Prepare the jackfruit: Preheat the oven at 400 F. Drain and rinse the jackfruit* pieces. Cut the core of the jackfruit pieces and discard. The core is dense and not fibrous like the eatable part. Remove the seeds and shells of the jackfruit. Cut the jackfruits into about 4 cm slices.
*Jackfruit is a tropical fruit often used in vegetarian cuisine as it looks and feels like pulled chicken once it is cooked.
Prepare the vegetables: Wash and clean all produce. Cut the mushroom into ½ cm slices. Peel the carrots and potatoes. Dice the carrots into ½ cm cubes. Cut the onion and potatoes into 1 cm cubes.
Cook the onion & mushrooms: In a large pot, add the onion, mushroom and the oil (1 tbsp). Cook for about 6 minutes or until the onion is tender.
Prepare the filling: Add the carrots, potatoes, water (2 1/2 cup), salt (1 1/2 tsp), jackfruit, Chicken pot pie blend to the pot. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the green peas and combine.
Roll the pastry: On a clean and floured surface, roll out the puff pastry in a rectangle of about 9” x 13”. Repeat with the other sheet of puff pastry.
Transfer the filing in a large pyrex baking dish (9” by 13”).
Bake: Place the puff pastry on the filling*. Press down the edges of the puff pastry inside the dish. Make 1-3 scores in the middle of the puff pastry. Bake in the oven at 400 F for 25-30 minutes until the puff pastry is golden.
*A technique to place the puff pastry on the filling is: Fold the puff pastry in 4. Place the puff pastry in a corner of the pyrex baking dish and unfold to cover the filling.
