Mushroom Fajita Bowl

Image
Today's post is a recipe for this delicious fajita bowl. I had groceries delivered a few times in January and apparently you are no exempt from buying too much when you're ordering online. I got some frozen veggies to keep on hand since I kept wasting the fresh stuff but then I ordered more fresh stuff when I had the stuff in the freezer... I'm pretty smart :)
Anyway, I got caught up on the fresh stuff so onto the frozen stuff. However, you can obviously use fresh peppers and onions for this recipe, I just happened to have a frozen mix of red, green, and yellow peppers, and onions that was perfect for fajitas! I also had fresh mushrooms that needed to be used so I sliced those babies up and sauteed them in olive oil for a few minutes before adding the frozen mix.
I used my Epicure fajita seasoning mix but it can be replaced with a homemade mix or store bought, whatever works for you.

This recipe made enough for two smaller portions since I don't eat large meals, norma…

Veggie Sushi

Hello friends!
I feel like I've been stuck in a slump the past few months just making the same things over and over again. I forgot about making sushi until a few weeks ago and I've had it 3 times now. It's SO easy to make and you can put literally anything you want in it.
I like to use what I have on hand and most of the time I go with avocado, bell pepper, carrot, and cucumber. I like to julien everything so it's easier to roll up. I do have a sushi mat but you can use plastic wrap to assist you and make less of a mess.
You can use any rice but I happened to buy sushi/sticky rice. If you don't have sticky rice you can mix in rice vinegar and sugar to assist in making it sticky.
Cook your rice according to package instructions and let it cool to at least room temperaturePut your nori (seaweed) on your plastic wrap and spread out about 1 cup of cooked and cooled rice. Spread it to each edge sideways but leave 1 inch at both the top and bottom edgesAdd your fillings…
