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!
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)
Tomato Puree OR ½ tin of chopped tomatoes (optional)
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
Slices of carrot
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.
