Hello friends! It’s time for another meatless Monday! And this is a good one if I may say so myself.
I know some people are still in doubt about jackfruit but maybe this chili will change your mind!
You can use leftovers as a filling for wraps, tacos, or just on its own!
And it will like most chilis, stews etc taste almost better the next day. Have a great start into the new week!
- 3 (or more) potatoes, I used sweet and baking potatoes
- 1 can jackfruit in brine
- 1 medium red onion
- 5 garlic cloves
- 2 jalapeños (seeded for less heat)
- 1 cup black beans (cooked and rinsed)
- 1/2 cup corn
- 2 cups veggie broth
- 1/2 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 1-2 tbsp vegan BBQ sauce
- 1 tbsp coconut aminos or 1/2 tbsp tamari sauce
- 1.5 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp chili powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh lime juice
- Dash of vegan Worcestershire sauce
1- Preheat oven to 400 F/200 C.
2- Scrub potatoes and bake them for about 1 hour (depending on size) until fork tender.
3- Drain jackfruit and break it up with your hands or a fork until it resembles a shredded texture, especially the tough seedy parts!
4- Finely dice onion and jalapeños and mince garlic.
5- Heat up oil in a large sauté pan and fry onions until browned on low to medium heat. Add jackfruit, garlic and jalapeños and keep sautéing until all excess liquid is gone and jackfruit is starting to brown.
Add tomato paste, all sauces and spices and and stir for another minute.
6- Add veggie broth and bring chili to a boil.
7- Let simmer until all liquid is gone and add corn and black beans towards the end. Adjust salt and pepper to taste squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice over it.
8 – For serving, I cut my baked potatoes in half and scraped the flesh with a fork a bit before filling them with chili and a bit of cashew and cashew cilantro lime cream.
