Vegetarian fajitas

Vegetarian fajitas

Veggie fajitas are a fun way to feed the family and making your own is much cheaper than buying the boxed kits.


For the salsa

To serve

  • 4 soft tortillas
  • 2 tbsp plain yoghurt or soured cream


  1. For the filling, heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion, chilli and garlic until softened. Stir in the ground cumin and coriander and cook for a few seconds. Add the beans and cook for a further 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add half a small glass of stock and cook until smooth and not runny. Stir in the lime juice and half the fresh coriander.

  2. Mash the beans roughly with the back of a fork or a potato masher, then set aside.

  3. For the salsa, mix together the tomatoes, red onion, lime juice and coriander.

  4. Just before you are ready to eat, add the remaining coriander and a squeeze of lime juice to the beans.

  5. Warm each tortilla through in a pan and put on a plate. Spoon over some of the filling, add a dollop of the yoghurt and a little salsa. Roll up and serve two tortillas per person.
