Seitan Fajitas


Fajitas! One of the easiest meals to prepare as a vegan. This recipe comes together quickly and really satisfies on a night when you just need fajitas. Once you have this recipe down it is super easy to play around with; adding and omitting as your fridge and pantry allow/inspire.

1 T olive oil
1 red bell pepper, seeded, ribbed and cut into strips
1/2 c fresh pineapple cut into bite sized pieces (canned pineapple would be OK too)
1 package or approximately 1 c, of seitan (seitan can be challenging to find in very small towns, you can make your own or stock up when you are out of town)
1 1/2 tsp Caribbean Jerk seasoning
4-6 inch tortillas, warmed
Lime, cut into wedges.

1) In a non-stick skillet over medium high heat cook the pineapple until it begins to brown a bit.
2) Add the bell pepper and the seitan. Add the Caribbean Jerk, making sure that it becomes evenly distributed.
3) Heat for 5-7 minutes or until the seitan starts to brown a bit. Place into the warmed tortillas and enjoy!

Serve with a squeeze of lime juice and a simple side of cumin black beans.

Serves 2-4
