This recipe features in one of my Sunday Cookalongs.....where I cook from my kitchen and you cook from yours via Facebook Live. You can find the video here. Join me for a cookalong session via my FB page www.facebook.com/vcdtv.

8 large portobello mushrooms

1/4c tamari or soya sauce

1/4c water

1 tin of green jackfruit

6T passata

1/4c water

1T tamari

1T rice syrup

1/4t cayenne pepper

1/2t smoked paprika

1/2t ground cumin

1/4t onion salt

1/4t garlic salt

A pinch of pepper

Preheat your oven to 220c

In a large bowl mix the water and 1/4c tamari, add the mushrooms and mix well ensuring they are covered in the sauce

Put the mushrooms and the sauce onto a baking tray and into the oven

Drain and wash the jackfruit, separate the pieces with your hands

Put the passata, water, tamari, syrup, spices and pepper into a saucepan

Add the jackfruit, mix well and heat until it bubbles. Simmer until the jackfruit is soft. (Green jackfruit that is soaked in brine in the tin will be mush softer than green jackfruit soaked in water in the tin.......so if you have the latter you will need to simmer it for longer, the former literally just needs warming through)

Take one portobello, load it up with the jackfruit and top with another mushroom
