Vegetarian Fajita

Happy Meatless Monday guys! I’m excited to share with you our meatless dish for the week, it’s simple and easy but it really taste good and it’s loaded with my favorite veggies. Let me introduce you to Veggie Fajitas! 

Vegetarian Fajita with Mushroom and Peppers

This Veggie Fajitas have enough or I should probably say more than enough vegetables to make it a filling meal. Mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, onion and corn, plus mix and match of spices made this simple Fajitas taste great. I honestly did not expect to taste this good, I was just throwing in vegetables that I have in my fridge and seasoning it with my favorite peppers. When I ate it, wow! So much flavor that I didn’t expect from a vegetarian Fajitas. I had ordered Vegetarian Fajitas before in restaurant and I told myself never again. It somehow lacks taste and flavor, and I ended up leaving not satisfied and even worst still hungry. I guess that experience got stuck in my mind when I was making this recipe. I kept repeating to myself “I want flavor, lots of nice flavor”. When making vegetarian dishes, taste becomes the major challenge and what I learned so far is that you have to season it well, because in general most vegetables do not have a taste on its own, it’s bland. So if you want a flavor vegetarian dish, you have to be generous with the seasonings. Which I did for this dish. I added spices and lots of pepper because for me peppers makes my dish better, hot stuff. But then If you are not into hot stuff, simply reduce the peppers, leave a small portion just to flavor the dish.

Now the cheese, don’t forget to add the cheese, it makes a huge difference having that melting gooey cheese on top. You can add more or less 1/3 – 1/2 cup of even more if you want too, that why you will get a thick cheesy melting toppings.

Tomato Jalapeno Salsa

Although salsa is optional, if you can get your hands on one, use it. Again, flavor. I used my easy One Pan Homemade Jalapeño Salsa, simple and easy. Now that we got everything covered, grab some soft tortillas and fill it with this fajita, don’t forget to squeeze some lime juice on top, it makes a huge difference in the taste.  Let me show you how I made this. Let’s get started!
