I know we’ve all been there. A certain is in aroma in the air, and all of a sudden, in comes the grand idea to make a hearty Mexican meal. After a few minutes of mental conversation, you decide you really want enchiladas, but you just don’t have the patience. Well, I’ve got the recipe for you!
Enchilada lasagna has all of the flavor and goodness of regular enchiladas but only 10% the hassle. I absolutely love this recipe because it’s simple. You sauté a few ingredients, you create layers, and you pop it in the oven. Simple! So simple in fact, it’s become one of my go to meals when I’m having company over. I’ve cooked this vegan meal for so many omnivores who are down right shocked that it is completely satisfying without any animal products.
Still not convinced? It tastes just as amazing, if not even better, as leftovers! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Cheers & happy eating!

I’ve been busy preparing my vegetable seedlings for summer. I’m so excited to garden this year—albeit slightly intimidated by the seemingly never-ending steps in the process. My basement officially looks like I’m a doomsday prepper, complete with 3 hanging shop lights and over 100 plants. I’m hoping that even in my first year I’ll ‘break even’ by producing my own vegetables, but I’ll admit it’s not the cheapest hobby to start.
I took a break from separating my seedlings to round up the freshest savings for the week. There are many new rebates and coupons right now, including one for $1.00 off Kite Hill vegan cheese! If you haven’t tried Kitehill, I urge you to pick some up on your next grocery run! The cheese has a light, rich texture that doesn’t disappoint!
Additionally, I know I’m probably late in the game, but I recently started going to Aldi’s for limited canned goods and produce. This week they even had three packs of tri-color peppers for $1.89. That’s way better than other grocery stores, including Trader Joes. I’m also pleasantly surprised by the quality. They were fresh and lasted over a week! Check out all the latest coupons and deals below!
I was in the middle of a Target run and recently had a cart stopping experience. I saw Thomas PIZZA BAGELS! And they happen to be vegan. Who doesn’t have fond memories of making pizza bagels in college? But now, the bagel is already preseasoned to get the pizza party started. Start your week off right with the perfect scrumptious lunch or late night snack!
1 Thomas Pizza Bagel
¼ cup pizza sauce (I used Muir Glenn’s)
¼ cup Daiya mozzerella cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place the two halves of the pizza bagel on a baking sheet.
Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the insides of the pizza bagel halves.
Sprinkle with Daiya and whatever additional topping you like.
Try green peppers, onion, or basil!
Cook for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted to your liking.
These are on shelves for a limited time only so go get some while they last!
I’m Italian, and I love pasta. However, I try to limit the amount of carbs I eat throughout the week so I tend to save some of my favorite Italian meals for special treats and holiday dinners. I usually make a hearty vegan lasagna for Christmas dinner, but this year I have been planning to make vegan stuffed shells. Continue reading “A Vegan Holiday: Recipe Stuffed Shells”→
