Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make these vegan recipes:

  •  2 large sweet potatoes (about 1.5 pounds)
  •  1 can of black beans
  •  1 small white onion
  •  5 corn tortillas
  •  1 can of green chile enchilada sauce
  •  1/2 table spoon chile powder
  •  1/2 tablespoon cumin
  •  1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  •  1/4 cup nutritional yeast

Start preparing these vegan recipes by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, go ahead and peel and dice your sweet potatoes. Once prepared, the sweet potatoes should be tossed in and coated with the chile powder. Spread the sweet potatoes across a baking sheet and bake them for about 30 minutes. They should be tender when you poke them with a fork. Set them aside.

For your next step, rinse the black beans in water and place them in the bowl with the sweet potatoes. Add the cumin and the black pepper and toss the whole mixture. Go ahead and chop your onions. They should be sautéed in a sauce pan until they are translucent in color. Next, reduce the heat in your oven to 350 degrees.

The corn tortillas should then be cut in half and so they can be layered. Layer the corn tortillas in a baking dish and add the following ingredients in this order: green chile sauce, tortillas, black beans, sweet potatoes, and onions. The ingredients should make about two layers. Finally, top the whole concoction with the nutritional yeast. Cover the dish with foil, and let it bake for 45 at 350 degrees. When you have 20 minutes left in the cooking process, remove the foil so that the top of the lasagna can brown.
