3. Place 1/3 cup (75 mL) filling and 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegan cheese in each tortilla. Roll up tightly and place seam-side down in baking dish. Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with remaining vegan cheese.

4. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until tortillas are lightly browned and filling is heated through. Sprinkle with green onions.



For gluten-free enchiladas, substitute corn tortillas for flour ones.

Garnish with thinly sliced jalapeño peppers, fresh cilantro or avocado if desired.
