Family Story

My family and I have always been explorative in our cooking. We enjoy different cuisines and different styles of eating. We stumbled upon BBQ jackfruit tacos as a vegan alternative to the standard pulled pork BBQ tacos. Surprisingly enough, the BBQ jackfruit tacos were just as good (if not better) than the real deal in terms of both flavor and texture. Now, my family and I enjoy making this dish when we want plant-based BBQ!


1 Step

Begin by draining the canned jackfruit.

2 Step

Shred the jackfruit using a food processor. Pulse only a few times. You want a "shredded meat" texture. Don't over pulse or it will be mushy.

3 Step

Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion. Saute until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes.

4 Step

Add the tomato paste to the pan and saute for about a minute.

5 Step

Add the shredded jackfruit to the pan. Then, add all of the spices and mix to combine.

6 Step

Drain and rinse the black beans and add to the pan.

7 Step

Pour the vegetable broth. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer. Then, reduce heat to low. Cook until the liquid has reduced.

8 Step

Prepare the toppings (avocados, tomatoes, lettuce). Warm the taco shells using either a toaster oven or skillet.

9 Step

To serve, scoop some of the jackfruit mixture into the taco shells, add your preferred toppings, and drizzle some BBQ sauce on top.
