Beany Jackfruit Taquitos

Beany Jackfruit Taquitos

Taquitos (or flautas) are essentially rolled corn-tortilla tacos that are fried. While taquitos are traditionally filled with beef or chicken, these vegan jackfruit taquitos use a plant-based ingredient that gets stringy and meaty when cooked. The addition of beans to the jackfruit boosts protein content and satiety. Look for canned water-packed jackfruit in Asian markets or online. If you don’t have an air fryer, see the oven-baked option after the recipe. Recipe and photos from The Vegan Air Fryer: The Healthier Way to Enjoy Deep-Fried Flavors © 2017 by JL Fields.

Serve as an entrée, surrounded by steamed vegetables and a simple grain side dish. Excerpted from Vegan Pressure Cooking by J.L. Fields @2015, Fair Winds Press. Reprinted by permission. more→

What keeps most people from making beans from scratch is one thing: time. The pressure cooker removes that obstacle. more→
