Herbed Vegetable Enchiladas

Recipe by Enjolinfam

Great potluck dish! This saucy cheese-free enchilada is stuffed with sauteed vegetables. To make ahead, cover and refrigerate prepared dish of enchiladas for up to 24 hours. From "Choices - Quick & Healthy Cooking" cookbook. To make this vegan, use honey instead of sugar and vegan tofu sour cream. I use Quick Tofu and Cashew Sour Cream (Vegan) for the sour cream.

"To make this vegan, use honey instead of sugar and vegan tofu sour cream."<br/><br/>You realize honey isn't vegan, but it is possible to buy vegan sugar...right? http://www.vrg.org/journal/vj2007issue4/2007_issue4_sugar.php
