Instead of using meat for the fajita, this recipe contains 4 different vegetables that can be switched out and kidney beans as the protein source. Because the mix is served over brown rice instead of the tortilla bread, the vegan fajita rice bowl is also a gluten free meal.

For example: If I see one of the veggies above for a high price (for me that is over $2.00) I will substitute it with another vegetable. You can go to the store’s website and see which items are on sale. That way you can create your meal plan to save money on groceries.
