The Honey Pot

A honey bee will search up to 5 miles for food, which is about 4.9 miles longer than I'm willing to look.

Veggie Fajitas

I think I just guessed this recipe? My notes don't say where it's from, so I think it was my own. Which probably means it's not very good. I should stress this is not even remotely 'authentic' and is the American/British idea of a fajita, which is to say it's very slightly spicy and served in a wrap.


  • 400g black beans or kidney beans, drained
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 bell peppers, diced
  • 1 courgette (zucchini), peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 4 large tortillas or 8 small ones
  • Optional toppings: Cheese, soured cream, garlic sauce


  1. If you haven't already, peel and dice the courgette, dice the onion and bell peppers, drain the beans, and crush the garlic.
  2. Add a splash of oil to a pan and fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes until it starts to change colour. Add the bell peppers and continue to fry until it's soft.
  3. Add the courgette and continue to fry for a few minutes.
  4. Add the beans, stir it up, and continue to heat for a few more minutes.
  5. Warm the tortillas in a microwave.
  6. Pour the veggie mix into a large bowl to serve.
  7. Spoon some mixture into a tortilla, top with whatever you like and nom.
