Quick Pepper-Burger Fajita

Our first share of veggies from the CSA came today. It was a week earlier than anticipated because our farmer had a lot of vegetables that he had already harvested! I came home and had a fresh vegetable salad - mixed greens, lettuce, organic carrots (not from CSA), radish and black beans and corn with some salsa as the dressing. YUM!!

Dinner was a quick Pepper Burger Fajita - where clean up is easy. The peppers and burgers are baked in aluminum foil. You can eat this with anything. I ate mine with a warm tortilla with some Tofu cream cheese spread spread on the tortilla. I did not really wrap it into a fajita, but just ate it on the side. I also added some green chile salsa on the cooked mix!

Pepper - Burger Fajita


1 Yellow onion, sliced
1 Green pepper, sliced
1 Red pepper, sliced
4 Vegan burgers, sliced
2 T lemon juice
2 T fajita seasoning
2 Jalapeno chillis, seeded and cut
1/4 C cilantro, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl.

Cut pieces of aluminum foil and add the ingredients into the foil. Make sure there is enough room to bring the sides of the foil together and crimp it closed.

Bake for 20-30 minutes.
Vent to let some air out and enjoy!!


  1. Yummy. This is a good, quick idea. What kind of burgers did you buy? Boca? I am not crazy about the Morningstar steak (or chicken) strips. Maybe because I never really liked steak much.

  2. I think we have Morning Star burgers' 'Mushroom Lovers' Burger. I am still trying to find something that's vegan and I like - I got some from TJ's that are vegan and I like.

  3. Mike hates mushrooms or I probably would have tried these. I love mushrooms, especially sauteed.
