For Savory Fajitas Without The Meat, Use Roasted Sweet Potatoes
If you want vegan or vegetarian fajitas, don’t forgo the star ingredient and just substitute the meat with sweet potatoes. The vegetable is a hearty alternative.
Sweet potatoes skimp on neither flavor nor texture. When roasted, they are soft yet crispy, with a caramelized effect that complements other common fajita fillings.
For vegan fajitas, it’s best to roast the sweet potatoes in the oven. Season the vegetable with salt, pepper, and olive oil, and roast it at 450 or 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the potatoes are ready and seasoned, build the fajitas normally with a combination of other roasted vegetables, lime juice, and cheese. The meat won’t be missed.
