Bean and Mushroom Fajitas [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



For the Seasoning:

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder

For the Fajitas:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced in long slices
  • 1 14-ounce can kidney beans (1 1/2 cups)
  • 10 White Button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 large tortillas (gluten-free if desired)

For the Toppings (Optional):


To Make the Seasoning:

  • Mix together in a small bowl.
  • If you want to warm up the tortillas, wrap them in parchment paper and place in the oven at 400°F for 10 – 15 minutes, until warm to touch.

To Make the Fajitas:

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the peppers and onion and sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Add the kidney beans and white mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Mix the fajita seasoning and water in a small glass until seasoning is completely dissolved in the water. Add to the vegetables and cook for 2-3 more minutes, until most of the water evaporates.
  • Divide the vegetable mixture among the 4 tortillas.


The vegetable/bean mixture can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply fry in a large pan over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
