Vegan “Steak” Fajitas

Vegan Mushroom FajitasOh my goodness these are amazing!  In fact they are kind of hard to beat!  I’d prefer these over real steak any day!


4-6 portobello mushrooms, stems and scales removed and sliced 1/2-inch wide

2 tablespoons good olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Fresh ground pepper

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 large thinly sliced red bell pepper

1 large thinly sliced yellow or orange bell pepper

1 medium yellow onion sliced thinly

Place the sliced mushrooms in the oil, lime juice, oregano, cumin, chili powder and salt and pepper.  Allow to marinate for 20 minutes.  On a large griddle saute the coconut oil, peppers and onions until softened.  Add the mushrooms and grill for 3-5 minutes.  Serve with tortillas, avocado, salsa, cilantro and even sour cream and cheddar cheese if you want to!
