A lovely quick, nutritious meal using store cupboard ingredients. Chopping the veg into small pieces makes it more likely that young kids will eat them!

Ingredients: 

  • Wraps, 1-2 per person: eg Old El Paso fajitas OR Discovery tortillas - preferably wholemeal

Filling

  • Oil or oil spray
  • 1 pack of plain tofu, cubed OR vegan chicken-style pieces such as Asda or Fry's
  • Stir-fry sauce, eg Tesco Black Bean sauce or Blue Dragon Garlic & Ginger (wok fry 3 mins)
  • 1 pack of stir-fried vegetables
  • 1 red pepper, sliced very small
  • 6 spring onions, sliced small
  • 1 large leek, chopped small
  • 4 crushed garlic cloves or a big squeeze of garlic paste
  • 1 jar of fajita sauce (El Paso, Discovery or other brand that is vegan)

Guacamole

  • 2 ready-to-eat avocados
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed OR ½ tsp garlic paste
  • Lime juice
  • Salt

To serve

  • Tomato salsa, from a jar or fresh tub 
  • Tub of Tofutti sour crème OR jar of vegan mayo, eg Plamil

Method: 

1. If using tofu, drain and gently squeeze as much water out as possible. Cut into cubes.

2. In a non-stick pan, cook the tofu or chicken-style pieces in a little oil or oil spray. Add the stir-fry sauce and set aside.

3. In a wok, fry all the vegetables for a few minutes. Add the fajita sauce just before the end.

4. Make the guacamole: peel the avocados, remove the stone and mash them up with a fork in a small bowl. Mix in the garlic, salt and lime juice, tasting and adding more if desired.

5. Warm the fajitas/wraps by wrapping them in a clean teatowel or kitchen paper – microwave for 20-30 seconds. Alternatively, wrap in foil and heat in a warm oven for 10-15 minutes. Put everything in separate dishes on table; everyone tucks in!
