Vegan Mexican Fiesta Dinner

Sunday night dinner was more colourful than usual!

 

The past few weeks have been stressful, anxiety-ridden, for the whole world. Every day brings news of more heartache in Europe. While food should never be the answer, sometimes it just is! So I decided to surprise my family with a vegan Mexican Fiesta dinner before we start another week of uncertainty, school, work,  and upsetting world news. 

I decided to share the menu with you when I realized how simple, delicious, nutritious, and budget-friendly the meal was. I am attaching the pictures of the different components and I have added the ingredients below. The measurements can be scaled up or down to suit your family.

 

Vegan Mexican Fiesta Dinner Courses

  • Nachos + guacamole, pico de gallo, salasa
  • Tex-Mex Tofu Fajitas or Tacos

 

Vegan Mexican Fiesta Dinner Ingredients

For the Guacamole:

  • 1 and a half ripe avocado
  • 4 green onions
  • a handful of fresh coriander
  • juice from half a lemon
  • salt to taste

Mash the avocado (I like to leave some chunks) and add the remainder of the ingredients. Mix well.

 

The Salsa and the Nachos were store-bought.

My Pico de Gallo:

  • 1 large juicy grapevine tomato
  • 1/2 red onion
  • Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Dice the tomatoes and onions and season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

Tex-Mex Tofu Fajitas

  • 1/2 block Firm Tex-Mex Flavoured Tofu (sliced in rectangles)
  • 1 large red bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 red onion (sliced)
  • 1 pack store-bought Fajita spices (used 2 tablespoons)
  • Store-bought taco shells and soft tortillas

 

Heat a non-stick pan and add 2 tablespoons of neutral-tasting oil. Saute the bell peppers and onions until soft, add the tofu and the Fajita spices, mix well, add 1/2 cup water, bring to a boil, turn off the heat and cover to let the ingredients steam together until the water is absorbed.

The guacamole and pico de gallo can be used to line the taco shells and tortillas

as well as being the best dip for the Nachos.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoy this Vegan Mexican Fiesta Dinner as much as did!

 

In Christ,

Mireille
