Vegan Zucchini Enchilada Rolls

 

Enchiladas have such a great blend of Mexican spices and flavors, however traditionally it has meat in it. It took me awhile to come up with this vegan version, but it was worth the time. I used chickpeas in the place of meat and cooked them in the enchilada sauce. I was lazy and bought the enchilada sauce, but you can easily make your own.

As you can see, besides the chickpeas and the taco seasoning, there aren’t many ingredients in it! I strongly encourage you to make your own taco seasoning! It honestly tastes way better than store bought.

After slicing the zucchini lengthwise, spoon a small amount of the chickpea mixture on each zucchini. Roll up and secure with a toothpick while baking. Top with cilantro, enchilada sauce and vegan cheese and you’re all set to bake it. I quickly made guacamole while it was baking to go along with it. Honestly though, I could eat guacamole with everything!
