  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (a pinch more to taste if preferred)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 cups filtered water (alkaline if possible)
  • 1/8 teaspoon monk fruit sweetener (or ½ tsp raw coconut sugar)

For the Caribbean black beans:

  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans (preferred soaked from dry and cooked stovetop)
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt or to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh orange juice (or lime juice for more tartness)
  • 1/4 cup filtered water (alkaline if possible)

Other ingredients:

  • Fresh mango (diced)
  • Tortilla wraps (Poon recommends wraps made with cassava flour)
  • Pickled veggies, fresh cilantro, cucumber, chopped leafy greens, citrus wedges for squeezing on top (all to taste)


Jackfruit: If using packaged jackfruit, drain, and wash well. Shred or thinly slice jackfruit. Place large pan or skillet with 1 teaspoon of avocado oil over medium heat. Heat the oil, then add shredded jackfruit and all dry spices. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until spices become aromatic. Add lime juice, water, and monk fruit or coconut sugar. Partially cover the skillet and cook until mixture has dried (about 28 minutes), stirring occasionally. Once the mixture is dry, reduce heat to medium and add salt and pepper to taste. Add remaining avocado oil and cook until the jackfruit edges are golden brown.

Caribbean black beans: Add avocado oil, onions, and garlic to a medium pan over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent and garlic is aromatic. Add black beans, spices, water, and orange (or lime juice). Simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Warm a tortilla or wrap on a pan, then layer the wraps in this order: black beans, cilantro, chopped greens, jerk jackfruit, cucumber, mango, pickled veggies, lemon or lime juice, salt, and pepper. Fold the wrap into a burrito and serve.
