50 Shades of Jazz ~ Jazz Bytes ~ Angela’s Awesome Vegan Fajitas with Tin Tin Deo featuring James Moody on the Side.

It’s that day of the week again!  Growing up Saturday was my cleaning ritual of my apartment, my all time favorite, laundry and grocery shopping.  It was my day to celebrate life and clearing my home and life for the wonders that waited for me.  It was my segue to spiritually resetting my week beginning with Sunday.  “Feng Shui”ing the mind and body and spirit.  Nothing profound. Just a necessary evil. I am doing it with a new attitude though, happy. I am looking forward to Sunday. Then all this will be behind me until next Saturday.  Now as part of my repertoire was donning my dancin’ shoes and dropping the needle on my father’s arrangement of Tin Tin Deo.  Dave Sanborn released his version in 2009 here is my dad’s version

Vegan Frijitas

Tags: avocado, bean, broccoli, capsicum, carrot, cilantro, easy, mexican, mushroom, tofu, tortilla, under 30 minutes

One of my favorite types of food is Mexican food. Maybe it’s the fact that beans plus rice make such a great nutritional combination, or that putting guacamole on everything is perfectly acceptable. That’s probably the real reason!

Fajitas are so easy because you don’t really need a recipe to make them. I start by lightly frying some strips of tofu or slices of Portobello mushrooms, which add some nice density to the fajitas. From there, I add strips of bell peppers (capsicum), broccoli, carrots, loose or refried beans and a little bit of Mexican rice or quinoa. I don’t have a recipe, as I just stir-fry the everything in a bit of lemon juice, cumin, and chili. I top everything off with guacamole, fresh salsa, cilantro (coriander), and the occasional dollop of vegan sour cream. Heaven! (And so much cheaper to make at home than the exorbitant prices that restaurants charge!) Oh, and if I don’t have any tortillas, I just toss everything into a bowl. “Mexican bowls” are even easier but just as delicious!  Bon Appétit!  JBC 8-)
