This is one of our most popular go-to vegan meals, best suited to those ‘I really can’t be bothered’ nights – like Mondays.
Fajitas are a super fun, Mexican favourite, with typical recipes involving meat. However, when we first went vegan, finding ideal substitutes for one of our most over-used meals was high on our priority list. Vegan fajitas don’t have to be lacking in filling or flavour! We even have a variety of ways to change up our Spicy Vegan Fajitas, so if like us you are likely to eat these on a regular basis, you won’t get tired of eating the same thing.

About the Ingredients
When it comes to choosing ingredients for these Spicy Vegan Fajitas, we like to choose the items with the lowest carbon footprint and the least packaging waste.
Tomato paste is a great item to keep plenty of in your vegan kitchen. It helps form the base of many vegan sauces, giving a seasoning like this fajita one a thicker consistency. It also stores really well so you’re less likely to waste any of it and it can be brought in recyclable packaging, from tubes to small tin cans. Trust us, it’s a vegan cooking staple.
Homemade Fajita Seasoning
If you’re not confident at making your own fajita seasoning from scratch, there are ample choices in the shops for pre-mixed fajita seasoning. However, the tastiest fajitas, vegan or not, are those where all the ingredients are as fresh and natural as possible. We love using products like cumin seeds in many of our recipes and these vegan fajitas are one of them. It’s cheaper to buy cumin seeds in larger quantities and they are easily available online, if you can’t find them in the supermarket.
Along with cumin seeds, you’ll need oregano and cayenne pepper. Wherever possible, buy these in recyclable glass jars. Once we’ve purchased these once, we like to re-use the glass jars in local refill shops, like The Refill Room in Leigh on Sea. If you don’t know of a refill shop near you, get in touch with us today and we’ll help you discover one. They’re great fun if you want to shop zero waste style!
