These Cheesy Jackfruit Nachos are a delicious vegan alternative to classic nachos with no compromise on flavour.

We’ve used Amazonia Tender Jack pulled jackfruit in this recipe which is an ideal meat substitute because of its texture and mild flavour. We recommend serving with guacamole, cherry tomatoes, vegan cheese (or organic cheddar cheese) and broccoli sprouts.

Perfect for a grazing style dinner!

Jackfruit Nachos

What is jackfruit?

Jackfruit is a large, tree-borne fruit, native to tropical Asia. Young Jackfruit has a tender, meat-like consistency and a subtle taste, making it extremely versatile and perfect in savoury dishes such as salads, burgers, tacos, pizzas and much more. Amazonia Tender Jack is made from organically grown Jackfruit hand harvested from abundant food forests across the ‘Land of Jack’. This cultivation helps to keep these forests standing and provides an ethical, nourishing food source. Amazonia Tender Jack is a source of dietary fibre and contains no artificial ingredients.

To cook we’ve used extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). We recommend using EVOO in cooking as it is high in stable monounsaturated fat, low in unstable polyunsaturated fat and exceptionally high in natural antioxidants. This provides significant protection against degradation to toxic compounds when heating. Despite popular belief, smoke point is not a good predictor of how stable an oil is to cook with.To cook we’ve used extra virgin olive oil. Read more about this here.
