Suitable for



  1. Heat the pan and add the oil allowing to smoke a little. Add the thyme, marjoram, bay leaves, cloves, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, chilli flakes, garlic and onion and roast in the pan. A little colour is good!
  2. Now add the jackfruit and red pepper and cook allowing the spices to coat the ingredients and the jackfruit to catch on the edges.
  3. Now add the diced tomatoes, Bisto Vegetable Stock, and tomato puree.
  4. Bring this to a boil and add the Vegan Bisto gravy granules. Allow to cook for 15-20 minutes. We want the stew to cook out and make the jackfruit soft.
  5. To serve, add your tortilla chips to a dish, top with the jackfruit birria and finish with diced avocado, chopped coriander and optional fresh lime!
Hints & Tips: For an extra kick add some sliced red chillies. Great served with rice as well as tortilla chips.
