In a large stock pot, heat olive oil. Add garlic and onions and stir for 1-2 minutes. Then add the bell pepper, jalapeno, carrots and celery. Stir for 1-2 minutes. Add 1 cup broth and 2 cups water. Then add the spices. Stir together. Cover the pot and cook on medium for 10 minutes.


Turn the heat to low. Add the miso and 1 cup of broth. Stir until miso paste is incorporated in the sauce. Now add the raw jackfruit and final cup of vegetable broth. Stir together. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.


After 20 minutes, remove the lid and stir the mixture. At this point, taste the sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Note: For a slightly creamier sauce stir in 2 tbsp of plant butter. (optional)
