Hello & Happy Friday!!






One of my favorite large dishes is to make is enchiladas. However, if you know anything about that dish, the tortillas become soggy and let’s not get started about the refined carbohydrates. That being said, these vegan Zucchini Jackfruit Enchiladas were a no brainer! From a distance the thought sounded off-putting. Will the flavor be there? Will they hold up in the oven? and the answer is.. YES. 


What’s fab about this dish is, everything! It’s quick, easy, has minimal ingredients, flavorful, has texture, doesn’t featured the standard white tortillas, can be packed with beans if you’re craving some carbs, has aesthetic appeal, can easily be made in bulk, holds up days later, and is my newest obsession!


If you’re searching for a fresh modern take on a classic enchilada dish, you have to try my vegan Zucchini Jackfruit Enchiladas!
