Ingredients for the Pulled BBQ Jackfruit

  • 20 oz canned unripe jackfruit in brine (drained weight: 10 oz / 280 g)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup BBQ Sauce

Ingredients for the Wrap


  • Prepare the tortillas and the garlic sunflower seed dressing.
  • Drain and rinse the jackfruit, remove the core of the jackfruit (harder triangular piece) for a better texture, and add the jackfruit to the pan. Pan-fry it for about 4 minutes, add the salt and spices and add the water, tomato paste, give it a good mix and let it simmer with the lid off until the water has been absorbed (about 15 minutes).
  • Use two forks to shred the jackfruits and to create this typical "pulled"-look!
  • Pour over the bbq sauce, give it a good mix, add additional spices to taste. Let it cook for another minute.
  • Then start assembling your Pulled Jackfruit wrap: Tortilla, lamb's lettuce, pulled jackfruit, tomato slices and drizzle it with the garlic sunflower seed dressing. Enjoy!
