  1. Melt the coconut oil in a very large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onions and celery and fry for 10 minutes, or until soft. Mix in the bell peppers, garlic and spices and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the jackfruit, chopped tomatoes and tomato purée. Simmer for a few minutes, until thickened, you may wish to add water (fill up the empty chopped tomato tin with water for a good amount of water) if you like your chilli a little thinner.
  3. Meanwhile, add your balsamic vinegar and coconut sugar into the sauce.
  4. Add the beans and the grated raw cacao paste and season well.
  5. Put a lid on the saucepan and slowly simmer the chilli on a low heat for 30–40 minutes.
  6. Serve right away with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and freshly grated raw cacao paste on top and extra spices.
