Vegetarian Fajitas

Vegetarian Fajitas Recipe – Easy Sheet Pan Meal!

Vegetarian Fajitas Recipe is incredibly easy because we use a sheet pan to get all the flavor with way less work and cleanup. 

Vegetarian Fajitas

These veggie fajitas are loaded with flavor and are super filling. By using a blend of spices, we pack plenty of smoky flavor into these amazing vegetables. I love loading these up with peppers, onions, squash, and mushrooms. However, I also love trying new combinations and have added potatoes, radishes, and rutabaga too! (At one point my CSA was sending me A LOT of rutabagas).

Techniques for a perfect Vegetarian Fajitas Recipe

  • Because of the delicious mix of Tex-Mex influenced spices, just about any vegetable tastes great in here. If I didn’t include your favorite, add it in and let me know the result in the comments! 
  • If you adjust your veggies, you may need to adjust your cooking times. Just keep an eye out and pull the vegetables out when they are tender but not soggy.
  • Accompaniments are key. I’ve linked to some of my favorite toppings, but be sure to include your favorite salsa or hot sauce. Avocado is also a great topping that helps cool down the spice. 

Ingredients for Vegetarian Fajitas

  • Taco Truck Green Sauce: This is my favorite salsa for fajitas. It is packed with flavor and is super easy to make.
  • Homemade Pico De Gallo: Fresh pico de gallo piles even more flavor onto your veggie fajitas.
  • Vegetables: I like using portabello mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, and poblano pepper. Feel free to add in your favorites or take out any that you don’t love!
  • Seasonings: Since we are cooking this easy weeknight meal in the oven instead of on the grill, I like to make sure to add some smoky spices like ancho chili powder and smoked paprika, along with salt and pepper.
  • Avocado: I love avocado with fajitas, the creaminess really balances out all the bright and smoky flavors.
  • Tortillas: I usually use flour because they hold together so well, but corn tortillas are wonderful in this vegetarian fajita recipe as well!

How to Make Vegetarian Fajitas

  1. Prepare the Taco Truck Green Sauce and Homemade Pico De Gallo according to their recipes.
  2. Preheat the oven.
  3. .On a parchment-lined baking sheet pan, toss together the sliced vegetables with the seasonings and oil. Roast the vegetables until they begin to brown.
  4. Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and heat them on high in a microwave for about 1 minute until they are warm. The damp paper towel steams the tortillas to help make them pliable.
  5. Arrange cooked vegetables and avocado on a serving plate. Serve with Pico de Gallo, Taco Truck Green Sauce, and warm tortillas.
