  • 1 can of young jackfruit in brine, not syrup, rinsed and drained
  • 8 oz mushrooms sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 shallots sliced or chopped
  • 2 green onions chopped (optional)
  • 1 red chili pepper or jalapeño thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 tbsp tamari sauce
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1-2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp maple syrup optional
  • 1/2 lime the juice
  • To serve:
  • 4 soft shell corn tortillas
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Guacamole and/or salsa


  • Pour the contents of the young jackfruit can into a strainer, rinse and pat dry using a kitchen towel. Pull the pieces apart and remove any hard cores (you’ll want it to look similar to pulled pork). 
  • Sauté the sliced mushrooms in a large non-stick pan with the olive oil over medium to high heat for 5-7 minutes. 
  • Add the jackfruit, shallots, green onions, garlic, chili pepper and seasonings (except the maple syrup and lime juice) to the pan and mix well. 
  • Cook for 10-12 more minutes and add the remaining ingredients to the pan. Mix again, taste test and add more salt and/or liquid smoke if need be. 
  • Serve with the taco shells, cilantro and dip of your choice. Enjoy!


  1. Liquid smoke can be found in the condiment aisle at most supermarkets. Some are more concentrated than others, so start with 1 tsp and then add more if desired. 
  2. You can replace the jackfruit with either more mushrooms, lentils, seitan or chickpeas (for extra protein).
