These easy Portobello Mushroom Fajitas are such a flavorful, satisfying meal. Plus they only take 30 minutes to make. Then personalize them with your own favorite toppings!
These easy Portobello fajitas combine a few of my favorite things: mushrooms, Mexican food, and colorful plants.
Portobello mushrooms have such a nice, tender, "meaty" texture, so they work really well in these satisfying veggie fajitas.
Ingredients for Portobello Fajitas
For this recipe you will need:
- Portobello mushrooms
- Bell peppers: The recipe calls for two full bell peppers, but I use four different colors, taking half of each pepper for maximum rainbow effect.
- Onion: Either yellow onion, white onion, or red onion will work.
- Taco seasoning: I love using my homemade taco seasoning blend for this recipe. Plus it's easy to make ahead of time so it's ready to go.
- Lime juice
- Olive oil: This is used for sautéing. Simply substitute water or vegetable broth for an oil-free version.
- Corn tortillas: These are a great gluten-free tortilla choice, but use your own favorite tortillas.
- Toppings of choice: See below for ideas.
This is a great meal to prep some things ahead of time for even faster assembly.
Bell peppers + onion: Slice the bell peppers and onions, then place them together in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you're ready to cook.
Taco seasoning: I also like to make a batch of the taco seasoning ahead of time, and store it in a sealed glass jar in the pantry.
Personalize these with your own favorite toppings before serving. A few ideas include:
- Avocado or guacamole
- Fresh Pico de Gallo
- Restaurant-Style Blender Salsa
- Vegan shredded cheese or dairy-free cheese sauce
- Vegan sour cream
- Hot sauce
