Fajitas! Fajitas! Fajitas!
Did you ever get fajitas when you were a kid, okay adult, and get so excited when that sizzling pan and MOUNTAIN of food got delivered to your table?
Yeah me too. Okay, so let’s do that at home! This is a really amazing + simple recipe to make at home fajitas with seasonal treats like carrots, sweet potato, cauliflower, and so much more! We char the cauliflower with sautéed veggies then top them with tons of TREATS - cilantro, smashed avocado, guajillo salsa, vegan cheese, and so much more!
These fajitas are straight BALLIN’ They shoot and drain 3s all night long. The charred cauliflower is so damn tasty. Try not to nibble them down. We soak them in oil, lemon juic,e and spices and char them on broil. We saute in a castiron pan a bunch of delicious winter veggies.
