What You'll Need
How to Make It
TO PREPARE THE FILLING
1 Place the jackfruit in a saucepan and add enough water to cover. Boil for 15 minutes.
2 Drain the jackfruit, rinse with cool water, and shred the jackfruit completely with your hands.
3 Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the jackfruit, garlic powder, turmeric, and cumin. Add a little water or vegetable broth, as needed, to prevent the ingredients from sticking, and sauté for 5 minutes. When finished, remove from heat.
4 Meanwhile, combine the onion and cilantro in a bowl.
5 In a separate container, add the plant-based mayonnaise, white vinegar, and avocado.
6 Mash the avocado with a fork until it becomes pureed and incorporated well with the mayonnaise.
7 Combine the three elements of the filling: the onion and chopped cilantro mixture, the mashed avocado mixture, and the sautéed jackfruit. Mix well.
TO PREPARE THE AREPAS
1 Heat the arepas and cut them lengthwise.
2 Fill the arepas with the prepared jackfruit mixture and add sprouts if you like.
