Coleslaw & Jackfruit Quesadillas

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the jackfruit, capsicum and onion until tender, and the jackfruit is starting to fall apart. Cook for 5 minutes, then add beans and season with salt and pepper.  
  1. Sprinkle over the paprika, chilli and cumin, and continue to cook for 10 minutes. Add half a cup of water if the mix becomes too dry. 
  1. Heat another heavy based frying pan or grill plate over a low heat. Place one tortilla in the pan, and top with cheese slices or a handful of grated cheese. Spoon on some of the jackfruit mix and then top with a large handful of the Leaderbrand Classic Coleslaw. Cover with another tortilla. Fry for 1-2 minutes, until cheese begins to melt. 
  1. Flip over the tortilla sandwich carefully to toast the other side. Remove to a warm tray and repeat with the next tortillas and mix. 
  1. Cut into quarters and serve hot or warm. 

Variations: Add avocado, mashed potato, or hummus to the tortillas.
