This Roasted Portobello Fajitas recipe is a healthy recipe even the meat lovers will enjoy!
I first published this recipe way back in 2011. Hard to believe! It’s been a favorite for years, but needed some fresh pictures, so I took some new photographs and am republishing it so new readers can discover it. Too many of you probably missed this buried in the archives and it’s a good one! The rest of the text is from 2011 except the update at the end. I hope you give this one a try!
One of the most frequent questions I get is, “How do I get my man to agree to more meatless meals?” The best way is to start with his favorite meals.
Brainstorm ways you can take the meat out and add something that can take its place. That way, you are delivering him the flavors he already likes and just making a few changes to make the meal without the standard ingredient.
I’m featuring one of those meals today. If your man likes steak fajitas, he’ll like these roasted portobello fajitas. Portobello mushrooms are an excellent stand-in for meat. They have a hearty texture and absorb flavors well when marinated. Tim was super impressed and I think your guy will be, too.
I just realized I’m sounding a little sexist. Even though the majority of my readers are female, I shouldn’t assume women are always the healthier-eating gender. I know it can be the other way around. Sometimes it’s the man who has to persuade the woman to eat better. So if you are a guy reading this, just change the word “man” to “woman” in the previous paragraphs. Better yet, let’s just say “your person.” 🙂
I feel better now. On to the recipe.
If you make this or any Happy Healthy Mama recipe, I would love to see it! Take a quick pic and share it on Instagram or Facebook and tag me @happyhealthymama 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you’re making!
I updated these photos just in time for Cinco de Mayo! Even though fajitas are technically Tex-Mex, I think these would be a great way to bring some Mexican flavors to your kitchen for the Mexican celebration.
You need a margarita with them, of course. You can make this Classic Margarita Recipe that is a favorite by everyone who tries it, OR I have a new margarita recipe coming your way on Friday. Hint: buy some blanco tequila, Cointreau, and fresh or frozen mango! Coming Soon—>
