Almost 1 year of being vegan (more on that later), these easy vegan fajitas are my go-to when in a hurry. Who doesn’t love Mexican food? I always loved it and gravitated towards it but more so now that I am vegan. To be honest, I cook a Mexican dish probably 3 times a week. Taco bowls, enchiladas, fajitas, nachos are on constant rotation in our household.
Speaking of households, I am in a split one. I’m a vegan and my fiancé is a meat-eater. Not to mention, my fiancé is a meat-eating chef who travels A LOT for his job so when he is home we tend to cook a lot. Although he does eat meat, dairy and eggs, he will eat and cook vegan at home. He has always been super supportive of any way I want to eat as long as it is healthy. We try to come up with dishes that can also incorporate meat easily for when we have guests that are not vegan or when he feels like something different. 9 times out of 10 he won’t add meat but it is always an option.
Since we eat so much Mexican food, we make a small mason jar of seasoning that we can use for all the Mexican dishes. Sometimes I’ll buy the organic seasoning packets when I’m in a pinch but they are not as good. Be careful when buying any pre-made seasoning packets because sometimes they have milk added (insert eye roll).
Meat-eater or vegan, it will not disappoint! These easy fajitas take less than 30 minutes to make. I always cook enough of each meal to have leftovers for lunch the next day. A good way to mix it up a bit, add any kind of rice and you can have a burrito bowl. 2 meals, 25 minutes is a win for me!
