  • 18.3oz ground beef mince
  • 1teaspoon garlic oil
  • 1teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 5.2oz cherry tomatoes– equivalent to 1 cup – halved
  • 1 carrot– grated
  • 1 onion– sliced finely
  • 1Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2cup avocado dressing
  • 6leaves baby cos (romaine) lettuce– removed whole leaves from the base of the lettuce and wash
  • 1teaspoon olive oil
  1. Prepare all the ingredients and separate into serving bowls ready for eating.
  2. Heat a fry pan over high heat, add olive oil, then onion, and allow to brown off for a couple of minutes.
  3. Turn the heat down, add the balsamic vinegar and allow to cook for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Each time you stir it, if it seems too dry, add 1 tablespoon of water to make sure the onions stay moist and caramelize well. If they dry out they will burn instead of caramelize.
  4. Heat another pan over high heat, add the garlic oil and ground beef. Use your spatula to break up the beef and allow to cook for a couple of minutes. Stir it occasionally and keep breaking it up as you do so. You want smaller pieces of ground beef, not big chunky pieces.
  5. After a couple of minutes of cooking, add the cumin and chili to the pan and continue to cook for a further few minutes until cooked.
  6. Your onions and beef should be ready about the same time, so serve each into separate bowls and you are now ready to serve up your fajitas.
