Meatless Monday: Fresh Veggie Enchiladas

These meatless, dairy-free, gluten-free Enchiladas are a perfect weeknight meal!  I love to make a dish like this on Sundays so we are set up with leftovers for lunch or dinners as the busy week begins.  Just about any veggie will work in this dish as well as a variety of spices.  Most of my veggies were straight out of our CSA farm share this week and I was excited to combine them into a hearty but healthy meatless meal the whole family can enjoy.
