I’m a huge fan of loaded fries. I already shared several loaded fries recipes on my blog, for example loaded sweet potato fries. This time I made vegan loaded fries with pulled jackfruit. Jackfruit is such a great meat replacement!
I’ve used jackfruit instead of pulled pork or chicken several times before, like when I made vegan tacos. Pulled jackfruit also goes great with fries. For this dish you can either buy a package of pulled jackfruit in BBQ sauce (I used Rootzz of Nature), or you can use a can of jackfruit and pull it apart yourself and bake it with BBQ sauce. Most BBQ sauces are vegan, but check the label to be sure. The benefit of marinating your own pulled jackfruit is that you can just have a can of jackfruit and a bottle of BBQ sauce on your shelf and create it whenever want.
I’ve created this recipe with oven fries, which are healthier than deep fried fries. You can of course also use sweet potato fries instead of regular oven fries.
Recipe vegan loaded fries with pulled jackfruit
Ingredients (serves 2):
500 grams oven fries
325 grams jackfruit in BBQ sauce
1 red onion
2 spring onions
Fresh coriander (cilantro)
Vegan garlic sauce or vegan mayonaise
Vegan grated cheese
Preheat the oven to 220C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the fries over it and bake for 20-25 minutes. Hustle occasionally so that all sides have been on top.
Put a frying pan on medium fire. Add the jackfruit in BBQ sauce and a splash of water. Fry for 5 minutes, stir regularly.
Peel and cut the red onion, cut the spring onion and remove the stems of the cilantro.
Serve the fries with the pulled jackfruit in BBQ sauce, red onion, spring onion, vegan garlic sauce, vegan grated cheese and cilantro.
