Vegan Veggie Fajitas

I am sooo blessed to have a Man who loves to cook!

We recently ate at a Mexican restaurant and loved the veggie fajitas they served.
The-Man-of-the-Place decided he could learn to make them at home,
and I'll be switched if he hasn't done a great job of replicating them.

First boil some potatoes until they are almost done,
cool them and dice or slice them up.
Chop up whatever other veggies you like and have them ready
before you begin cooking the whole dish--it's kind of like making stir-fry.
As I recall, the restaurant had potatoes, carrots (julienned), onions,
green and red peppers, broccoli, and mushrooms.
You get the idea--just put in whatever you like.
I think the potatoes are the most important though.

We melt a little coconut oil in the pan--
it tolerates the heat better than other vegetable oils.
Throw in the potatoes and cook them,
then add the other veggies and stir-fry them too.

The-Man's secret to getting that smoky-grill flavor
without using animal fat is to put
1 Tablespoon liquid smoke in
1/4 cup water, stir well, and
sprinkle over the whole mixture while keeping it moving in the pan.
We also season it with some Herbalmare (herb infused sea salt)
You can add other seasonings as you like,
some garlic powder and onion powder would be great!

Here's more of our current outdoor kitchen--
the Man loves his cooking gear!
(I'm grateful any time he cooks!)

When everything is seasoned to your taste
and cooked well but the veggies are still a little crisp...

...throw it in a whole wheat tortilla,
top with whatever you like...
salsa, soy sour cream, lettuce, soy cheese...
wrap it all up and have a feast!
