Stuffed Breadfruit

Stuffed Breadfruit

450g (1 lb) ground beef
30ml (2 tbsp) fresh thyme
60ml (1/4 cup) chopped chive
2 cloves garlic, minced
30ml (2 tbsp) oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 pimento peppers, seeded and chopped
1 sweet pepper, seeded and chopped
1 carrot, grated
125ml (1/2 cup) tomato sauce
salt and black pepper to taste
1 breadfruit

Combine beef with thyme, chive and garlic. Heat oil in a frying pan and add onion, peppers and carrot and cook until tender. Cool for about 5 minutes and add tomato sauce.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer for another 10 - 15 minutes, adding a little water if needed to prevent sticking.

Preheat oven to 425F. Slice top off breadfruit and reserve. Scoop out heart of breadfruit and stuff with meat mixture. Replace top and roast breadfruit for 30 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350F, and bake for another 30-40 minutes or until breadfruit is tender. Alternatively, roast over hot coals on barbecue pit until breadfruit skin becomes charred and breadfruit is cooked. Serves 4-6
