BBQ Jackfruit Tacos with Crunchy Apple Slaw


4 Servings

30 min Prep, 30 min Cook


Contains Mustard


Jackfruit is one of nature's greatest gifts to vegans, everywhere. When cooked correctly, it somehow makes the most delicious meat substitute, that is filling, delicious, and well, meaty. My version of this glorious offering combines crunchy coleslaw, spicy BBQ sauce and tofu mayonnaise. Jackfruit is very versatile so feel free to experiment with your own sauces, spices and accompaniments, and enjoy!

Cooking Stages

  • For the BBQ sauce
    • In a large frying pan, heat oil over a medium flame for 1 minute

    • Add onion and cook for 2 minutes, then add garlic and cook for a further 3 minutes

    • Add chili, oregano, cumin, coriander and paprika, mix well, and cook for another 5 minutes

    • Add vinegar and tomato and leave to simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally

    • Once sauce is ready (it should reduce during the cooking time), remove from heat and using a handheld mixer, blitz until almost smooth. The sauce can be made in advance and placed in the refrigerator until you're ready to complete the dish

    • 10 minutes before you're ready to serve, place sauce back on the stove top and heat for 2 minutes

    • Add jackfruit and cover in sauce to soften, about 5 minutes

    • Once jackfruit is soft, use two forks to gently shred each piece, continuing to mix into the sauce

    • Continue to shred until the mixture is not longer runny and the jackfruit resembles pulled pork

  • For the mayonnaise
    • Place all ingredients in a food processor, adding seasoning to taste

    • Blitz until smooth and creamy, and set aside until ready to use (it will keep for approximately 5 days in the refrigerator)

  • For the slaw
    • Right before serving, combine all ingredients in a bowl, and add mayonnaise to taste

  • To serve
    • Take pita bread and fill with jackfruit and slaw, and eat up!
