This is my favourite vegan BBQ jackfruit recipe, which I also tweaked to be lectin free.  I use this for slider buns, pizza and wraps…enjoy!


Large can young green jackfruit in brine or water (I used ceres organics 400g)

1 tbsp olive oil + for frying

1 medium onion

2-3 cloves of garlic

1-2 tsp paprika

2 tsp ground cumin

1-2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp sea salt (I used celtic or Iodised sea salt)

3/4 cup bbq sauce (bought or homemade)



  1. Drain jackfruit and cut into shreds. Place in a bowl. Add all seasonings and olive oil. Toss to combine and set aside for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in large pan. Then add onion & cook for about 5 min which is when it should go translucent. Then add the cloves of garlic, crushed and cook for another 1 minute.
  3. Add the seasoned jackfruit and cook for about 3-5 minutes until it gets a bit crispy. Stir occasionally while it’s cooking.
  4. Add bbq sauce and simmer for about 10 minutes on low heat (I used Niulife BBQ sauce). If it gets a little thicker, you can add a bit of water which will create more sauce too.

How To Serve:

  • Put it on lectin free bread burger buns
  • Add it to coconut wraps
  • Add it to seaweed wraps
  • Put on lectin free toast
  • Add it to your homemade pizza (recipe coming soon)


Thank you to Bianca Zapatka for the original recipe that I tweaked to make lectin free
