Fajitas And A Vegan Heap Of Dessert

May 10, 2010 by Keri

Fajita night!  What’s better than tasty stuff piled in a whole wheat tortilla?  I don’t know either.  For dinner I cooked black beans and brown rice, smashed pinto beans, sautéed red peppers, green peppers, and onions.  I also thawed some Daiya cheddar shreds (I keep some frozen) and broke out the salsa. They were so good; I love sautéed onions and peppers.  Luckily for a leftover lover like me, there is plenty left for lunches this week.  Maybe I’ll even have a vegan fajita salad.  Yum!

For a vegan dessert, I made a delicious chocolate raspberry trifle, which I thought my husband called a heap of dessert.  It turns out he said he wanted a heap of dessert, but since it does sort of look that way I decided I’d go with it.  First I baked the basic vanilla cake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World, allowed it to cool, and crumbled half into a large bowl.  I then layered in raspberries, followed by the remaining cake and topped off with chocolate ganache, recipe also from VCTOTW.

Even though I may have managed to drip chocolate everywhere while trying to do too many things at once, this dessert was rich and delicious.  I happened to get tackled by a chocolate coated toddler who also enjoyed the treat.  Luckily, chocolate isn’t too tough to get out of clothes!  Before I started my post, I took a look at my reader and Jessica, The Domestic Vegan, included a link in her post everyone should read.  I hope she doesn’t mind me posting the link as well, but with spending yesterday honoring our own mothers, I think it’s appropriate to take a look at dairy from this perspective. I hope everyone had a great day!

    Mmm I’m feeling the fajita love! I’ll be enjoying “tacos” for lunch all week as well – they are so healthy(ish) yummy and easy!! Happy belated Mother’s Day!! 🙂 I thought for sure we’d see some more Vegan Cookies for the occasion!

    I love fajitas. It’s been a while since I have made some. I can’t find some great tasting gluten free wraps! Maybe I should simply use a big chard leave…

      Hmm… yeah, I can’t say I’ve heard rave reviews on any of the GF wraps. Maybe you could make your own tortillas! 🙂 Or lettuces are delicious as well!
