  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Slice jackfruit into long triangles. Squeeze out excess moisture over a colander.
  2. Mix lemon juice, nutritional yeast, vegetable oil, garlic, sesame oil, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt, cumin, paprika, allspice, turmeric, cinnamon, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Add jackfruit; mix and knead thoroughly to coat with lemon juice mixture.
  3. Melt vegan margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook jackfruit in batches until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • The seasoned jackfruit is ready to cook immediately, but flavors will mingle more if you cover it and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
  • Avoid overcooking jackfruit; it becomes mealy and mushy, losing the texture for which it is valued.

I’ll make it again, but put a little less lemon juice. Other than that, very tasty.
