  • 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.

  • Melt vegan margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook jackfruit in batches until heated through, about 5 minutes.

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.
