The Happy Herbivore Meal Plan–Easy Enchilada Bake

This is pretty good, although I would double the enchilada sauce. The entire recipe seems to make more than 4 servings in reality. It's great with a dollop of vegan sour cream on top. With eating a smaller serving, I think you would balance out the calories of the added sour cream and the extra sauce. (I used the Happy Herbivore Enchilada Sauce on page 260 and reduced the chili powder a little.)

Changes I made: I added the corn into the enchilada layers. I cooked half in the microwave and half in the toaster oven. I used more olives than called for.

Changes I would make in the future: Double the sauce–it seems a little dry. Add the sauce in each layer. Use whole black beans instead of refried. Whole beans would be easier to add to each layer. Maybe throw in a little Daiya cheese in each layer, watching out for total calorie count.

The Man and Me: Liked it. Thought it was a little dry.
The Girl: Tried it, but said the sauce "Tasted funny."
