Easy Peasy Speedy Fajitas

A lovely quick, nutritious meal using store cupboard ingredients and ready-prepped veg. We've also been assured by mums that this is a great way of getting your kids to eat veg because they get to assemble their own fajitas from bowls! And the veg can be chopped up small. 

Top Tip - it's easy to make home made guacamole (avocado dip). However, Sainsbury's Be Good To Yourself Low Fat is vegan. 

 

 

 

Ingredients: 

  • Wraps, 1-2 per person: eg Old El Paso fajitas OR Discovery tortillas - preferably wholemeal. Mission wraps are also vegan - check other brands for suitablity. 

Filling

  • Oil or oil spray
  • 1 pack of plain tofu, cubed OR vegan chicken-style pieces such as Fry's, VBites or Quorn vegan pieces
  • 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 (or use a vegan ready-made version - see above!)

  • 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 cooking plain tofu, drain and gently squeeze as much water out as possible. Cut into cubes. (Ready-cooked Cauldron marinated tofu pieces also work well but add near the end).

2. In a non-stick pan, cook the plain 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 - and the cooked tofu/vegan chicken pieces.

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!
