  2. Add the red wine to the pan and simmer (uncovereuntil it reduces by half.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and oregano. Bring back to a low simmer and cook the sauce for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool slightly before blending into a purée. Season to taste.

To make the jackfruit:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
  2. In a large pan, fry the onion in the oil over a medium heat until softened. Add the jackfruit, oregano and spices and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in the vinegar and agave syrup.
  3. Transfer the jackfruit mixture onto a baking tray. Cover with foil and cook in the oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and cook for a further 5 minutes. Season to taste.

For the winter vegetables:

  1. Boil the vegetables in salted water for 5-10 minutes until they start to soften. Drain, then fry in the olive oil for 5 minutes, while crushing. Season to taste.

To make the vegetable crisps:

  1. Heat the oil to 160°C in a large, wide, sturdy pan (so it is no more than half full).Use a potato peeler to create strips from the carrot and parsnip and fry until golden. Drain on kitchen towel and leave to crisp up.

For the garnish:

  1. Bring a small saucepan of salted water to the boil. Remove the leaves from the Brussels sprouts and blanch them in the water for 2 minutes. Pat them dry on kitchen towel and set aside.

To assemble the final dish:

  1. Place the crushed winter vegetables in the centre of the plate, place the jackfruit on top and finish with Brussels sprout leaves and vegetable crisps. Pour the sauce around the outside.
