Vegetarian Fajitas

Category: , ,

I just knew I had posted this before, because we eat them so often but I hadn't; so here you go!  I am probably not setting your world on fire or anything with this one, but vegetarian fajitas are a favorite of the Givens household.  We eat them in all seasons, and it's one of the few dishes Drew requests.  Simple and healthy, vegetarian fajitas are a great make at home meal, and with at least the first part of January being all about resolutions and eating lighter, this is a meal that feels heavier but won't weigh you down.  Are we all cliched out yet?

These veggie fajitas are great for the Meatless Monday challengers, vegans, meat eaters who want to still eat hearty, and anyone who will eat a vegetable.  Serve with salsa, guacamole, refried beans, and if you want to get wild, tortillas.  They're extremely adaptable, allowing for substituting or altogether adding/omitting various vegetables

Word to the wise- use your grill or turn on that hood fan!
