Vegan seitan fajitas

This week, we are trying out some southwestern vegan cooking. I have always loved chicken fajitas and knew it would be simple to modify a chicken fajita recipe. I have not eaten chicken or turkey in 2 weeks! Woot!

Our friend Ty's recipe for seitan (see one of my previous posts for the recipe) lasted 1 whole week; it was the equivalent of a bag of frozen chicken!

So, with some simple changes, my chicken fajitas go vegan: chicken=seitan, sour cream= Tofutti "sour cream", cheese=Daiya "cheese".

Seitan Fajitas

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

    1 medium onion
    1 green, red or golden pepper cut in long thin slices
    1/2 pound seitan
    1/2 teaspoon cumin
    1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    Tofutti vegan sour cream
    Daiya vegan cheese
    Chopped fresh cilantro
    Organic tortillas


Saute onions and peppers in a little oil until tender.  Add in the seitan, cumin and chili powder, and cook until seitan is hot.  Fold into a hot tortilla. Serve with cilantro, vegan sour cream, vegan cheese, rice and beans. Makes 3-4 fajitas.
