This one was quick and easy since jackfruit comes in the can and doesn’t really need to be cooked. I just pulled apart the jackfruit and fried it a little in some sweet and tangy BBQ sauce with a handful of smashed black beans. To boost the flavour even more I added some onions, garlic and mushrooms to the frying pan. Onions and garlic are not only great for the immune system but are also powerful anti-inflammatories, lowering inflammation in your gut and throughout your body.
DID YOU KNOW: Mushrooms relax your arteries lowering your blood pressure!
We love our homemade guacamole! Avocado is rich in oleic acid – a healthy fat – and we try to consume it as much as possible — our guac is just squished avocado with some S&P, a splash of pickle juice and scoop of nutritional yeast — For the rice I always cook it in broth and often will add some cumin or coriander for added flavour. If you add the spices to the water then the rice (or any grain you cook) takes on the flavours as it’s cooking and soaking it all in.
We topped it all off with a little salsa and some fresh cilantro — cilantro is great at soaking up and naturally removing any extra heavy metals from our body.
