You know, one of the very few drawbacks of solar cooking is that you have to cook before 3:30 most days. After that the sun just isn’t direct enough to cook anything. I know it sounds simple, but I can’t tell you how many nights I want to make cookies only to remember that I can’t cook late.
Yesterday I was going to make a pasta dish. But then nap time extended till I finally fell asleep and when I woke up at 3:30, it was too late to even cook the noodles.
So, I flipped some menu items around and made the portobello fajita recipe from the Engine 2 book. It took maybe 15 minutes, and if I had to do it again with a working solar cooker, I would have served it with a side of rice. It was so good, I feel the need to share the recipe.
Portobello Mushroom Fajitas
2 portobello mushrooms, cut into thick strips
1/2 onion, cut in thin strips
1 bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2 jalapeño, minced
Begin by cooking the mushroom in a large skillet with water. After about 3 minutes, add in the onion. About 2 minutes later add in the peppers. Cook till the onions soften.
Serve on corn tortillas with sides of salsa, refried beans, and guacamole. Serves about 3 people.
My kids and husband adored this. I tried to get a picture, but they ate so fast that everything was gone. Seriously, everything. Here is all I could get:
The food was excellent! Follow the rest of my adventures at: http://solarcookingchallenge.wordpress.com
