spicy pulled jackfruit and guacamole tacos (nacho style)

2017-10-30

Okay, this one may come as a surprise, as i tend to make a lot of sweet stuff and post it here – it’s just more fun to decorate, and i actually like sweet stuff more than savory stuff (not all of the time though; this post is proof that i think savory stuff can also be amaaazing as hell!)

I hope you’ll have fun with this one, cause i definitely did. I wanted to make tacos, cause i still had some (store bought) hard taco shells left, but as i opened thee package, i discovered that most of them were broken. So i did the only thing i could think of: i broke them all and treated them like nachos, put them on a plate and built a tower of delicious food on top. And this was the result: broken taco shells topped with spicy pulled jackfruit, guacamole, vegan yogurt and papaya. It was epic. The jackfruit was very spicy and perfect with the mildness of the avocado (i only added lime juice). And because i don’t want you to miss out on anything, here’s the recipe for you.

spicy pulled jackfruit and guacamole tacos (nacho style)

for the pulled jackfruit:

  • 1 can young green jackfruit in brine
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 tsp red curry paste
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp coconut cream (or any plant based creamer like almond, rice or soy)

for the guacamole:

  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice

to decorate/ toppings:

  • papaya pieces 
  • vegan yogurt
  • black sesame seeds
  • fresh basil

For the pulled jackfruit, first chop the onion and cook it in a pan with the coconut oil on medium heat. In the meantime, cut off the hard middle parts of the jackfruit. When the onion has become transparent, add the jackfruit pieces and maybe add some more coconut oil or water. You can also add the herbs and spices now. Keep stirring until everything is combined, and cook it on medium heat for about 20mins. Stir occasionally. At the end, add the cream and stir again.

While you’re waiting for the jackfruit in the pan, you can make the guacamole. Just mash the avocado with the lime juice in a bowl and set in the fridge until the jackfruit is ready.

Once all is ready to be served, put broken taco shells, vegan nachos or whatever you want on a plate, spoon the pulled jackfruit on top and then the guacamole. Add some yogurt (trust me, you want that). Add whichever toppings you like (the papaya was amazing with the rest!) And you’re ready to go 😉

Happy Monday!
