This got rave reviews. My husband is waiting for gall bladder surgery, so he's on a low fat diet for awhile. I reduced the fat content by cooking the veggies over high heat in veggie broth instead of oil until the broth was essentially gone, then finished off with more veggie broth mixed with fajita seasoning (using a recipe from this website for the mix) for the peppers/onions and the balsamic vinegar for the mushrooms. I also added some shredded red cabbage and thinly sliced radishes and a little lime juice to the wrap and skipped the lettuce and sour cream. Next time I think I might add some fresh, or maybe pickled, jalapenos. I think I must have had very large mushroom caps because I ended up slicing them while they cooked instead of afterwards.
Pretty good, the only thing I changed was that I added the portabella mushrooms back with the pepper and onions after I sliced them. This seem to give the flavors more continuity than having them separate.
I really liked it, my husband was so-so about it, so I've settled on a 4. The texture is wonderful, I just think it needs more flavor. I used recipe#28011 for the seasoning so next time might try for something with more kick. I ommited the lettuce leaves because I was out and we don't like them in our fajitas. With a kicky seasoning and some more balsamic this would be a great easy vegetarian dinner. Thanks Sharon!
