Recipe for Vegan Fajita Bowls

This vegan fajita bowl recipe is easy yet super delicious! The combination of black beans and rice will keep you full for hours & the flavours of fajitas will have you making this over and over again.

All you need is some cooked rice, beans, fajita seasoning and a few other ingredients you would have in fajitas! Feel free to add in other vegetables and switch up the sauces to fit your preference!

If you don’t have a sauce at home for your fajita bowls, I highly recommend the vegan cilanto yogurt dressing I included in this recipe, but it’s totally optional! I just wanted to include a dressing you can make with your fajita bowls 🙂

You can also garnish your fajita bowls with lime wedges, salsa, vegan sour cream, avocado, and/or guacamole!


Meal prep tip: This is an awesome recipe that is great to meal prep in advance! Make all these ingredients separately in the beginning or end of your week and have multiple meals that you can simply heat up and enjoy.
