Vegan fajitas

Spicy mexican dinner! Yes, please. Before I have become a vegetarian, we used to make chicken fajitas now and then, and I used to love it. Ever since I stopped eating meat I don’t think we have made these.. till now. I am so glad I remembered this recipe because it is really easy and tasty. In addition, soya cubes are lot easier to prepare than the actual chicken.


1 red onion

Small red, green and yellow bell pepper

50g soya cubes – I used Good Earth brand

2 tbsp olive oil

1 big clove garlic

1 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp sweet paprika

3/4 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp chilli flakes or fresh chilli pepper

Lemon juice

To serve:

4 wholegrain tortillas

Soya greek yogurt – I used alpro


  • Soak the soya cubes in hot water.
  • In the meantime, cut your onions and peppers into thin stripes. Heat the oil in a wok and add vegetables in it alongside with minced garlic and chilli. Saute for about 20 minutes (add water to prevent burning if needed).
  • In a small jar combine smoked paprika, sweet paprika, coriander and cumin together.
  • When the vegetables is almost done, drain the soya cubes, squeeze the water out and put it in the wok. Season with your prepared seasonings and mix well.
  • Turn the heat off and drizzle with lemon juice.
  • Spread greek yoghurt on the tortilla, add the fajitas mixture, close off and grill on a heated pan from all sides. Cut in half and serve.
