This was a great guide for my first attempt at serving fajitas. I skipped the squash, swapped the monterey-jack cheese for regular tasty, and served them with tex-mex beans, a little chopped avocado, along with the salsa and sour cream. I also did sides of mexican rice and corn on the cob, but the fajitas were very filling by themselves! A great recipe for tweaking to your own tastes.-17 Sep 2007


This is a delicious, versatile and healthy recipe that I will definitely prepare regularly. I added a portobello mushroom and some zucchini to mine. I also used a green rather than red pepper since this is what I had on hand.-01 Jan 2003


Fantastic! The only thing that takes a while is the chopping, but otherwise this is a fantastic recipie!. We like to vary the types of salsa- our current faves are Corn and Black Bean Salsa from Williams-Sonoma or mild Paul Newman Chunky Salsa. WE also like to cook it in a large saucepan so we can double the recipie and use the veggies for Breakfast Burrito the next morning- we just scramble an egg and add veggies. Yummy! All our friends ask for this recipie after we serve it to them, too!-20 Jan 2003

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing (25g)
  • 150ml water
  • 1 x 210g can or 1/2 x 400g can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed (130g)

Featured Products


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C (Fan 180°C gas mark 7).
  2. Prepare the vegetables and toss in 1 tbsp vegetable oil place in a single layer on a baking tray and cook for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and reduce to 180°C (fan 160°C gas mark 4).
  3. Mix the seasoning from the meal kit with 150ml hot water and both pouches of cooking sauce.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large pan, add the kale and cook for a few minutes until wilted. Add the kidney beans and half of the cooking sauce mixture, bring to the boil and simmer for a few minutes. Stir in the roasted vegetables.
  5. Warm the tortillas according to the pack instructions, and grease an ovenproof dish.
  6. Place a large spoonful of the vegetable mixture onto the centre of each tortilla, roll and place in the dish.
  7. Spoon over the remaining cooking sauce mixture finely and sprinkle with finely grated cheese.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden.

This recipe is great for reducing food waste &ndash try using other vegetables that you have in the fridge e.g. baby spinach, mushrooms, or leftover roasted vegetables.

Cook some extra roasted vegetables and enjoy the next day as roasted vegetable and hummus wraps.

Try with any other cheese that you have, e.g. 40g grated hard cheese or ½ pack (65g) thinly sliced reduced fat soft mozzarella.

Serve with mixed salad leaves, smashed avocado or homemade slaw made with shredded red cabbage, carrots & onion.

Since fajitas are already on the heavy side, it&rsquos nice to pair it with something light and refreshing. And what dish better fits the bill than a simple green salad?

Go for a Caesar salad topped with shrimp for a creamy and flavorful side dish. Give the shrimp a nice charred flavor by grilling it for a few minutes!

If you want something lighter, serve a bowl of chopped salad with a cilantro-lime vinaigrette. The combination of leafy greens and the vinaigrette dressing offers refreshing flavors that balance out the fiery flavors of the fajitas.

Another fantastic option is to infuse some avocados into your meal. Avocados, cucumbers, and tomatoes are a classic Mexican combo, so making a salad out of those three is a great, not to mention nutritious, idea. Mix in some red onions, lime, and cumin, and top with a creamy avocado dressing, and you&rsquove got yourself a salad to die for. The cool and refreshing salad helps tone down the heat from the fajitas.

Finally, how about some Mexican slaw? It&rsquos a colorful side dish bursting with flavors from carrots, red onions, cabbage, cilantro, and apple cider vinegar. The tangy flavor complements the cheesy fajitas oh so beautifully.

Variations for Cheesy Root Vegetable Gratin

  • Chives, green onion, sage, and rosemary or a combination of herbs make a great alternative to the fresh thyme.
  • Shredded fontina, Swiss, comté, gouda, and mild cheddar all make great cheese alternatives for gruyere.
  • Whole milk or half and half can be used in place of cream, although there will be more liquid pooled in the bottom of the gratin after it’s baked.
  • Turnips and rutabaga make great root vegetable alternatives for any of the three used in this recipe.

This Cheesy Root Vegetable Gratin is seriously not to be missed! It’s a cozy and delicious side dish to any meal. We personally love to serve it alongside this Citrus Dry Brine Turkey, our Standing Rib Roast, our Pork Belly Porchetta, and our Oven Baked Chicken Thighs.
