Buffalo Jackfruit Tacos are a 30 minute meal with juicy jackfruit, cooling vegan ranch & celery slaw nestled into soft corn tortillas – a flavor explosion!



For the ranch:

  • 3/4 cup coconut cream (from the top of a can of coconut milk or a can of coconut cream)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water (you can use the coconut water from the can!)
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the tacos:


  1. Add the jackfruit and veggie broth into a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cover the pan and let it simmer until the liquid has absorbed and the jackfruit has softened, about 10 minutes
  2. While the jackfruit is simmering, stir together all the ranch ingredients. This makes extra ranch and will keep in the fridge for 7-10 days.
  3. Next, make the slaw. Add the cabbage, celery, and 6 tablespoons os the ranch to a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  4. Once the jackfruit has softened, use a potato masher to mash the jackfruit. The mashing action breaks the jackfruit into perfect effortless shreds! And in lieu of a masher, you can use a fork too. Add in the buffalo ingredients and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce coats the jackfruit.
  5. Pile the jackfruit into warmed tortillas. Top with slaw and ranch! Dig in and ENJOY!
