Seitan Fajitas


  1. 2 pkgs seitan, break up or slice into pieces (I like Westsoy brand)
    1 Tbs olive oil
    1/2 large red onion, sliced
    1 large red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
    3 cloves minced garlic
    1 packet fajita mix + 1/2-3/4 C water
    Tofutti sour cream
    Rice cheese, shredded, cheddar flavor
    cilantro, chopped
    sliced avocado (optional)
    Flour tortillas (I like Whole Foods brand--organic and small. They come in whole wheat, fat free and Homestyle (white). I like the taste and that they are the perfect size. Small, so I don't feel like I have to load up a large tortilla. I can always make 2 if I want more).


Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until tender, 3-5 mins. Add seitan and saute for 10-12 mins. Combine the fajita mix with the water and add to the pan. Coat veggies and seitan and cook for 2 mins on med-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cover for about 3 mins.

I like to spread a Tbs or so of Tofutti sour cream on a warmed tortilla, then add a bit of cilantro, then seitan mixture and top with rice cheese and salsa. If I have avocado, I'll add 1-2 slices on top. Roll up and enjoy!
