If you make this in advance be sure to add the avocado if using just before you’re going to eat. It should be fresh. Otherwise the avocado will brown and can’t keep fresh on your plate.

Going back to the roots with this Vegetarian Fajita Pasta
Let’s have a fun talk about fajitas. They are traditionally made with meat, no surprise. Frequently it’s beef from time to time people will use pork, chicken, or shrimps.
Served with a wheat tortilla, guacamole, sour cream and some cheese. That’s nothing close to vegan and gluten free. What you can see is the most important ingredient in all these variations is the protein component.
A must make which you can find in this Vegetarian Fajita Pasta by adding black beans. Put even more protein in and optionally add corn.
So here we have 2 great protein resources, super easy and delicious.
I can happily confirm while the black beans are so filling, there is absolutely no need for meat. This is the way to go if you’re a looking to incorporate some more veggies in your nutrition.
It’s easy and fun and seriously good food.
Take a picture, share the fun, cheers Florian.
