Morning! Today I’m bringing back an F&F series that disappeared for a bit.

Reader Recipes

In Reader Recipes, I highlight Fitness & Feta readers who want to share their favorite recipes with all of you. This is also a great way for me to get new ideas for fun eats.

Say hello to Sarah and her cabbage quinoa fajitas!

I came up with this recipe a few years back and whip it out anytime I’m craving some Mexican food. It’s simple and doesn’t take too much effort which is why I love it. Simple and delicious? Count me in! I generally include meat in my recipes, but these babies are good enough vegetarian style.

cabbage fajitas


  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
  • 4-6 large cabbage leaves
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked per
  • 1/2 lime
  • salsa
  • 2 tablespoons guacamole or 1/2 avocado (optional)


  1. Begin by cooking the quinoa and slicing the pepper and onion.
  2. Spray a large pan with non-stick cooking spray, and sauté peppers and onion. Once cooked turn heat to low.
  3. Once quinoa is cooked, add it to the peppers and onions. Season with salt, pepper, and the juice of 1/2 lime.
  4. Fill cabbage leaves with the quinoa veggie mixture.
  5. Top with salsa and guacamole and avocado (optional).
  6. Enjoy (and maybe have a homemade margarita on the side!).
