Vegetable Fajitas with Soft Goat´s Cheese

Easy, nourishing dishes that are quick to prepare are still very much the order of the day here. To make a change from sandwiches, I decided to make fajitas this week. I did have to buy my tortillas, but for a fabulous recipe for home made ones (I can vouch for it, I made them in Spain) take a look at Tandy´s recipe.

Quantities are flexible, and use your favourite veggies or whatever you have to hand. We ate 2 tortillas each for lunch.


  • Finely chopped savoy cabbage
  • Finely shredded carrots, red peppers, onion
  • Finely Sliced Mushrooms
  • A handful of fresh beansprouts
  • Olive oil for stir frying
  • 1 teaspoon of tamarind sauce per person (pinched from my mum´s store cupboard – thanks Mamma!)
  • Pinch of dried chili flakes (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground cumin per person
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 small log of soft goat´s cheese
  • Creamy Natural Yogurt
  • Tortillas for wrapping

Simply stir fry all the vegetables until they start to soften. Add the cumin, chili (if using) and tamarind and cover the pan. Continue to cook until the vegetables are cooked to your liking. Remove the lid if you prefer no juice.

Spoon the vegetables over warmed tortillas which you can spread with yogurt, place a few slices of creamy goat´s cheese on top, roll up and enjoy!

And finally, a totally gratuitous dog shot…at least someone can enjoy the rare bursts of sunshine this week…

Dogs among the rubble

    1. You´re welcome, was so impressed with the recipe! I adore savoy cabbage – it´s great stir fried with bacon. And as for those dogs…they seem to b happy anywhere, even amongst the destruction!

  1. Yummo and thanks for the link to Tandy’s site – one I’ll go back to too.

    We’re tortilla nuts here cos they’re so damned easy. One day I’ll make my own I’m sure of it :o). Great combo with tamarind sauce, cumin and soft cheese amongst it all. Yummo.

  2. I will basically stuff my face with anything that has goats cheese 🙂 These look delicious. I can’t wait to check out that tortilla recipe! I’ve been thinking about trying them from scratch for a while, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
    And your dogs are pretty cute 🙂

  3. Love a versatile meal you can wrap up in a blanket like this and eat one-handed…sometimes there’s just nothing better. Your pups are looking quite content basking in the sun there Tanya. Hope for you all that it lasts a good long while there!

    1. Will check it out tomorrow when I am off the dongle and onto the “real” internet. I know I´ll love it as I always enjoy what you send me! Is the work with the German film crew over now? Want to make a movie about 2 mad folk who are restoring old houses in Bexhill?!

      1. I thought the Paralympic work was all over, but today they gave me a couple more days transcoding the video. I’d love to see your house though, I bet you are doing a great job 😉

  4. What troupers your dogs are! When we renovated our home in town, we have a piteous photo of our dog Bezial curled up covered in dust looking like a gypsy cur in one of our covered armchairs. Nothing like seal pup eyes to make you feel guilty! Your dogs appear to be standing up to the rigour of renovation in a sterling manner! Despite their decided gypsy surrounds ;). Lovely recipe and I am off to pinch that tortilla recipe to give them a go in the near future. Cheers for a vego recipe by the way 🙂

    1. You´re welcome for the vego recipe – were not vegan or vegetarians, but when I think about it we eat a lot of non meat and dairy food so should post more or these recipes! Yes, those pups also do the sad eye thing sometimes, but mostly they´re just having enormous fun playing in a huge doggy playground!

  5. Love the recipe: oft make variations on the theme for light lunch or even dinner. We get a lot of ‘mountain bread’s and other flatbreads here and they are such an easy and fast way to a great meal! Clever pups: not just in the sun but obviously out of the wind 🙂 !

  6. Oh look, a tortilla in Spain that looks just like a tortilla in Texas, not like a potato pie! (kidding!!) Mmmm… Sounds awfully good…!! “tamarind sauce”?? I’ll have to do some homework!

  7. This sounds terrific, Tanya, and perfect for you 2 worker bees. The meals need not be fancy, just nourishing and, above all else, easy to prepare. Your adding goat cheese puts these above all others. Great idea!

    1. We´re really enjoying all the lovely cheeses we can get here which we don´t find at home. And as for busy bees…such an apt description! Hope your trip is going well 🙂 Hugs to Zia – we made pasta last night and talked of you!

I love to hear what you think, please leave me a comment!
