Veggie Enchiladas

This is one of my favorite dishes, and as with everything that I cook, it’s totally different each time. The most important parts, for me, are the sweet potato, onion, garlic, and a spice-set that includes cumin, coriander, paprika, and cayenne. This particular recipe is from November of 2015, and was created as part of an exchange I was doing for yoga classes in Portland, Oregon. Usually the sauce is tomato-based (or tomatillo), but this time I wanted to go with something creamier, with a bit of a cheesy taste to it. The cashews & macadamias give the cheesy taste, as well as quite a bit of extra protein. If you want to go a little cheaper, replace those with sunflower seeds, it won’t be quite as rich, but the flavor will be similar.
