  • 400 grams (2 packages) Upton’s original jackfruit
  • 1 T. avocado oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth
  • 1 T. smoked paprika
  • 1 T. soy sauce
  • 1 T. sesame oil
  • ½ to ¾ cups of vegan teriyaki sauce


To the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion and garlic and stir-fry over medium heat for 5 minutes until it starts to clarify. Add the jackfruit, broth, paprika, soy sauce, sesame oil and teriyaki sauce and continue cooking, covered, for an additional 10 minutes or more until jackfruit can be easily shredded using a couple of forks. The forks make shredding it easier.

At this point your teriyaki pulled jackfruit is ready to serve, however, you can spread it out on a baking sheet and bake at 400F for an additional 10 minutes to get a crisper, meatier texture. This can be served on a bun and eaten like a burger or served with rice or quinoa as a main dish. I like mine over baked potatoes with a side salad. Enjoy!
