Notes

*When draining, really press as much water out of the Jackfruit as you can before adding to bowl. This will really help with the final desired texture.  You may press excess water out with your clean hands by picking up fistfuls and squeezing while still in the colander...it's will shred the Jackfruit at the same time.  Another option is to layout a clean, thin, lint-free towel, place drained Jackfruit in the center, gather up the sides of the towel, then squeeze the water out of the Jackfruit through the towel.

Equipment

  • ramekins, loaf pan or muffin pan with parchment muffin cups

Ingredients
  

  • 2/3 cup garbanzo flour or chickpea flour
  • 1 cup cool water
  • 2 tsp nooch aka. nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder or minced dried onion flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 handful chopped veggies such as broccoli slaw, diced
  • 2 Tbsp vegan cheesie sauce or cheese shreds of choice

Instructions
 

  • Set oven to 400 degrees. Grease 2 ramekins, a mini loaf pan or use muffin cups. I prefer to use parchment muffin cups with zero oil. Set aside
  • In a small bowl whisk together garbanzo flour, nooch, baking powder, onion powder and salt
  • Whisk in the cool water until well combined. Add chopped veggies & vegan sausage, etc. if using
  • Carefully scoop mixture into muffin cups or baking pan
  • Bake at 400 for 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned on top

Notes

These amaze me in that they go into the oven so liquid-y and yet come out dense, yet soft and so nicely flavored. A dollop of cheesie sauce and vegan sausage really elevates these to favorites of mine.
