Jackfruit fajitas
Recipe photograph by Stuart West
Give fajita night a vegan spin with this speedy family-friendly dinner. Jackfruit has a distinctly meaty texture, similar to pulled pork, and is great at taking on the flavour of spices or sauces (it has quite a neutral flavour on its own). It’s sold in tins so it’s worth stocking up for quick midweek meals

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 red peppers, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 x 400g tin jackfruit in water, drained
  • 1 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 250g cherry tomatoes
  • ½ x 30g pack coriander, chopped
  • zest and juice ½ lime, plus wedges to serve
  • 1 x 400g tin black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 8 medium soft tortilla wraps - use gluten-free wraps, if required
  • 250g dairy-free plain yogurt

Step by step

  1. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and fry the peppers and red onion over a fairly high heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, place the jackfruit in the centre of a clean tea towel, pick up the corners and firmly squeeze and wring out any excess liquid over the sink.
  3. Stir the jackfruit and fajita seasoning through the veg, season and fry over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile to make a salsa, quarter the cherry tomatoes and mix with the coriander, lime zest and juice. Season to taste.
  5. Add the black beans to the jackfruit mixture and heat through for a final 2 minutes.
  6. Warm the tortillas according to pack instructions and serve with the fajita jackfruit mixture, tomato salsa and yogurt to assemble as you eat, with lime wedges on the side.
