thank you for all the lovely recipes. I really appreciate the time you take to share all these videos
I have been loving your blog, videos and recipes since my husband and I have gone WFPB. I just made your bean and “cheese” enchilada recipe and wanted to let you know that the cheese sauce recipe as written resulted in a very watery mix for me. Is one cup of water correct? When I removed some of the liquid and added about another 1/2 cup of cashews, it came together perfectly. I’ll let you know how it tastes. It’s cooling down a little right now! It smells absolutely amazing.
Yes, the mixture is a bit wet but that is so it will pour nicely, but if it worked for you with less water that is great too. So sorry this is getting to you so late. Notifications weren’t getting to me.
This sounds and looks so good! Going on next weeks dinner menu!
Hi, I don’t live in the USA and I’m wondering what the weight of a box of tofu is in the recipe. Thanks so much.
These were delicious eaten with a guacamole topping!
Hi Jill,I was wondering if soy milk instead of water for the cheese recipe would make the cheese a little “richer”?
Hi Jill, the recipe above and in your cookbook refers to “1/2 cup enchilada sauce” in the filling but I didn’t see you add enchilada sauce to your filling in the video. Is that supposed to go in the filling? Thanks!
It just tastes better if it is inside the burritos too. =)
Thank you! Going to make them now 🙂
Hi! I’m making this as I’m typing…with a brief pause of course. Could I use tempeh instead of tofu next time I make these? I don’t mind tofu, I was just wondering if you have any thoughts on this. 😊
Yes, tempeh would work great!
What size can of chopped (diced?) tomatoes—14.5 or 28? How much tomato paste is in a can? I buy my tomato paste in a tube. 🙂
Sorry about that, this is one of my oldest recipes, before I knew how to write the recipes out correctly. I will have to edit that recipe. It is 1- 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes, 1- 6 ounce can of tomato paste.
Perfect! Thanks for the quick response!
Did you drain the kidney beans?
I am making this now but I was wondering if I could freeze half of the filing?
I think it would do ok being frozen.
Did you press out the water from the tofu?
