BBQ Jackfruit Lettuce Wraps

BBQ Jackfruit Lettuce Wraps

Let's celebrate veganuary with NikiBakes' quick and easy BBQ Jackfruit lettuce wraps. Gluten free too, everyone can get stuck in! It's a real crowd pleaser and you can delegate the veg chopping your family or dinner guests, result! Who said you must have a taco in a corn tortilla anyway?


All you need is:

Use organic/natural real food ingredients where possible)


Makes 10-12 lettuce wraps

· 1 tin of Biona Organic Jackfruit, drained and washed

· 3-4 heads of mini Romaine lettuce, separated into separate leaves

· 1 large handful of radishes, sliced finely

· 1/2 a large red cabbage, shredded finely

· 2 tablespoons of avocado mayonnaise

For the BBQ Jackfruit marinade:

- 1 teaspoon of ground coriander 

- 1.5 tablespoons of tomato purée @mrorganic

- 2 tablespoons of tamari @sanchi

- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil @mr organic

- 1 heaped teaspoon of smoked paprika powder @steenbergs

- 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar @lucybee


Step 1:

Start off by laying out your mini romaine lettuce leaves and layer up with the avocado mayonnaise, your shredded cabbage and radish. Set aside.

Step 2:

In a skillet or large pan, heat your oil and simply add in your Jackfruit, together with its marinade. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until it thickens up and is warmed through. Allow to cool before spooning the mixture on top of the lettuce leaves, bliss!

Happy Baking!
