You know whats amazing, loads of flavor with not much effort. These wraps filled with spiced jackfruit and beans have a load of flavor and can be served up any which way. Make just the Jamaican jerk jackfruit and fill up sandwiches or a grilled quesadilla with greens or onions and vegan cheddar (I use daiya cheddar slices), make the beans and some rice and fill up a bowl and top with chopped mango or other fruit. Or wrap everything up for all the flavors together.
The Jackfruit is amply spiced with homemade Jamaican jerk seasoning. The Caribbean black beans are simple beans with onion garlic and some orange juice. Use any crunchy veggies, greens and sweet fruits and fill up tacos or wraps. Try Jackfruit also in my Easy Jackfruit Curry or Chipotle Garlic Jackfruit Tacos. I use young green jackfruit. Young Jackfruit is available in canned, fresh or frozen form in Indian or Asian Stores. It is available canned online on stores like amazon.com. Be sure to get young jackfruit in water or brine. Ripe jackfruit is too sweet and is generally used as dessert or served directly as fruit. Add it to your chia pudding or oatmeal if you get the ripe jackfruit accidentally.
