Ingredients

Jackfruit Fries

  • 450g young green jackfruit
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g good quality BBQ Sauce
  • 1kg oven chips

Coleslaw

  • 2 carrots
  • 1 red onion
  • ¼ small white cabbage
  • 1 lime
  • 4 tbsp egg free mayo
  • 1 tbsp bbq sauce
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp tabasco
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Equipment

  • High sided frying pan with lid
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Clean tea towel

Method

  1. 1.

    Preheat oven to 200℃

  2. 2.

    Wash the jackfruit under a cold tap, pat dry with a clean tea towel. Warm 2 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the jackfruit, sprinkle over a little salt and pepper and fry for 3-4 minutes so the jackfruit begins to colour and crisp. Pour the BBQ sauce and 5 tbsp water into the pan and stir the jackfruit so the chunks are well covered. Put the lid on the pan and leave the jackfruit to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes.

  3. 3.

    Spread the oven chips out on a large baking sheet, put them in the oven and bake according to package instructions.

  4. 4.

    Whilst the jackfruit and fries are cooking, make the coleslaw. Peel and coarsely grate the carrot. Peel and finely slice the red onion. Core and finely shred the cabbage. Sprinkle the prepared carrots, red onion and cabbage into a mixing bowl. Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Add the egg free mayo, bbq sauce, maple syrup, tabasco, water and a light sprinkling of salt and pepper to the bowl and mix it together with a fork.

  5. 5.

    Drizzle the sauce over the prepared vegetables and toss so everything is well covered in the sauce.

  6. 6.

    Take the lid off the jackfruit and pull the chunks with 2 forks. Take the fries out of the oven and spread them over a large serving plate. Spread the jackfruit over the pulled jackfruit.

  7. 7.

    Sprinkle over the coleslaw and serve with some cold beers.
