Would we be able to please pause for a minute to welcome these protein-rich lentil enchiladas? They were a success in my home and I can hardly wait to make them once more, since they are very yummy! In addition to the fact that they are delectable, they are wealthy in protein, sans gluten, plant-based, without nut, and they contain just healthy fixings. Did your mouth start watering as of now?

You may inquire as to why I utilized lentils to make these vegetarian enchiladas. All things considered, I love lentils, they are an astonishing wellspring of solid protein and contain bunches of nutrients, minerals, and fiber. For instance, lentils are wealthy in folate, copper, manganese, phosphorus, iron, and zinc. They have an incredible taste and surface and joined with tasty flavors and other plant-based fixings they even help a little to remember ground meat.

That is the reason they are the ideal filling for plant-based enchiladas. I additionally love that lentils are economical, they cook a lot quicker than beans or chickpeas, and they are much simpler to process.
