Vegan Jackfruit Burger Recipe

Vegan Jackfruit Burger Recipe

Jackfruit has become a popular ingredient with cooks looking to replace meat in dishes thanks to its meaty texture. It lends itself particularly well to recipes that would typically contain pulled pork as it’s easy to shred and takes on the flavour of any marinade it’s soaked in.

If you’re looking to give jackfruit a try, this vegan jackfruit burger is a great way to get to grips with this trendy ingredient. They’re spiced with cumin and smoked paprika to make them super flavoursome and are delicious topped with coleslaw for a springtime dinner.
