  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 package Upton’s Naturals Chili Lime Jackfruit
  • 1 small red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 small green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 15-oz can vegetarian refried beans or equivalent amount homemade

  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups white rice
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 4 cups vegetable or no-chicken broth

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add the onions. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until golden, then add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds more. Add the jackfruit, and pan fry for 4-5 minutes, until the edges begin to crisp up. Add the bell peppers, oregano, and chili powder. Continue cooking until the vegetables are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Warm up the refried beans in a separate saucepan.
  • To prepare the rice, heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the onions and garlic and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add the rice and stir to coat with the oil. Add the diced tomatoes, oregano, broth, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until tender, then fluff with a fork before serving.
  • To serve, plate a serving of the vegetables and jackfruit, then add rice and beans on the side. Grate vegan cheese over the beans. Serve with corn tortillas and salad.
