Salsa Verde Enchiladas

Last summer I enjoyed a lovely visit to San Francisco –  one of my favorite cities!  This gorgeous city has a myriad of vibrant and amazing vegan restaurants.  My inspiration for this dish came from a wonderful vegan Mexican joint named Gracias Madre.  This fully plant-based and organic restaurant serves fresh and bold flavors that proves Mexican cuisine does not have to be cheese / dairy dependent.

These salsa verde enchiladas are a tasty twist on the classic enchiladas roja.  Green tomatillos are oven-roasted to bring out deep flavor and when combined with jalapeños, lime juice, onion and cilantro, the results are mouth-watering!  These baked enchiladas are topped off with a drizzle of cashew cream along with sliced radishes, cilantro, and avocado.  Every time I bite into this dish, I am transported to the creative culinary delights of SFO and Gracias Madre.
