These quorn enchiladas are a favourite for Lady Lynne and I at the weekend!

Of course there’s nothing to say you can’t have these during the week, it’s just they do take a little longer to prep and cook than the majority of my other recipes.

I can’t say I notice any difference when having these instead of the traditional Mexican version either.

They’re just as cheesy, tasty and filling but easier on the waistline!

Of course you can buy those kits that you can make enchiladas from as well.

But you know me, I like a challenge and I couldn’t see any vegetarian versions made with Quorn that I specifically liked on the internet so what better excuse that to make my own?

And to show you how easy it can be to make your own too!

  1. I can’t wait for the day that Canada (finally!) approves Quorn for human consumption! I’ve been waiting half my life!

    • Wow. I really had no idea Quorn wasn’t available in Canada! Sorry about that! If substituting with lean beef mince isn’t your thing then I would suggest Butter Beans?
