Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1⁄2 red onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 small orange bell pepper, seeded and sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 small zucchini, cut into thirds lengthwise and sliced into small strips (about 2 cups)
  • 1 small summer squash (yellow zucchini), prepared the same way (about 2 cups)
  • 1-2 tablespoons Fajita Spice Mix (see page 108 of Flavilicious Cooking for recipe)
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large sauté pan, preferably a good quality nonstick. Add onions and sauté over medium / medium-low heat until translucent and sweetened (about 5 minutes).
  2. Add mushrooms and sauté until softened (5 minutes). Add garlic and spice mix, sauté until fragrant, ensuring not to burn garlic (1 minute).
  3. Add remainder of ingredients and sauté, tossing continuously, just until softened, but with some crunch remaining (about 5 minutes).
  4. Can be enjoyed right away or cooled and re-warmed in the oven at 300F for 10-12 minutes.
Notes
Make extra veggies and chop them up after cooking for a frittata filling.

Enjoy these as a side to any protein, or add grilled and sliced fajita flank steak over top when serving onto each dinner plate.
