Vegetarian Portobello Mushroom Fajitas
These Vegetarian Portobello Mushroom Fajitas are a healthy 30 minute meal for busy nights. You can even get a head start on this recipe by prepping ahead!
The last 30 minute (or less!) dinner that I shared was this 20 Minute Healthy Taco Salad recipe. I guess I’ve been craving Mexican flavors because this month for 30 Minute Thursday we have these delicious Vegetarian Portobello Mushroom Fajitas on the menu!
You’ll love this recipe because you can either make it all at once in just half an hour, or you can prep part of it ahead to make your dinner-making process even faster. You know, for those nights when you’re just getting home and have basically no time to get dinner on the table before heading out to your kids’ softball game or swim practice.
To meal prep these Vegetarian Portobello Mushroom Fajitas:
- Chop the mushrooms, bell peppers and onion, place in a zip-top bag in the refrigerator.
- Whisk together all marinade ingredients, store in the refrigerator.
- If you like, you can even cook the veggies and then just reheat at dinner time.
I serve these fajitas with smashed avocado and black beans for protein. My kids aren’t big on mushrooms or onions, but I’m sure to offer them the veggies as well as beans and cheese for filling their tortillas. If they’re exposed to new foods enough times, they will discover new flavors that they enjoy.
In the meantime, you’ll be happy knowing that you can cook one dinner that everyone can customize to their own preferences. In my house, that means mostly beans and cheese for the kids, and lots of vegetables for me! (The recipe doesn’t call for cheese, but I grate some for my kids to have with their fajitas.)
My friends also have some delicious recipes to share with you this 30 Minute Thursday! (On the first Thursday of every month we each share a 30 minute dinner recipe.) I’m saving these to add to my meal plans in the coming weeks!
