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!
Sarah says:

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
