Homemade Vegetarian Fajita Recipe

This is a recipe I got from my mum, I've always loved the way she makes fajitas and they're so simple and quick to put together that they're a go-to recipe for me when I'm tired. You can pack them with as much veg as you like, too, so they're pretty good for you. The benefit of using your own spices instead of a packet mix is that you can make it taste exactly how you want it to, as mild or as spicy as you desire.


Here's what you'll need to make these tasty fajitas:

Tortilla wraps
1 white onion
Quorn chicken style pieces (or you can use real chicken if you're not a veggie, or skip this altogether and add extra veg, baby corn and mange tout go really well)
2 or 3 bell peppers
Creme fraiche
Wholegrain mustard
Grated cheese (if desired)
Cumin
Paprika
Chilli powder

Pre-heat a wok with a little oil. Chop the onion and start to cook in the wok, followed by quorn chicken (or real chicken) if you're using any. Chop the bell peppers and any other veg you want to add, chuck those in the wok too and give it all a good stir.



Now you want to add the seasoning. You'll want to use plenty of cumin and paprika, then chilli powder to taste. You can make them as spicy or as mild as you like. While that's cooking away you can quickly grate the cheese if you're using any, and make the sauce.

I don't know what made my mum come up with the idea for using this sauce instead of sour cream, but I love the stuff! All you do is mix some wholegrain mustard (as much or as little as you'd like) with some creme fraiche. It goes together so well, it helps to cool the fajitas down while still having plenty of great taste.


Once that's ready you can just chuck everything on the table and start putting your fajitas together. You can add some salad too, if you wish. That's the great thing about this recipe, it's so versatile and simple.
