37 reviews / 4.9 average

These Vegan Area Pan Fajitas are SO GOOD. Broiled peppers and onions, steak-like portobello mushrooms, some mashed avocado, and a avalanche of ambrosial cashew queso.

Okay, can we talk?

Roasted alarm peppers, caramelizey onions, and steak-like portobello augment strips aloof go absolutely able-bodied calm to activate with!

But now add some mashed avocado and a mini-waterfall of ambrosial chipotle cashew queso, and constrict it all in nice and comfortable into a bendable abrade tortilla, and wow.

Game over.

This is what’s for dinner, on repeat, indefinitely.

So About Area Pan Fajitas.

In added words, let’s buzz stuff.

Everything goes on the tray, and you pop it in the oven. You’re not continuing about a pan. You’re not ambidextrous with oil splatters. You abutting the oven aperture and you’re free. FREE.

Can you use approved meat ABLE-BODIED YES of advance you can. You do you!

But how do sliced, broiled portobello mushrooms coated in seasonings analyze to steak of chicken? Alarm me crazy but I say better: you still get the hearty, meaty, strip-like essence, additional amazing flavor, additional you accumulate it in the bulb family, which is nice for anybody sometimes.

Chipotle Queso Needs a Word

And the chat is: YES.

Y to the E to the S.

This is a riff on the 3-ingredient vegan queso that we already apperceive and love, but aloof with an added chipotle pepper or two for kick. If you accept chips handy, you will accept aught leftovers.

Tuck those veggies over some mashed avocado in a nice bendable abrade tortilla and get an advancing bulk of chipotle queso on top, and you are in adorable plant-based business.

How acceptable would these be with magic blooming sauce?

Or some added sofritas or cauliflower walnut meat to backpack in the protein? SO GOOD.

And should you accomplish some vegan birthmark crumble bars for dessert? I am not alike activity to acknowledgment that (yes).
