Dad’s Fajitas

Went to my dad’s new flat today for dinner and he made me fajitas :)

He’s just turned veggie so he wanted to experiment a little on me, and they were lovely – not at all like any fajitas I’ve had before, and it was nice to have someone cook for me for once; I’ve been doing all my own cooking every day for the last few months at uni and it’s nice to just sit and eat with no hassle.

He sent me the website that he got the recipe from, so I’m definitely doing it again:Β

Dad and the wok.

Vegan fajitas


1 tablespoon of Β olive oil

1 red, 1 yellow and 1 green pepper

1 carrot

3 spring onion

1 garlic clove

One tablespoon of Cajun seasoning (cayenne pepper, cumin, etc.)

6 tablespoons of fresh tomato salsa

4 tortillas


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the peppers and carrots, and fry for 5-6 minutes until softened. Add the spring onions, garlic and Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring continuously, for 1 minute adding a little water if necessary to prevent the mixture sticking.
  2. Spoon a little of the tomato salsa into the middle of each tortilla. Top with a quarter of the vegetables and then fold the tortilla over loosely. You can serve with salad if you want (I did but didn’t really eat mine because I don’t like rocket)
Makes enough for 4 fajitas
About 228 calories per serving – depends on your brand of tortilla (we used Discovery ones)
