Zucchini Fajitas

For those who like to do Meatless Monday!
Low Carb & Meatless!! You will NOT miss the chicken!! PROMISE!!
2-3 small/medium zucchinis (washed)
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper (or any color of your choice!)
1 Small Red Onion
1 Garlic Clove
1 Packet of Dry Fajitas Seasoning (ex. Ole El Paso's Low Sodium)
6-8 Romaine Lettuce Leaves (or other crunchy lettuce leaf of your choice)
*Optional Toppings*
Chopped Tomato
Chopped Avocado
Red onions
Greek Yogurt (Plain)
Shredded Cheese
Cut both peppers and red onion into strips. Cut zucchinis into spears...
Cook peppers & onion in a bit of olive oil (med. heat), until tender crisp (approx. 4-6 mins). Place in separate bowl. Cook zucchini spears with a bit of olive oil & crushed garlic clove until tender crisp... (approx. 5-7mins, depending how thick you cut them)... once zucchinis are done, add cooked peppers & onion to the pan to reheat... stir in your dry Fajitas spice packet (add a bit of water per the directions on the packet)...simmer until ready.
Toppings used here are chopped tomatoes, chopped avocado, salsa, plain Greek yogurt (to replace sour cream)...and a bit of chopped red onion on top!
Highly recommend enjoying them with the Romaine Lettuce leaves... or you can also use your favorite tortilla wraps!
Serves 2-4 People
