Fajita Samosas

1:00 h

If you're looking for a quick plant-based lunch or perhaps some vegan party food, the BOSH! Fajita samosas recipe really is a great choice. Riffing off the success of our burrito samosa a few years ago (see bosh.tv) we decided a fajita samosa would go down a storm. And boy were we right! These bad boys really are the best of both worlds. A crunchy triangle of juicy Mexican flavours. Plus, the king oyster mushrooms are super chicken-y, so it's just like your favourite chicken fajita recipe! A truly scrumptious vegan snack idea.

Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C | Microplane | Jug | Large mixing bowl | 2 baking trays lined with parchment

First, make the Fajita Marinade

  • Peel and finely grate the garlic
  • Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into a mixing bowl
  • Add all the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix with a fork to form a smooth marinade, add a splash of water if your marinade is too thick

Now, prepare the Fajita Vegetables

  • Trim, halve, core and slice the peppers
  • Peel, halve and cut the onion into slices
  • Cut the caps off the mushrooms and slice
  • Pull strips off the stems of the mushrooms until they’re well shredded (the strips should look like pulled chicken)
  • Add the mushrooms to a bowl, pour over half the marinade and toss to coat
  • Transfer the marinated mushrooms to the baking tray, put the tray in the oven and roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through
  • While the mushrooms are in the oven, put the peppers and onions in the bowl, pour over the remaining marinade and toss to cover
  • Put the peppers and onions on a tray, put the tray in the oven and roast for 20-30 minutes stirring halfway through

Now, make the Fajita Samosas

  • Take a tortilla and lay it out on a clean work surface
  • Spoon one-fifth of the fajita vegetables (peppers, onions and mushrooms) and place it in the centre of the tortilla
  • Put one-fifth of the dairy-free cheese on top of the fajita mix
  • Shape the filling roughly into triangles with your hands, making sure the triangle is in the middle of the tortilla and reasonably well packed
  • Brush around the edges of the tortilla with water (this will act as a glue to stick the Fajita Samosas together)
  • Fold the edges of the tortilla into the middle to form a triangle
  • Turn the samosa upside down and put them on a lined baking tray, fold side down
  • Repeat with the remaining ingredients
  • Put the tray in the oven and bake for 20–25 minutes, until the samosas are crisp to the touch
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately with guacamole for dipping (recipe in BISH BASH BOSH!)
