Quick and easy. Tasty and light on the budget as well as the waistline. Portobello Fajitas are so yummy, you will never miss the meat! Pair it with “Beckamole” Guacamole and you have the perfect plant-forward lunch or dinner that everyone will be asking for more of.
Plant Forward Favorite
Every January, after the sugar rush and heavy meals of celebration and feasting have passed, my body is begging for a reset. January is the time of year I pour through my plant-forward cookbooks searching for twenty-one days of plants. When I started this practice of fasting, the only recipes I knew that were plant-based were beans and rice and rice and beans. Needless to say, it got a little boring.
Since then, I have learned how truly wonderful and tasty veggies can be without the need for meat to be front and center stage on the dinner plate. Truthfully, I actually prefer these Portobello’s to their steak cousins…easier to chew and better on the budget too. We try and prepare at least two plant-forward meals a week and these are always on the list of year-round favorites.
Ready In a Matter of Minutes
Portobello fajitas are super quick to make with only a few ingredients and very little prep except the “Beckamole” Guacamole. But even that only takes about 15 minutes in a food processor and can be prepared earlier in the day if need be. The tortillas can be heated and kept warm while the Portobellos are marinating. The onions, peppers, and Portobellos only take about 3-5 minutes on medium-high, so we are talking dinner on the table in a matter of minutes. These are so yummy, I promise they will be regulars on your monthly menu rotation.
