The lunch boxes are back and I'm very happy about it. This time I made fajitas with mushrooms and a divine sauce that will make your day at the office.

Fajitas are usually made in the oven and are drier. In this recipe I also added an easy, quick sauce to them so that they are not too dry and I did not put them in tortillas but accompanied them with rice.

To make mushroom fajitas you will need: peppers of all colors, mushrooms, onion and nothing else.

As for the sauce, you can prepare it in 2-3 minutes. You will need: soy sauce, sesame oil, vegetable stock, peanut butter, rice vinegar, honey or maple syrup, some ginger, garlic, cornstarch and some red pepper.
