Skillet Tempeh Enchiladas

I love my cast iron skillet and love when I find new ways to make dinner in it. Enchiladas are a favorite meal of mine and I love when I get to make them just for me. No having to please anyone else’s tastes. No accommodations for the meat eater or the kiddo who can’t handle it spicy. This tempeh enchilada is pretty much all me! That doesn’t happen all that often in this house so I like to savor the opportunity when it comes around.

This one’s for you, tempeh fans. Slightly spicy, perfectly saucy, and full of Mexican flavor, this easy to make enchilada is sure to please the entire family.

I customized everything to my liking: from the filling, to the salsa, to the cheese — right down to the type of tortilla.

Here’s what you’re looking at:

  • sauteed crumbled tempeh with my favorite spice trio: chili pepper, turmeric and cumin
  • black beans
  • tons of cilantro
  • red and green salsa
  • spinach tortillas
  • extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • chopped avocado

This one’s for you, tempeh fans. Slightly spicy, perfectly saucy, and full of Mexican flavor, this easy to make enchilada is sure to please the entire family.

It’s ooey, gooey, cheesy and saucy with a little crunch from the baked tortillas — the best combination, in my opinion.

I know what you’re thinking — did she eat this entire skillet? No. I didn’t. It’s actually quite filling from the tempeh and black beans. I had two for dinner and saved the rest for lunch today. Can’t wait to dig in!

Curry Cabbage & Cauliflower Stir Fry + $700 Amazon Giveaway!

Super simple Indian inspired cabbage stir fry recipe with cauliflower rice and peas. Gluten free, low carb and delicious! I fell in love with curry back in Graduate school. It was the late 90’s and I was living in Harrisonburg, Virginia at the time, when JMU was home to a few cozy vegan eateries. I would wait in line for an hour on Sunday morning for The Little Grill’s buckwheat pancakes and homemade falafel and Friday night often included a run to the Indian-American Cafe for Gobi Aloo. I made that dish for years using my Good Housekeeping cookbook, and the smell of curry still reminds me of that time in my life.

Nowadays I like to put a healthy spin on old favorites. This Curry Cabbage & Cauliflower Stir Fry pays homage to my grad school days and my love of all things curry and turmeric.

This stir fry is super simple to make and includes three awesome veggies in one delicious dish. After a quick saute of the shredded cabbage, I added curry, turmeric and cumin — one of my favorite spice trios. Then I stirred in cauliflower rice and frozen peas, which took this stir fry to a whole new healthy level.

Why is this stir fry as good for you as it is delicious? Well, it contains not one, but two cruciferous veggies (the cabbage and the cauliflower) and these guys are well-known nutrition powerhouses. It also contains turmeric, which I add to everything these days (even a smoothie) and can’t stop writing about. Oh, and don’t forget about peas. These kid-friendly legumes are bursting with nutrition goodness, too.

This Curry Cabbage & Cauliflower Stir Fry is: 

  • full of antioxidants
  • anti-inflammatory and cancer preventive
  • super tasty
  • warm and comforting
  • vegan
  • gluten free
  • low carb
  • high in fiber
  • heart healthy

It also requires just 15 minutes and less than 10 ingredients to prepare. Another awesome win in my book.

Here are four ways you can repurpose this stir fry all week long:

  1. add a few scrambled eggs to it for breakfast
  2. create a Buddha bowl with it
  3. serve it inside a lettuce wrap
  4. Mix it with some ground beef or turkey for an Indian Goulash
