Sautéed, seasoned veggies are served on top of cilantro lime rice with fresh avocado for a flavorful, easy to make, vegan and gluten free fajita recipe!
Oh hey, it’s Whitney and I’m back with another fresh and delicious bowl recipe!
If you’re a fajita fan, you’re going to absolutely fall in love with this fajita rice bowl that is so quick and easy to make!
The seasoned and sautéed veggies are so flavorful and delicious, I served them over cilantro lime white rice, but you could sub in brown rice or quinoa also, the veggies are really the star of this dish!
You can also play with the toppings if you like. I stuck with fresh sliced avocado, which added the perfect creaminess to the dish, but you could also add black beans, salsa or cheese (if you’re not making the dish vegan.)

- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 cup red onion (sliced)
- 1 cup baby bella mushrooms (sliced)
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 4 tbsp fresh lime juice (app 2 limes) – divided
- 2 cups cooked rice*
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
- 1 avocado (thinly sliced)
*If you don’t already have cooked rice available (I seem to always have extra cooked rice in the refrigerator!) Be sure you start by cooking the rice.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, add the bell pepper and onion, saute 4-5 minutes, then add the baby bella mushrooms, garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, sea salt and 2 tbsp lime juice.
Saute for an additional 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat and set aside.
Toss the cooked rice with the remaining 2 tbsp lime juice and 2 tbsp fresh cilantro. Divide the rice between two bowls, top with the veggie fajitas and avocado.
Easy as that, you have a super scrumptious lunch or dinner that’s totally vegan, gluten free and filled with vitamin-packed veggies!
