    • 250g whole button mushrooms
    • 3 small zucchini, chopped
    • 2 cups chopped carrots
    • 3 cups pre-made mashed potatoes
    • 1/4 cup (65ml) olive oil

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:1hour10min  ›  Ready in:1hour30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini and carrots. Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Spread vegetables in a single layer in a shallow baking dish. Roast vegetables in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes; stir halfway through their cooking time. When finished cooking, remove from the oven and reduce oven temperature to 180 degrees C.
    3. In a large bowl, stir the roasted vegetables into the mashed potatoes.
    4. In a dry, nonstick frypan over medium heat, quickly heat each tortilla on both sides to make pliable. Put a large spoonful (or as needed) of potato-veggie mixture along the centre of each tortilla. Top mixture with about 1 to 2 tablespoons cheese, and roll tortillas. Place seam-side down in a 22x33cm baking dish. Pour extra sauce over top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
    5. Bake at 180 degrees C for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, or until the enchiladas are heated through.

    Yep! another success-thanks. Simple - and almost basic - but good with all the veges. I just made a basic tomato sauce (instead of enchilada sauce) out of pureeing tinned tomatoes with a bit of chilli and adding it to some onions and garlic that had been frying, then cooked the whole thing together for 15mins.  -  09 Nov 2008


    Even my picky roommates love this one! It's easy to substitute a variety of veggies to please whatever crowd. If I don't have time for roasting the veggies or don't want to heat up the kitchen by using the oven, it's easy to chop the veggies and throw them in a frying pan with some olive oil. I use a bit of cumin and some chili powder for seasoning and it comes out great!  -  24 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Good starting recipe! All five in our family loved it. We used lavash bread (flat bread) b/c that's what we had on hand, and I made it as a casserole - super easy and good! We are vegetarian - almost vegan(dh has high cholesterol)- and haven't been able to enjoy a casserole type dish for several years now. This is a great way to get that creamy, cheesy type taste without all the fat that you usually find with cream soups and lots of cheese. Homemade enchilada sauce is easy to make and I think it added lots of good flavor that would have be lacking with store bought. We'll definitely make this again, however we will add some seasoning to the veggies - taco seasoning perhaps, or just salt, pepper, cumin like others have suggested. Thanks for the excellent recipe!  -  28 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
