1 cup unsweetened Almond milk
1 cup water
1 Campari tomato, cut into eighths
¼ cup fresh organic cilantro leaves
Sauté onion in olive oil on medium heat. When softened, remove from heat—add salts and flour and stir. Return to medium-low heat, add remaining ingredients. As soon as it bubbles, turn heat to low and simmer for five minutes. Turn off heat and set aside.
8 oz. cheddar style vegan cheese, grated (Daiya brand is new & delicious)
Diced raw onion
12 organic sprouted corn tortillas; thaw completely and let dry (or hot oil will splatter and get you).
To soften tortillas, heat olive oil in iron skillet on medium high. Twirl tortillas for 5 seconds on each side; drain on paper towels.
Heat oven to 350. Oil 9 x 13 pan lightly. Pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce on bottom of pan. Put 2 Tbsp. grated cheese in tortilla plus sprinkling of raw onion; roll sides in & place seam side down. Cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese and onions. Bake at 350 covered for 25 minutes until bubbly. (You may remove foil for the last 5 minutes—just don’t let them dry out.)

MILLET PECAN CRUNCH BREAD
(written for bread machines)
You will notice little crunchies when you bite into this bread! That's the tablespoon of millet. The texture is hearty yet still airy-tender and moist with pecan & cashew chunks. It's not eating a plain white bread! (made a high loaf)
1 cup water
½ cup plain Vitasoy
3/8 cup olive oil + 2 tsp. Earth Balance veggie "butter"
¼ cup maple syrup
1 ¼ cups organic whole wheat pasty flour
1 3/8 cups organic unbleached wheat flour
1 cup white spelt flour
¼ cup organic rolled oats
1 tsp. sea salt
1 package dry yeast (used Fleischman's this time)
Slightly less than ¼ cup quartered raw pecans
Slightly less than ¼ cup broken raw cashews
1 Tbsp. uncooked millet
Layer in the bread machine:
Make a well in the top and put one package of dry yeast.
Bake on Basic setting, Medium, 1-½ pound loaf. After about 20-30 minutes when it has preheated and partially mixed, add the chopped nuts and millet. (My bread machine has a signal when it is time to add extra goodies.)
