Looks like meat, right!?! Surprise, it's jackfruit! Amazonia Tender Jack to be precise – once again proving that you don't need meat to make your favourite dishes. The team at Bake eat Easy has used our Original flavour, but there's also the our pre-marinated flavours – Smokey BBQ, Curry and Teriyaki – to choose from!
The largest tree-born fruit in the world, jackfruit is low in calories and a great source of Vitamin C, potassium and good-for-you fibre – meaning you'll be satiated for longer. Bake eat Easy have chosen to make their quesadillas from scratch – but store-bought will do just fine if you're after a quick and easy meal.
You can add as many fillings as you like, but melty cheese is a must! If you give this recipe a go, remember to tag us (@amazoniaco) on Instagram – we love seeing your creations!
Cheesy Jackfruit Quesadillas
Lunch, Dinner, Tender Jack
75g all purpose flour
75g self-rising flour
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp oil
60ml warm water
1 pack Amazonia Tender Jack Original
100g vegan shredded cheese
Mix the two flours with the salt.
Make a hole in the middle and add the tablespoons of oil and the warm water little by little! Mix everything.
Knead for about 5 minutes on the counter and let the taco dough rest for 20 minutes.
Make 4 small rolls a little bigger than a walnut, and roll them out with the rolling pin.
Place a non-stick pan over medium heat.
Empty contents of pouch into pan.
Cook for 5-10 minutes or until contents are heated through.
Break or shred Jackfruit up while in pan then set aside.
Heat a medium skillet over medium heat.
Warm your tortilla for about 30 seconds, flipping halfway.
Sprinkle one-half of the tortilla with cheese and jackfruit and fold over the empty side of the tortilla to enclose the fillings then flip it with a spatula and let the quesadilla cook until golden and crispy on the bottom. Then flip it and cook until the second side is golden and crispy.
Immediately remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board.
Let it cool for a minute to give the cheese time to set, then use a chef’s knife to slice it into 2 pieces and serve inmediately.
Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas.
