Enchilada Bowl w/ Spicy Tofu

Updated: Jan 18, 2019

I grew up eating white. In fact, I’m not even sure I knew there was such a thing as brown rice. Someone probably told me about it when I was in my late teens. Or I read about it in some diet. And I probably thought, “what the heck is this brown rice stuff?”



Our family wasn’t into nutrition and everyone pretty much eats the same kinds of food. hHowever, somewhere along the way I was exposed to different people and the foods they eat. I fell in love with brown rice and the ways to use it in ethnic dishes that are so healthy and delicious. You know what they say, spice is the variety of life. Well, this recipe’s got a lot of spice going on. I love healthy toppings like these that not only add flavour, but healthiness too. Oh, and colour. We eat with our eyes, people!



Mexican food gets a bad rap because it can be laden with unhealthy ingredients, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Today we’re turning traditional enchiladas into healthy bowls. Two words: Cheesy. Spicy. Two more words: Heck. Yesssss. Not only are these vegan enchilada bowls super on trend, they’re also packed with flavour, nutrients, and amazing textures!



This is my kind of bowl. Filling, full of different textures, spicy, loaded with plant protein and more importantly packed with flavour. These bowls are loaded with black beans, green lentils and rice in a luxurious chili-cheese sauce. Think of it like deconstructed enchiladas in a bowl. With recipes like this, being whole-grain plant-based eating is not only easy, but extremely tasty. You can feel comfortable loading up on it because, even though it’s loaded with taste, there is little sodium and no preservatives or other ingredients you can’t pronounce!



The sauce really is the star of these bowls. So if you are looking for a healthy and satisfying meal, look no further. This recipe comes together in just 30 minutes and makes 4 generous servings. It’s a great and flavorful meal for a weeknight dinner. Plus leftovers reheat really well!
