You may inquire as to why I utilized lentils to make these veggie lover enchiladas. All things considered, I love lentils, they are a stunning wellspring of sound protein and contain bunches of nutrients, minerals, and fiber.

For instance, lentils are wealthy in folate, copper, manganese, phosphorus, iron, and zinc. They have an incredible taste and surface and joined with tasty flavors and other plant-based fixings they even help a smidgen to remember ground meat.

That is the reason they are the ideal filling for veggie lover enchiladas. I additionally love that lentils are reasonable, they cook a lot quicker than beans or chickpeas, and they are significantly simpler to process.
