Eating healthy should be a priority, but every once in a while you may find yourself wanting something greasy. To help fulfill your urges for something savory, this chilaquiles recipe is not only delicious but also gluten-free and vegan-friendly. Let’s get started.
- Two cups of canola oil
- Chili powder
- Eight corn tortillas cut into sixths or quarters
- A dash of Himalayan sea salt
- Extra firm, drained and crumbled tofu (twelve ounces)
- A dash of cayenne pepper
- Six ounces of soy chorizo
- Half a teaspoon of curry powder
- Three cups of chopped, loosely packed kale
- Half a teaspoon of ground cumin
- A ¾ cup of minced red onion
- A teaspoon of garlic powder
- A minced jalapeño (optional)
For the garnish
- Sliced yellow onion
- Half a cup of quartered golden cherry tomatoes
- Shredded vegan cheese
- A ¼ cup of chopped green onion
- Sliced avocado
Begin by setting your oven to high. Use a fork or your hands to crumble the tofu and put it aside for now. Grab a frying pan over medium high heat and add the canola oil. Once the oil is hot enough, place the tortillas in and fry them for about six minutes until they’re crispy and golden brown. Set them aside on a paper-towel lined plate and season them with the chili powder and salt.
Grab an oven friendly skillet, use it over medium-high heat and add half a teaspoon of the oil you used to prepare the tortilla chips. Once the oil is hot enough, add the soy chorizo and cook it for about five minutes or so. Follow by adding the red onion and jalapeño and then saute for about six minutes before adding the kale. Saute for another five minutes.
Once the kale is slightly wilted, add the tofu, cumin, curry powder, and cayenne. Add some salt and pepper for taste. Cook on medium high for about six minutes or until the tofu is sufficiently cooked through. Throw in the tortilla chips and mix everything together.
Use about half a cup of vegan shredded cheese for the garnish and place it in the oven for about three minutes. Use the rest of the garnish toppings and you’re ready to serve.
