Yummy Lazy Fajitas

Bonjour! I hope everyone (Michele) has had a great week! I have been busy working out and trying to get healthy… and I have more or less neglected the blog. My apologies for this.

So, today's recipe is for delicious vegan fajitas! They are extremely easy and I am quite sure they will make its way into your usual culinary repertoire. Enjoy!

Vegan Fajitas [Serves 4, or 2 really hungry people]

4-6 Four Tortillas
1 tbsp Canola oil
3 Bell peppers (assorted colours), sliced
1/4 lb Mushrooms (your favourite kind), sliced
2 Onions, sliced
2 cloves Garlic, diced
1 Can Refried Beans
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp onion powder
1-2 tbsp chilli powder
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
1/2 tsp coriander (optional)
1/4 cup water

Lettuce, chopped, for topping
Salsa, for topping
Guacamole, for topping


Heat oil in a pan over med-high heat. Add bell peppers and sauté until they become soft, about 5 minutes. Add onions and mushrooms and continue sautéing until onions are translucent; add garlic and continue cooking for 5 minutes longer or until vegetables have caramelized to your taste.

Add spices and continue cooking for about 2 minutes. Add the water to deglaze the pan and add refried beans. It will be slightly difficult to mix the beans into the mix, but as it warms it will incorporate into the vegetables.

Your filling is now complete. Warm the tortillas and spoon filling onto them, along with chopped lettuce, salsa and guacamole. Roll up and serve. Enjoy!


- Add a can of corn (drained and rinsed) for extra flavour

- Add Seitan or Tofu to up the protein (although there is a good quantity as is)

- To make these into Enchiladas, roll up each tortilla (without lettuce) and place into a deep baking pan. Pour over enchilada sauce (most are Vegan) and sprinkle Vegan cheese over top. Bake at 375 until the cheese is browned and bubbly.

PS -I have figured out how to add pictures - so they will be coming soon! :)
