8 corn tortillas
For the Filling:
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
4 cups sliced mushrooms
2 cups chopped cauliflower
1/2 cup diced tomato
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
For the Cheezy Sauce:
3/4 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


In a large saute pan, heat the chili powder, cumin, coriander, cardamom, paprika and black pepper for 1 minute. Add onions and garlic and cook for 2 minutes adding a small amount of water as needed to prevent sticking. Add bell peppers, cauliflower and mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add tomato.

To soften corn tortillas, wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave for 1 minute or until warm and flexible. Place about 1/2 cup filling on each tortilla. Roll up and place in a baking pan that has been lightly wiped with oil.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

To make Cheezy Sauce, combine ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Gradually add an additional 2-3 tablespoons of non-dairy milk if needed to adjust consistency.

Cover enchiladas with sauce and bake for 25 minutes. Garnish with cilantro.

You're going to want to make at least a double batch of the Cheezy Sauce as it is great on darn near everything.

Definitely making this but like Suz's Bean Enchilada Bake, layering the tortillas so I can slice it up easier for weekly meal prepping!

I was in the mood for Mexican tonight so we made this.  I doubled all the spices for both the filling and the sauce from 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp, except the black pepper-- increased it from 1/4 tsp to a heaping tsp.  Excellent meal!

Looks good but I am surprised there is no nutritional yeast in the Cheezy Sauce
