One Pot Jackfruit Quinoa Pilaf is my latest favorite for lunch and or dinner. It’s a scrumptious satisfying meal with a medley of spices and herbs. It’s a complete desirable dish for everyone’s taste buds. I am sure once you make it you are going to make it over and over and over again. It is definitely hard to get over this nutritious and flavorful dish.
I have been thinking to come up with a one pot recipe to not only reduce the cooking time but also to reduce the washing time. I love to cook but I hate to do dishes or clean up afterwards. One pot meals are absolutely favorable when I just don’t want to clean up too much mess in the kitchen. Therefore, One Pot Jackfruit Quinoa Pilaf is definitely my favorite meal for those tiring and busy weeknights.
For this, I used little oil (however you may skip the oil part). Feel free to use vegetable broth or just start with boiling water and add garlic, ginger and rest of the ingredients directly in the water. If you use vegetable broth skip the garlic and ginger part. Once the water starts to cook add all the mentioned spices. Then, toss in the rinsed quinoa. Afterwards add young green jackfruit and cook covered until water is absorbed and jackfruit is tender. Now comes the fun part. With the help of two forks pull apart jackfruit and fluff quinoa. Lastly, toss the pilaf once and garnish with fresh cilantro. Enjoy it warm with a side onion salad and or raita.
Within 30 minutes wholesome and healthy dinner is ready. I enjoyed the leftover for my lunch the next day. I also packed some in a lunch box for Rohit the following day. It’s a spicy dish so when cooking for children please adjust the spice level according to taste. This satisfying meal has topped my dinner menu. The best part of this is that I just have to clean one pot and a spatula. No mess, no hassel and not too much burning near the stove. This One Pot Jackfruit Quinoa is good for all seasons. In summer it solves the problem of quick cooking. In winter it satisfies the craving for spicy and hot food. Also, we don’t have to worry about seasonal food all the time in this recipe.
