Any other mushrooms lover in the house? From the very first time I tried mushrooms, I’ve been in love. I loved how easily you could transform them, and the amazing flavour they soaked up. True story though? This is my very first time using portobello mushrooms. I know – insane! I did not realise how much I’ve been missing. Needless to say, after making these Vegan Portobello Fajitas, I’m adding these to my all time favourite mushroom recipes.

P.S. yes – you can TOTALLY make these on the grill this summer too!

These portobello fajitas were to be for later this month, but I just had to share with them you now. I’m in love with all Mexican-inspired dishes, and having tasted them in Tulum, Mexico, I just knew I had to make them at home. Traditional fajitas are made with meat, so naturally I knew I had a few options to make these veggie friendly. Seitan, tempeh, or mushrooms. While you can use those, like I did in my fajita bowl, I wanted to give this a try because FLAVOUR baby! These mushrooms, soak up so much flavour, and make these fajitas so divine. I also love that they don’t weigh down the dish at all, making it light, portable and perfect for a summer dish.

I love how versatile these portobello fajitas are. You know I am always encouraging you to play with your food :), and have fun, and this is no exception! You can switch up the flavours here, add your own vegan or vegetarian cheese, add greens or anything really! I kept it pretty simple with onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms with lots of delicious seasonings. I did not want to hold back on flavour, so these are packed with everything from cumin to chipotle powder to liquid smoke (totally option, but SO good and natural). One bite and you’ll want to make and bring these to your next summer get together.

Like I mentioned earlier, you could definitely make these on your grill. Just season the veggies, and place in a foil pack. Then toast the tortilla/taco shell lightly and place inside. Don’t forget to grab a watermelon mojito to enjoy with it. 😉

Enjoy friends!

    Hi Jessica,
    I can’t wait to try this recipe. It looks incredible! It also lends itself to vary ingredients slightly. I have a garden, so using my fresh veggies and herbs will make it extra yummy. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

      Hi Cindy,

      Thank you!! Oh yes fresh veggies would taste SO delicious in here!! I hope you enjoy! 🙂

    This was delicious! I had cremini mushrooms which I sliced and ‘par-roasted’ in the oven to remove some of the liquid. I did not have liquid smoke but replaced a 1/4 tsp of the paprika with smoked paprika. I served as a bowl with rice, sautéed kale with corn, pico de gallo, and guacamole! This will be added to our regular rotating menu! Thank you

    • Jessica says:

      Oh my – that sounds so good! I’m so glad you enjoyed this Angela and thanks so much for your feedback!! 🙂

  5. Holy cow I forgotten how amazing portobello mushrooms are, so thanks for reminding me! I bet these mushrooms soak up all the amazing flavor in these fajitas!

  6. Love this. I found this same recipe on Pinterest and I love it and now I want to try yours. Thank you for sharing.
