I caught up with Clare from the Bakabush zine, and she was lovely enough to share one of her recipes with us!! This recipe is super easy and amazingly tasty.

Suitable for vegans.

This recipe uses jackfruit, which I had never even heard of before this. You can get it in tins in most Asian supermarkets. It's basically a fruit that, when cooked and shredded, very closely resembles pulled pork. The recipe calls for the green unripe variety and it basically just doesn't REALLY taste of much on its own, but absorbs flavours very well and has a really good texture, so works really well with Latin-American and Caribbean seasonings.

You need:

2 large cans of green jackfruit (needs to be green as oppose to ripe)
1 red onion, chopped
1 green sweet pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 chilli pepper, minced
Large handful coriander, chopped
1 tsp liquid smoke
Dash of soy sauce
Dash of vegan Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup  tomato paste
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 cups veg stock
Black pepper
Dash of paprika
Dash of cumin
Dash of dried oregano
Dash of dried thyme
Small tortillas (to serve)
Saute onion, garlic, and sweet pepper for a couple of minutes. Drain jackfruit and roughly slice. Combine rest of ingredients and simmer until liquid has evaporated. Serve in tortillas.

Massive thanks to Clare from Bakabush!! They have released a zine full of awesome vegan recipes like this, which you can purchase from our webstore here. It specialises in Belizean and Afro-Caribbean food, and I really can't say enough about it!
