Recipe (makes 4 fajitas - 2 servings)
2 portobello mushrooms
1 red onion, cut in stripes
½ red bell pepper, cut in stripes
½ yellow bell pepper, cut in stripes
pinch of salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tamari
1 tsp maple syrup
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp chili powder
½ chipotle (or smoked paprika) powder
½ tsp cumin powder
4 small size tortillas
handful of cilantro and fresh lime for garnish
Cut portobello caps in bite size pieces. Mix 1 tablespoon of olive oil with tamari, maple syrup, garlic powder, chili powder, chipotle powder and cumin. Add the mixture to a bowl with mushrooms and toss until all the pieces are well covered. Set aside.
Heat remaining tablespoon of olive oil on a skillet. Add onion, bell pepper stripes and a pinch of salt, cook for about 8 minutes, until becoming tender on outside but still a bit crunchy inside. Remove from the pan.
Use the same skillet to cook the mushrooms. Cook them on medium heat until nicely caramelized on outside. It will take about 5 minutes.
Add cooked bell peppers and onions to the mushrooms and cook together for one more minute.
Slightly warm the tortillas. Scoop one fourth of the veggies onto each tortilla, sprinkle with chopped coriander and lime juice, serve immediately.
