Spinach-Mushroom-Tofu Tinga Enchilada Casserole

Submitted by: FORMFITATX

Introduction

Phew! That was a mouthful. I made the filling for this one night, and it turned out to be so much that I waved off making separate enchiladas and went casserole instead. Pretty easy, very healthy, total crowd-pleaser--even the non-veg/tofu-phobes will dig it. Phew! That was a mouthful.

Ingredients

    1 package extra firm or hard tofu, drained and mashed
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/8 tsp truffle oil
    1/4 tsp salt
    juice of one lime
    1/2 large onion, diced
    2 stalks celery, diced
    1 small green bell pepper, diced
    1 block frozen chopped spinach, thawed
    1 package sliced mushrooms, rough chopped
    small can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
    small can tomato sauce
    3/4 tsp salt (or Tony's, Herbamare, etc.)
    8-10 corn tortillas
    tomatillo verde cooking sauce or canned green enchilada sauce (I got this at Central Market in a tub. Hatch makes a good canned one too)


Directions

Oven: 350F

Mix the tofu, olive oil, truffle oil, 1/4 tsp salt, and lime juice in a bowl and set aside.

In a skillet, sweat the onion, celery, and bell pepper with a little salt until soft and translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook till they soften a bit, then add the spinach. Salt a bit. I just salt as I go--I don't really measure.

Ok, here's the tricky part: you'll want to add anywhere from 1/2 teaspoon to 1/2 the can of the adobo sauce, depending on how spicy you want this. I use about 1 tablespoon, which is sassy, but still pleasant for most adults. Be careful; it's high-octane stuff. Add the tomato sauce, reduce heat and soft simmer for about 10 minutes.

Mix with the tofu.

Spray your baking dish (oval, 6x10-ish) with cooking spray and one ladle of green sauce. Put in two tortillas. Top with another ladle of sauce. Then spread about a half-inch of filling on top. Two more tortillas, sauce, et cetera till you use it all up, ending with filling.

OPTIONAL: (not in nutrition info) I topped this with about a half a cup of crushed sweet potato tortilla chips because it seemed like it would be awesome.

Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with additional green sauce.

Serving Size: makes 8 servings about this big (ha ha, I have no idea)
