Vegan Fajitas

Vegan Fajitas PinThese Vegan Fajitas topped with roasted portobello mushrooms and sautéed onions and peppers is absolutely delicious, and still nutritious!

Three corn tortillas topped with all the fixin’s has 514 calories, 20 grams of fiber and 24 grams of protein. Add to that: 75% RDV of Vitamin A, 340% Vitamin C, 31% Calcium and 63% Iron. Looking at these stats for a vegan dish, it’s hard to understand how the protein and calcium deficiency myth gained traction and continues to be the most common question vegans get asked.

We like using my Grandpa’s Vegan Dipping Hot Sauce on our vegan fajitas, but you can use your favorite salsa. Just be sure to get a salsa without a lot of added sugar, as most store-bought brands contain loads of it.

These are also fantastic topped with a little Vegan Cashew Sour Cream, but that’ll increase the calorie count a little.

Let's Prepare the Portobello Mushrooms
  1. In a small bowl combine the lime juice, tamari and portobello mushroom marinade spices. Coat the mushrooms in the marinade and let sit for 10-20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet and roast for about 15 minutes or until tender. Saute the veggies and cook the refried beans while the mushrooms are cooking.
Let's Saute the Veggies
  1. Slice the peppers and onions into thin slices.
  2. Heat veggie broth in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add peppers and onions, toss to coat with the broth, and cook for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender. Cover the skillet with a lid to keep the broth from evaporating.
Let's Cook the Refried Beans
  1. Add the refried beans to a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the refried bean ingredients: lime juice, onion powder, cumin, salt, black pepper. Stir to mix well. Heat until it bubbles and reduce heat to low. Stir occasionally.
