If you're looking for a recipe that is as quick as it is delicious, then look no further. The jackfruit is the only thing you need to cook in this and once you've done that, it's just a case of loading each taco up with as many toppings as your heart desires. Perfect for a taco tuesday...or any other day of the week.


Drain the jackfruit and squeeze out as much moisture as possible, then pull each piece intro smaller shreds using your hands, discarding the tougher cores and seeds from the centre of each piece.

Add all the seasonings to the jackfruit and toss to make sure it's all thoroughly coated. Heat a medium large frying pan over a medium heat and add a splash of oil. Once hot, add the seasoned jackfruit and cook most of the moisture has evaporated and the jackfruit starts to caramelise and turn golden brown.

Heat a clean frying pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add a small handful of vegan cheese and let it melt. Once melted, place a soft taco shell on top and press into the cheese. Once a golden brown crust of cheese has formed, use a spatular to remove the cheesy taco from the pan. Repeat with all your tacos.

Load the cheesy tacos with the pulled jackfruit, some avocado slices, a sprinkle of diced red onion, a drizzle of spicy vegan mayo and some fresh coriander. Enjoy!
