Yield: six enchiladas

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c. water
1/2 c. cornmeal
1 each 10.5 oz. package Mori-Nu Silken Tofu
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 c. fresh arugula, chopped
2 tsp. garlic salt
to taste ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. sweet basil
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 c. red bell pepper, chopped
1 c. white onion, chopped
1/2 c. chives, chopped
1/2 c. black olives, pitted and sliced
6 each 10" corn tortillas
as needed oil for frying
1/2 c. pinto beans, cooked
1/2 c. black beans, cooked
1 each can enchilada sauce



Procedure:
Boil the water in a small saucepot, and whisk in the cornmeal, cooking for about 2 minutes until the mixture is smooth and thickened. Cool.

Blend cornmeal and tofu, until smooth, in a food processor.

Add the parsley, arugula, garlic salt, herbs, and continue processing until they are just blended.

Mix the pepper, onions, chives and olives together. Reserve half of this mixture for garnishing the finished dish.

Prepare each tortilla for the enchilada by frying it in oil until soft and then draining it on absorbent paper.

Spread each tortilla with some corn and tofu mixture and top with vegetables, beans and a little enchilada sauce. Fold over and place into a 13” x 9” baking dish.

When all the enchiladas have been stuffed and placed in the pan, top with the remaining corn/tofu mixture, beans, vegetables and enchilada sauce. Bake them at 350° for about 30 to 45 minutes, or until the dish is bubbly, browned and crispy on top.

Garnish with additional fresh herbs, if desired.
