A super easy fajita bowl for those busy days. Aka a delicious meal that you can throw together after work.

Super Easy Fajita Bowl

Seriously like OMG. I know I sound like a teenager but it has been crazy around here today. Between the kids and the visitors, I have barely had a minute to sit down. On crazy days like these, I make food like this super easy fajita bowl. However I am fasting today and have leftovers to deal with and a worktop brimming with fresh fruit that I can’t have going off. Yesterday I made wild rice burgers and they were insanely good. Like so so good. I love food that has texture and always have done. It isn’t always about taste and balance of flavour alone. I think I mentioned that in my Crispy Sea Bass and Dahl recipe. Ok I just checked and I totally didn’t mention that. La la la.

Hmmmmok how did we get here? Oh yes, I got distracted into talking about food I made yesterday. This recipe by the way is one that is included in our FREE Ramadan Ebook which is lingering currently on our front page. BTW I can never type FREE without putting it into CAPSLOCK. It’s so strange I know.

Anyway this Fajita bowl is basically a type of cajun chicken quickly stir fried in a pan, onions and peppers stir fried, avocado and bulgar wheat or rice. You can also add a soft boiled egg and sour cream if you want to but it isn’t necessary. This is just the way my husband likes it. I usually have this with bulgar wheat because it is more filling. Also I have run out of rice and that has never happened in almost 7 years of my marriage. My mum would be horrified. She would promptly put me on the naughty step if I told her. Which I wont. Asians are not supposed to run out of rice in my mums invisible imaginary rule book.
