I have to admit that I usually just throw things together and I definitely don't really follow recipes. I have a lot of recipe books, in fact I love and I am kinda obsessed with recipe books, I am just not very good at following directions perfectly. I approach quilting in the same way, hence why my seams are sometimes off!
In any case, I came across a recipe on Pintrest for a cucumber salad that looked delicious and I felt that I needed to try it out, so that became the basis for my meal upon which I drew inspiration for the rest of the meal. The recipe for the great cucumber salad can be found here: _
Since I was working from home today as I am sick, I didn't really have a plan for supper, but seeing as I am the cook in the family I knew I had to whip up something that would be fast as it was already 5:30pm and I had no plan in mind. I looked in my fridge and drew a blank and then I found a zucchini and went with it. In the end I ended up with some sort of vegetarian enchiladas (minus the sauce) that were delicious.
- 1 Zucchini cut into mid-sized chunks
- 5 crimini mushrooms sliced
- 1/4 red pepper diced
-1/4 yellow pepper diced
- 1 cup of shredded cabbage coleslaw mix
- 2 tbps of chopped fresh cilantro (I am a fan, if you aren't, use less)
- 1/2 cup of black beans rinsed and drained
- 1 tsp of garlic paste
- 2 tsp of freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 tsp of tamari sauce
- pinch of salt
- hot sauce to taste
- 1 tbps of prepared salsa
- 6-8 Tortilla Wrappers (already prepared)
- 1 cup grated cheese (optional)
1. Add chopped/diced/sliced veggies into stir fry pan with 1 tbps of olive oil, and garlic, saute veggies for 5 minutes.
2. Add tamari sauce, salt, cilantro, and beans and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
3. Add salsa, and stir, cook for another minute.
4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
4. Arrange tortillas and fill each tortilla with about 2 tbps of prepared veggies, sprinkle with grated cheese, and wrap (tucking the bottom of the warp up) and add to an 11-13" baking dish which has been either coated with non-stick spray or lined with parchment paper/aluminium foil.
5. Proceed to do the same with remaining tortillas until each are filled and resting in baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining grated cheese, a little cilantro and hot sauce.
6. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
I apologize in advance if the recipe is off in any way, as I said I don't really follow a recipe, but this was so delicious I had to share.
