Jackfruit tacos

by Faye MacGregor on March 16, 2022


Ingredients for the Jackfruit

1 can Ceres Organics jackfruit, drained and rinsed

1 cup Ceres Organics canned chopped tomatoes

2 tsp smoked paprika

Salt and pepper to season

Ingredients for the salsa

1 spring onion, finely sliced

½ cup Ceres Organics pineapple

½ All Good Banana, finely diced

Juice of ½ a lime

1 TBS Ceres Organics coconut cream

Salt and pepper to season

Ingredients for the jalapeno cream

½ an avocado

2 TBS organic jalapenos

½ tsp Ceres Organics onion powder

½ tsp Ceres Organics garlic powder

¼ cup Ceres Organics coconut cream

6 tortillas, or tacos. You could also use collard leaves to be 100% organic.


Preheat your oven to 180 deg C.

Prepare the jackfruit by marinating in a bowl with all the ingredients.

Place on a lined, roasting oven tray and place in the oven for 30 mins.

Meanwhile, prepare the jalapeño cream by placing all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and whiz until silky smooth. If you are having young kids join you, perhaps leave the jalapeño out and stir through at the end for the adults.

Place the cream in the fridge to set slightly.

Now to prepare the salsa.

Heat a little coconut oil in a pan and place the pineapple pieces in. On a high heat, cook and turn the pieces until they are nicely browned. Place on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.

Place the remaining salsa ingredients in a bowl, and lastly, chop the pineapple into cubes and stir through.

Once the jackfruit has cooked, grab two forks and “pull apart” the fruit to resemble a pulled pork or chicken scenario.

Prepare your tacos, tortillas, or collard leaves, depending on which you are using. Layer with the jackfruit first, followed by the banana salsa, and top with the jalapeño cream.
