Whether you're a seasoned vegan chef or just starting out on your plant-based journey, these fajitas are sure to become a new favorite in your kitchen. Not only are they packed with flavor and nutrition, but they're also easy to make and sure to impress your friends and family. So, let's get cooking!

First things first, let's gather our ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 1 cup sliced zucchini

  • 1 cup sliced squash

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 8 small flour tortillas

Now let's get cooking!

  1. Preheat your grill or stovetop griddle over medium-high heat.

  2. In a large bowl, toss the onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, and squash with the olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

  3. Place the vegetables on the grill or griddle and cook until they are tender and slightly charred, about 5-7 minutes.

  4. While the vegetables are cooking, warm the tortillas in the microwave or on the grill.

  5. Once the vegetables are cooked, assemble the fajitas by placing a few slices of the grilled veggies on each tortilla, and then rolling it up.

  6. Serve the fajitas hot with your choice of toppings, such as guacamole, salsa, and vegan sour cream.

  7. Mistakes to avoid:

  8. Don't overcook the vegetables! They should be tender and slightly charred, not mushy and burnt.

  9. Make sure to slice the vegetables evenly so they cook evenly.

  10. Don't skimp on the spices! The cumin, chili powder, and paprika give these fajitas their classic Tex-Mex flavor, so don't be afraid to use a generous amount.


If you're not a fan of bell peppers, you can substitute with any other vegetables you like, such as eggplant, squash, or even sweet potatoes.

For a spicy twist, add a diced jalapeno or two to the vegetable mixture.

Swap out the flour tortillas for corn tortillas to make these fajitas gluten-free.


If you don't have cumin, you can use a combination of ground coriander and ground mustard seeds.

If you don't have chili powder, you can use a combination of ground cumin, paprika, and garlic powder.

If you don't have paprika, you can use a combination of ground cumin and ground chili powder. And there you have it!

Vegan fajitas that are bursting with flavor and sure to satisfy your Tex-Mex cravings. Enjoy!
