These Jerk Jackfruit wraps make a perfect lunch! Make the individual elements in advance and just construct your wrap each day. Hope you love it!
- 1 large sweet potato - peeled and cut into wedges
- 400g tin of young jackfruit in water - drained and rinsed
- 2-3 teaspoons of jerk seasoning
- 400g tin of kidney beans
- 1 little gem lettuce - roughly chopped
- 3 tablespoons of vegan mayo
- Juice of 1 lime
- 6 roti (paratha roti also work)
- Salt & pepper
- Olive oil
- Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 5/190c.
- Toss the sweet potato wedges in a good glug of olive oil with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
- Put the wedges on a baking tray and chuck in the oven for 15-20 minutes - turn them halfway through.
- While the wedges are in the oven, in a bowl toss the jackfruit in 2 tsp of jerk seasoning.
- Heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan to a low-medium heat.
- Add the jackfruit to the pan and cook for around 5 minutes, giving it the occasional stir.
- Once the 5 minutes is up, grab a couple of forks and gently pull apart the jackfruit until it's shredded. If it's a bit tough still, give it a couple more minutes to soften up before you pull it apart.
- Add the kidney beans to the jackfruit and gently heat for a couple of minutes while stirring.
- Give it a quick taste and add more jerk seasoning or salt if needed.
- In a bowl mix the mayo with the juice of half the lime and a good helping of black pepper - give it a taste and add more lime juice if necessary. It should be perfectly zesty and fiery.
- When everything is ready, you can start putting the wraps together - add a good dollop of mayo, a couple of sweet potato wedges, 1/6 of the jackfruit mix and a handful of lettuce to each roti and wrap them up like a burrito.
Everything will last a couple of days in the fridge. We have this over a few days during the week – it’s a super easy and simple recipe for taking to work or on-the-go.
