • Cumin Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Turmeric
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Avocado Oil or Olive Oil
  • Corn Tortillas (I use the Mission super size taco tortillas)
  • Enchilada Sauce
  • Vegan Cheeze Shreds (I used Daiya Spicy Monterey Shreds)


  1. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pot or pan over medium heat
  2. Saute 1/2 medium onion and 1 serrano pepper, chopped
  3. Once onions softened and nearly translucent, add 1 1/2c chopped or sliced mushrooms
  4. Cook about 2-3 minutes. Season with 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp pepper, pinch of cinnamon
  5. Add 2c chopped kale (I used three handfuls of baby kale and tore it with my hands as I added it to the pot)
  6. Add 1/2 c broth or water
  7. Heat until kale wilts (~3-5 minutes)
  8. Add 1/2 can black beans
  9. Season with 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast, 1/2 tsp turmeric, pinch salt. Mix.
  10. Cook until mix thickens (~4-6 minutes). You can mash some of the black beans (~1/4c) to thicken the mix. Preheat the oven to 400F at this time
  11. Add 1/2 can or 1/4 c Rotel (I used the Hot/spicy version with diced tomatoes + habañeros)
  12. Add 1 tsp garlic powder. Season with more salt + pepper to taste (Rotel and broth will have salt so I only added a pinch initially and did not have to add anymore). Heat another 2 mins for flavors to combine.
  13. Add 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro and mix through. Remove from heat.
  14. Warm the tortillas – you can either place them on a tray into the preheated oven for 2 minutes (until warm, not at all golden or crisp) or warm them up on a nonstick pan over the stove about 1 minute per side per tortilla
  15. Allow tortillas to cool slightly – the heating makes them pliable to avoid cracking and cooling slightly avoids tearing/breakage
  16. Lightly brush an oven proof dish with oil
  17. Pour 2 Tbsp enchilada sauce at the base of the oven dish
  18. Assemble enchiladas: down the center of each tortilla, arrange cheeze shreds, topped with enchilada mix, more cheeze if desired, then roll
  19. Arrange the enchiladas onto the dish — TIP: it helps to place all the open ends (side with the visible tortilla edge) towards one side of the dish so that when you scoop it with a spatula when ready to serve, you can scoop from the rolled/closed side (if you see my pic, even this does not result in perfection but the taste is unchanged so no worries)
  20. Pour 1/4 c enchilada sauce over the enchiladas and ensure entire tortilla has sauce on it (spread it with a spoon or brush to make sure the tortillas get covered). Sprinkle with additional cheese
  21. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cheeze melted and sauce bubbling. Garnish with chopped cilantro and/or additional chopped onions and tomotoes.
  22. Eat immediately!

As with all my dishes, this makes about 2 servings. I only assembled three enchiladas and then refrigerated the rest of the mix for use at a later time – It can easily be used in a quesadilla instead or on nachos or over rice as a burrito bowl
