“These tacos combine some of my favourite Mexican and Vietnamese flavours. This recipe was inspired by the eggplant tacos at Leeroy’s Vietnamese restaurant in Canggu, Bali. I fell in love with them and they’re a must-try if you’re in the region! p144

Makes 6
2 teaspoons avocado oil
400 g can young jackfruit, drained and rinsed, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon finely diced red onion
2 teaspoons chipotle sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
¼ teaspoon five spice powder
6 small soft flour tortillas
75 g (1 cup) finely shredded red cabbage
1 carrot, julienned

Tamari–maple sauce
2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon sriracha chilli sauce

To serve
handful of coriander leaves
2 tablespoons crispy fried shallots
1 teaspoon chilli powder
lime wedges

Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the jackfruit, paprika and red onion and sauté
for 1 minute. Add the chipotle sauce, tomato paste, five spice powder and 3 tablespoons of water and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes or until the jackfruit is soft and cooked through. Break up the jackfruit using the back of a fork so that it appears ‘shredded’.

Meanwhile, combine all the tamari–maple sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

Fry the tortillas in a dry frying pan over high heat for 15 seconds on each side, then transfer to serving plates.
To assemble the tacos, divide the cabbage, carrot and jackfruit mixture among the tortillas.
Top with a few coriander leaves, crispy fried shallots and a good pinch of chilli powder.

Drizzle over the tamari–maple sauce and serve with lime wedges on the side.

  1. This sounds like a nice, light meal, Carol. And not difficult to make, either. It’s nice that there are so many options for a good meal that doesn’t revolve around meat.
