Fajitas — Gluten Free Vegan Style

Fajitas are one of my favorite Mexican dishes (who am I kidding, MEXICAN style food is ALWAYS my favorite dishes!!)  Mexican food is so easy to adjust to Gluten Free Vegan Style …. and I love the Mexican flavors:  avocados, tomatoes, chilli peppers (not too strong, please!), black olves and black beans ….. and now that Gluten Free tortillas are available, I am in heaven!!

My husband and I have a Mexican dish at least once a week.  This week I fixed Fajitas.  Here is my quick and easy recipe:

Fajitas — Gluten Free Vegan Style

Fajitas — Gluten Free Vegan Style


  • 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion, cut in strips
  • 1 medium to large bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 2 large portabello mushrooms, cut in strips (you can use any sliced mushrooms, but portabellos are the best!)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, cut in strips
  • 1-2 tsps of salsa seasoning (or your favorite Mexican seasoning)
  • Gluten free 'flour' style tortillas
  • Toppings: vegenaize, guacamole, fresh cilantro, salsa or picanta sauce


  1. Melt coconut oil in large skillet or Wok style pan.
  2. Add onions and peppers and cook until veggies begin to limp.
  3. Add mushrooms and cook until veggies are soft but not cooked all the way through
  4. Add seasoning and tomatoes and cook for about 1-2 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, warm the tortilla in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds or fry briefly until pliable.
  6. Add veggies and toppings.

Of course, there are many variation to this recipe.  Other options are:

  • Jalapeno or habenero peppers is you like your Fajitas hot
  • A mix of red, green and/or yellow bell peppers
  • Corn or beans to the veggies
  • Top with olives and avocado slices
  • Add vegan cheese and/or sour cream

My favorite Gluten Free ‘flour’ tortillas are made by Rudi, but any GF tortilla will work including listed below.  (Also, some seasoning suggestion as well):
