While I love a good intricate recipe, sometimes I do reach for vegan eats that involve a handful of ingredients, 20 minutes, and that’s it!


Some recipe are so effortless they are not worth sharing. However, for these vegan Buffalo Jackfruit Tacos they are so good and so easy, it would be a tragedy not to lol. 








What I love about this recipe is, everything. You can serve the jackfruit in a taco shell or a soft taco, top with whatever veggies you desire, has great aesthetic appeal, can be thrown together in minutes with minimal effort, has the classic heat of the buffalo sauce and the coolness of the vegan blue cheese, is perfect for entertaining and of course will make you look like a true iron chef!





The biggest obstacle is finding jackfruit for your recipe! I source mine from Amazon and it’s in brine, no syrup! 


If you’re looking to explore the world of jackfruit, but are not ready to dive in with using the raw fruit itself or simply love effortless vegan eats that involve minimal everything..
