Jackfruit is a tropical Asian fruit that when picked while unripe or 'green' can be used as a meat substitute. It makes delicious ‘pulled pork’!
Spicy BBQ Jackfruit Quesadilla
2 can of Natures Charm jackfruit in brine (JACKG)
2 tablespoons of olive oil (OLIOE)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika (PAPSMKD)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (OREGA)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (CUMGPP)
1 pinch of chilli flakes (CHIFLP)
3/4 cup of BBQ sauce (BBQSFM2)
1/2 cup of water
12 ten inch tortillas (TORTF10)
2 cups of grated cheese (CHEEVS)
100 grams of jalapenos (JALS)
200 grams Portobello mushrooms, sliced
1 red capsicum, finely sliced
1 red onion, finely sliced
1/2 teaspoon of salt (SALTI1)
1 cup of guacamole (GUAC)
Prepare the jackfruit by draining, removing the core and shredding a little. You can do this with your hands – it shreds quite easily. Once shredded give the jackfruit a thorough rinse and drain well.
Add the jackfruit and all of the spices to a frying pan with the oil and cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat.
Add the BBQ sauce and water and cook for a further 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, sauté the mushrooms, capsicums, onions in a frying pan with a little oil. Cook for 5 - 7 minutes or until softened.
Once the jackfruit is done it’s time to assemble your quesadillas.
Lay out 6 tortillas and place a large spoonful of jackfruit on each. Spread the jackfruit out then repeat with the vegetables.
Evenly sprinkle over the cheese and jalapenos to your liking, then place the remaining tortillas on top.
Cook each quesadilla in sandwich press for about two minutes, or until golden and the cheese has melted.
Serve with fresh coriander a guacamole. Best eaten straight away.
