Vegan Fajitas

After going to the Saturday market and scoring some great local honey (I know ... not vegan) and organic carrots, I decided to try making Seitan for the first time. Not by scratch however, I had already purchased Westoy's Seitan Strips from Whole Foods when I saw them on sale. After searching the net for vegan recipes, I've basically memorized how to make Seitan and do plan on it after I use up what I've bought.

We also purchased 'daiya' mozzarella style cheese as well as cheddar style cheese. So, for lunch I needed to use up a green pepper I had in the fridge, and I was craving fajitas from Mi Pueblos the night before.

1/3 onion 
3/4 green pepper
4 oz seitan
extra virgin olive oil
tortilla wraps

Sautee onions and pepper in olive oil until onion is translucent and the peppers are very tender. Add seitan and cook for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with whatever you like eating fajitas with. 

I enjoyed it with the daiya chedder style cheese and hot sauce. I'm looking into alternatives for a sauce base that would be somewhat comparable to sour cream. I think I'll try to make whatever they put in those tacos last night!
