Vegan Dinner Recipe: Mexican Bake

Hey everyone! How is your January going? Is anyone doing Veganuary? If you read my last post you would have read that I was trying out a food cleanse where I only ate whole-foods (unprocessed) and did not eat any salt or oil. I was trying to incorporate more healthy foods into my diet and eat as much produce as possible. Well, I can sure tell you that the recipes were very bland and boring. It was also incredibly expensive (about double the amount that I usually spend on groceries). I don’t see eating that way as a sustainable option for me. But then again, who knows. I said the same thing about veganism 5 years ago and here I am. But for now, it’s a no go.

Today I am coming at you with probably my favourite casserole dinners. I had some doubt before trying this recipe. How could a coconut yogurt taste not coconutty and taste like a delicious, Mexican-flavoured cheese? I was sure that this recipe was not going to be a hit. When I had that first bite, I almost saw fireworks. This dish is so delicious and easy! This obviously isn’t an authentic Mexican recipe, but it is so amazing! Another thing that I love about the website that I found the recipe on is that all recipes are oil-free and are only 8 ingredients.

Anyways, I do make one modification to this recipe which is that I like to add 1 cup of cooked brown rice and layer it in between so it bulks it up a bit. Sometimes I also don’t add the green onions because I don’t have any on hand. The green onions don’t make much of a difference anyways.

This recipe is so simple to make. Serve this dish with your favourite veggie and it’s a complete meal. This recipe is definitely in my rotation and should be in yours too!
