Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups (250g) mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 red pepper deseeded and sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper deseeded and sliced
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp each salt and pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne powder optional

To serve:

  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • Fresh cilantro coriander, roughly chopped
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium/high heat. Add the mushrooms, peppers and onions and cook for 3-5 minute or until soft and much of the juice from the mushrooms has evaporated, stirring often.
  • Stir in the spices and cook for a further minute.
  • Serve the tortillas rolled up with the mushroom mixture, avocado, coriander, salsa and guacamole.

Notes

  • Nutrition is calculated including a tortilla wrap, but excluding additional toppings.
  • Mushrooms are perfect for veggie fagitas as they have a nice dense texture, but feel free to swap for other veggies, like zucchini, summer squash etc...
  • For extra protein, spread the fajitas with refried beans or add half a can of black beans to the veggies while cooking.
  • Leave your mushrooms in a sunny windowsill for half an hour before cooking, so they can naturally create vitamin D - something we could all use a bit more of this time of year.
  • Try making your own flour tortillas from scratch.
  • Turn them into vegetarian fajitas by adding sour cream and cheese. You can, of course, also add vegan versions instead!
