Low Carb Beef and Spinach Enchiladas

I attempted to make this low carb by making tortillas with flax meal instead of using regular flour or corn tortillas. It tasted great but my decision to try to make it low carb gave it an unexpected texture that I didn’t particularly enjoy.

I also couldn’t find any enchilada sauce in my local Walmart that day so looked for a recipe. This dish was a mixture of several recipes combined. Overall it was way too much work to modify this recipe to make it low carb. See links below.

I used a homemade enchilada sauce recipe I found online and doubled it. Here’s the link to the original recipe:

Tofu with mixed veggies


I think I was following a recipe and modified it a bit. I’m just not sure what recipe I was following because I can’t find it. The original recipe didn’t ask for it to be air fried, but I wasn’t in the mood for super soft tofu. Here’s what I did. Turned out okay, but I’d prefer the tofu even drier and with more texture.


  • 1 block tofu
  • 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/4 c low sodium soy sauce 
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 inches ginger, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 T corn starch 
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1/4 c chopped green onion
  • 1 bag frozen mixed veggies
  • Sesame seeds and hot chili oil for garnish
  1. Open tofu, place on a pan lined with paper towel.
  2. Add another pan or plate on top of the tofu and add something to weigh it down. This will help squeeze the liquid out.
  3. Prepare the sauce. In a little pot add the brown sugar, ground ginger, garlic powder, sesame seeds, white vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, water, ginger, and garlic. Bring to boil.
  4. Prepare the cornstarch slurry. Add cold water to cornstarch and stir until lumps gone.
  5. One sauce is boiling, turn off heat, add slurry, and stir. Add green onions and stir in. Reserve about 1/2 cup for the veggies.
  6. Slice tofu into cubes and place in baking pan.
  7. Pour sauce over tofu and Airfry for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
  8. Pour mixed veggies in pan. Stir fry with sauce reserved from earlier until heated through.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
