The start of a new work week can sometimes be a drag, which is why having something to look forward to can really make it worthwhile! And we’ve got a vegan recipe that will get you excited to leave work and head home to cook.
Recently I decided to go vegetarian (woo hoo!), and my main concern was being able to still keep my comfort foods minus the animals.
Behold my new favorite recipe for veggie fajitas! I got this recipe from Jolinda Hackett, but I decided to give it a twist. Cheese has always been a weakness of mine, so I wanted to try a vegan cheese that would compliment the fajitas.
Luckily, Food for Lovers developed a creamy and spicy vegan queso that is seriously better than queso I used to eat when I wasn’t veg! I wanted to include this specific queso for all those struggling to find a vegan cheese substitute that doesn’t scrimp on the taste, because this really did make the dish!
Vegetarian Fajitas with Mushrooms
- 2 red bell peppers, cut into strips
- 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 4 flour tortillas
- sour cream (optional)
Sautee the peppers, mushrooms and onion in olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the spices and continue cooking for another 2 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
Place a few spoonfuls of the mixture in a flour tortilla, top with the Food for Lovers vegan queso and enjoy your vegetarian fajitas!
