Place contents of canned beans in small pot with lid on stove. Add crushed garlic. Simmer on low for one hour.

Cook 1/2 cup dry brown rice and 1/2 cup dry sweet brown rice in 2 ½ cups water with a pinch of salt. Bring to boil then simmer for about 30 minutes until water is gone.

Lightly oil glass 9” X 12” baking dish. Preheat oven to 400F.

Mix together in a medium sized bowl the rice and bean mixtures. Add soy sauce. Grate tofu in a medium sized bowl, add tahini, sesame oil, fruit sweetener and gomasio, then mix well.

Take one tortilla in your hand and fill with bean mixture, then place open side up in baking dish. Repeat until all tortillas are filled. (Place filled tortillas close to each they so they help support each other to stand open-side up in dish.) Take tofu mixture a spoonful at a time and add to top of bean mixture in every tortilla until gone.

Cover baking dish loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle nori seaweed evenly on top of enchiladas. Enjoy!
