BBQ Jackfruit

  7. Use two forks to shred the jackfruit in the pan.

Assembling

  1. Heat your tortillas via your preferred method. You can heat them in a frying pan, or stack them up, cover them in foil and bake them in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for around 15 minutes until heated through. Our latest preferred method is to heat them in our panini press.
  2. Add shredded lettuce followed by BBQ jackfruit, sliced avocado, red onion, a drizzle of vegan sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro.
  3. Serve with fresh lime wedges on the side.
