These full-of-flavor vegan fajitas are on the table in 20 minutes. Keep 'em simple or load 'em up with your favorite toppings - either way, they're super satisfying and tasty.
Yield: 8fajitas (serves 4)
88-inch flour tortillas*
2medium portobello mushroomsabout 1/2 pound
1large redyellow, or orange bell pepper - or a combo of all three
1/2large yellow or red onionsliced
1medium ripe avocadosliced
1fresh limecut into wedges
Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven to warm.
Twist the stem off of the mushrooms and wipe caps with a damp paper towel to clean. If you prefer to remove the gills, use the tip of a spoon to pry them out. Some people like to remove the gills because they can turn the foods they're cooking with brown, but with these fajitas, I don't find that to be a problem. Cut caps into 1/2-inch thick slices. Place in a medium bowl and drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with cumin, chili powder, oregano, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Toss gently with your hands to evenly coat the mushroom pieces.
Place a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add portobellos, being careful not to crowd (cook in two batches if necessary). Cook for 3-4 minutes, turning occasionally with tongs, until tender. Transfer to a plate.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to skillet. Add onions and peppers along with a pinch of salt. Cook, tossing occasionally, until tender and browned in spots, 7-8 minutes.
To serve, place a couple of portobello slices along with a few pieces of onions and peppers in the middle of a flour tortilla. Top with avocado and a squeeze of lime. Fold up and eat!
