Curried Jackfruit with Kale

Begin my making the cashew cream. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add 1 1/2 cups of whole cashews. Remove from the heat and allow the cashews to soak for 1 hour. After they’ve softened, drain and rinse them before adding to a high speed blender with 1 1/4 cups of fresh water. Blend until smooth and creamy.

In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add diced onion. Sauté for about 4-5 minutes until the onions are soft and translucent. To the pot add cashew cream, 1 1/2 cups of vegetable broth, curry powder, garam masala, a cinnamon stick, ginger. Stir to combine adding more vegetable broth to thin if needed. Reduce the heat and add the drained and rinsed jackfruit. Shred the jackfruit to resemble chicken and add chopped kale. Stir to combine and allow the kale to wilt for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and prepare the pan-roasted potatoes.

Pan-Roasted Potatoes

Prepare the pan-roasted potatoes while the curry sauce is simmering. Slice the washed potatoes into about 1/4 thick rounds. In a large cast iron skillet heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot add the sliced potatoes and cook for about 5 minutes. Do not stir the potatoes and allow them to crisp up. Flip them over and cover, cooking for an additional 5 minutes. You may have to cook the potatoes in batches to prevent over-crowding of the pan.

To serve, place the curry on top of pan-roasted potatoes, top with cilantro or parsley, and a side of vegan naan. Let me know what you guys think of this incredibly simple and delicious meal. Enjoy friends!
