Fajitas

I love fajitas as they're great for a colourful dish and quick to make. You can prepare your marinade the night before or a few hours before cooking so the flavours will develop. Use chicken / lean beef / tofu / chick peas and plenty of vegetables to bulk out!

INGREDIENTS:

  • Spices Mix options or use your own variation:

In a bowl create your marinade:

  • Nutritional Yeast 1 tbsp (optional – good to add for vegetarians – b12)
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Chili powder
  • Paprika
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried Oregano
  • Chilli flakes
  • Olive Oil
  • Tomato Puree OR ½ tin of chopped tomatoes (optional)

Protein Options

  • Tofu – Add into marinade and leave for a few hours / overnight
  • Chicken Breast – Add into marinade and leave for a few hours / overnight
  • Beans / Pulses

Dice Into Strips: (Choose Your Own Types of Veg)

  • Peppers (red , yellow, green)
  • Baby Corn sliced
  • 1 x red or yellow onion
  • Courgette cut into slices
  • Mangetout
  • Slices of carrot

METHOD:

  • Use 2 x tbsp of olive oil and heat the pan.
  • Saute the vegetables first then add your chicken
  • If using TOFU you can add at the end as it does not need much cooking but it will benefit for leaving longer in the marinade the night before.

SERVING FOR 1:

  • Traditionally with a flour tortilla (2 per person)
  • 60g Rice preferably mix of brown / wild / white
  • Cauli Rice
  • Lettuce Cups
