WHY WE LOVE THEM

I love these veggie fajitas because they’re simple and that’s what the recipes in my kitchen are all about. Simple, simple, simple. I love tossing together lettuce wraps, tacos or fajitas when I’m in a hurry and need to get dinner into my belly without spending hours thinking about what to eat. To me, fajitas are fun and they were always my favorite meal to eat at home and when dining out as a kid. There’s something cozy and festive about fajitas that brings me back to those days when I was a little kid and I could put them together myself, starting with the veggies, then the toppings and wrapping them up and taking a bite. I think I got so excited about all of this because fajitas are considered a finger food!

HOW WE MAKE THEM

This vegan fajitas recipe is perfect for anyone who doesn’t eat meat but is looking for a hearty meal. Don’t worry if you’re a carnivore, we have optional organic animal protein options listed below for you! Either way, the easy fajita sauce recipe that I used with Lifeway Kefir’s new Plantiful beverage is bursting with flavor and is sure to make you a very happy person. I tried these beverages for the first time this summer and I couldn’t help but want to use these creamy dairy-free beverages for sauces, desserts, smoothies and so much more! I really can’t wait for you to try these. If you can’t drink dairy (like me), I have a feeling you’re going to love them. They’re a great alternative to almond milk and other dairy-free beverages, so if you’re on the lookout for something new to add to your cereal, dairy-free baking or just for drinking, do yourself a favor and check these out!

PREP TIPS // If you’re looking for a bit more protein while you’re prepping this recipe, you can easily add nuts or seeds. I personally love to add roasted walnuts to this recipe. If you’re in the mood for it, check out my article on How to Roast Nuts for step-by-step directions.   

INGREDIENT SWAPS // I used a handful of my favorite vegetables to put into these fajitas but feel free to use any veggies of your choice, such as cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, sweet potatoes or whatever floats your boat.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS // In the SHOP the RECIPE above, you’ll see a beautiful pair of tongs that I love to use when entertaining and a gorgeous set of plates and bowls that you can use for serving this recipe. I feel like fajita nights and taco nights are so much fun to serve so I always try to do my best to make the table a bit festive and create a fun ambiance. Get creative and have fun with it!

OPTIONAL ORGANIC ANIMAL PROTEIN // If you’re a carnivore and you’re not into just using a vegetarian fajita filling, you can serve organic chicken with these fajitas. Just add sliced chicken on top of the fajitas and you’re all set. You can pre-make your chicken on a Sunday night so you’ll have it throughout the week to add to recipes like this.
