Vegan Spiralized Fajita Bowls

We’re back with another episode of my #EverydayInspiralized video cooking series, and this time around, we’re making my Vegan Spiralized Fajitas Bowls.

Seriously, it’s tough to ever think about slicing a bell pepper or onion again, after the Inspiralizer – and this video shows exactly why. You can effortlessly slice onions and bell peppers with the Inspiralizer.

This is a meal I make when I’m craving Mexican, but I don’t want to order in, go out to dinner, or fall off my healthy track. It’s vegan, gluten-free, filling, colorful, and flavorful. While this recipe is vegan, if you want something heartier, any typical fajita meat works (think steak, chicken, shrimp, etc.)

And don’t be put off by the refried beans: they’re SO good! I buy Amy’s Organics low-sodium vegan refried beans and honestly, I put them in everything – I mix them in with quinoa, I add them to wraps, use them as a spread on sandwiches and of course, use them in bowl meals like this one!

Vegan Spiralized Fajita Bowls

Ingredients

  • For the fajita seasoning:
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • For the fajitas:
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 red bell peppers Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1 green bell pepper Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1 white onion Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup vegetarian refried beans I used Amy’s
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • chopped cilantro to garnish

Instructions

  • Mix together all of the ingredients for the fajita seasoning in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add in the peppers and onions. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until they soften slightly. Then, add in the tomato paste and stir constantly until paste coats the vegetables. Add in the fajita seasoning and toss again to coat the vegetables. Add in the vegetable broth and let cook for 5 minutes more until the vegetables soften and the moisture makes a sauce.
  • While the vegetables cook, place a small pot over medium-high heat and add in the refried beans. Cook the beans, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
  • Divide the fajitas into plates and top with refried beans and avocado. Garnish with cilantro.

Great recipe and video! Might need to get myself a wok :) If I were to add chicken, how would I do this?
Ali Maffucci says:
Just add sliced cooked chicken as the peppers are cooking for flavor!

preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. dredge the shrimp in egg and dip in panko (toss the panko with paprika, onion, chili, & garlic powder, salt, and cumin.) add in a single layer to the air fryer and cook for 7-10 minutes, flipping halfway through (they’re done when golden brown and C-shaped.) spread some guacamole on the tortillas and top with shrimp, cabbage tossed with juiced lime, pineapple mango salsa, and drizzle with the bottled crema. easy peasy! 👏🏼 ⁣

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas
...

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
