These plant-based fajitas are awesome because they are oil-free, gluten-free, plant based, and loaded with flavor! Portobello mushrooms are the perfect substitute for meat in this vegan fajita recipe. 

The key to the perfect fajita is to not overcook the veggies. You want them to be soft, but still a tiny bit firm. Feel free to season them to your preference with spices like cumin, smoked paprika, chili powder, and garlic powder. Garnish with fresh cilantro and drizzle with Vegan Cashew Sour Cream and hot sauce! 

The Cashew Sour Cream is super simple, all you need is a blender. Serve the fajitas with some rice and beans and you’re good to go!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
