I get asked a lot about what recipe I believe is best to introduce others to this way of eating. And if you are new here, this way of eating is whole food plant based, which is basically a health promoting vegan diet. So when I get asked what I recommend as the best meal to share with others, my easy enchilada bake seems to come up over and over again. I think it really comes down to how easy it is to prepare and the fact that it is so filling. I know that when I was helping to transition my mom and dad to this way of eating, enchilada bakes where a regular meal on the weekly menu. In this enchilada bake I add in a can of shredded jackfruit which I think adds a wonderful texture to an already delicious dish.
Here’s what you will need!
-3 cups cooked brown rice (https://youtu.be/Oks_P32qMxc)
-1 can of jackfruit (15-20 oz)
