Prep Time 45 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 4 people


  • 2 20 oz tins jackfruit, drained and rinsed
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 2 cups frozen mixed peppers
  • 2 15 oz cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups quinoa


  • In a large saucepan, add the jackfruit and one cup of water. Cook on medium-high heat until soft. In a separate medium saucepan, add the onion and peppers. Saute with a little bit of water on medium-high heat until soft and slightly browned.
  • In a medium pot, add the quinoa with four cups of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to low-medium heat. Once the quinoa is done, place in a separate bowl and use the same saucepan to cook the beans.
  • Once the jackfruit has softened, use a fork to mash/ shred the large chunks. Once shredded, add the taco seasoning and barbecue sauce and allow to marinate on low heat for five minutes.
  • Combine all the ingredients into a bowl. Optional: top with Trader Joe's green goddess dressing.
