This tortilla pie is low in fat, high in nutrients and big on flavor! This dish is fairly easy to put together and it’s good enough to please any skeptic.

1 large onion chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

1 4 oz can mild green chilies

1 can no-salt diced tomatoes

5 tsp chili powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp oregano

1 6 oz can tomato paste

1 pound frozen chopped broccoli

2 cups fresh or frozen corn

3 cups cooked pinto beans

Juice from one lime

4 Tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos, Tamari, or salt or to taste

4 Ezekiel Tortillas or other whole wheat tortilla

Cashew/Tofu Cheez Sauce (See page 73 in Whole Food Goodness)

or other non-dairy cheez sauce recipe  

Saute’ chopped onion in a large sauce pan with 1/4 cup of water on high heat until tender. Reduce heat to medium-high and add remaining ingredients up to pinto beans, in order, stirring after each addition. Cook until hot then add lime juice and Braggs, Tamari, or salt. Add water if needed for moisture.

In a cast iron skillet, pour Cashew/Tofu Cheez Sauce to cover the bottom of the skillet. Lay one tortilla in the skillet and top with 1/3 of the vegetable mixture. Drizzle cheez sauce on top. Do this with the two remaining layers but instead of topping the last vegetable mixture with cheez, put it on top of the last tortilla so it covers the pie. Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes.

“I’ve been using the recipes in your cookbooks. I love the Spicy pumpkin soup and your mustard potatoes…. yum! I cook up a batch of the potatoes and freeze them to use for meals for my brother. Usually potatoes get mushy in the freezer but these seem to be OK. I tried the Peppermint Patty’s and really liked them too! Thanks!”  K. Page, St. George, Utah
"Your recipes are making it much easier for us to keep on the diet." Yvonne, St. George
“I just love your cookbooks! I’ve been gradually working towards a plant based diet since about 2012 and have used a few really good cookbooks – the happy herbivore books, the China Study Books, Engine 2 etc — which all gave me a great foundation for this approach. Your cookbooks have offered new ways of seeing some of the recipes . I’ve made a few of the deserts, some of the loafs, and breakfasts. Great use of herbs and spices, and I like the fact that the ingredients are very simple to use. ” Thanks again, Sue

My recipes are unique in that they contain no extracted oils, minimal processed sugars, and limited processed grains. I use an abundance of leafy green vegetables, which are the healthiest foods on the planet and have the greatest power to cleanse, detoxify, and repair damaged cells and bring you greater health for life.

Along with the recipes, you will find quotes from some of my favorite nutrition experts and documented research studies that will tell you why it's important to eat a plant based diet.
