Triple ‘purple’ taco 💜🟣🟪


Taco is always an easy go to dinner in our house plus every one likes it. You can make it as festive as you want. Pair it up with chips n fresh smashed guacamole and you have a Mexican fiesta treat. 

This is a purple lovers treat. The only thing missing was purple tortilla wraps, we could not find them 😕 we made up for the absence with purple tortilla chips. 

So what are the 3 layers – 

☝️ Raw Jackfruit stir-fried in Harissa paste 

✌️ Caramelized Red Onions 

🤟 Purple cabbage salad tossed with Jalapeño and cilantro 

This whole dinner comes together in under 30 minutes. While the red onions are caramelizing in the oven, the jackfruit can be stir-fried on the stove. Toss freshly sliced red cabbage with some jalapeños and cilantro and a squeeze of lemon juice.
