Jackfruit nachos

Serves: 2


  • 150g drained and rinsed canned young jackfruit
  • 200g drained and rinsed canned black beans
  • 200g canned diced tomatoes
  • ½ red capsicum, diced
  • 2 tsp harissa paste (or chilli sauce)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Sea salt
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp chipotle sauce
  • 3 Tbsp cashew cream cheese
  • 200g corn chips

To serve

  • 40g (½ cup) finely shredded red cabbage
  • Coriander leaves
  • Pickled red onion
  • Sliced pickled jalapeños
  • Lime cheeks


  1. Place the jackfruit, black beans, tomatoes, capsicum, harissa and paprika in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium and add 80ml (⅓ cup) of water. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 minutes. Season to taste with salt and mash the jackfruit using the back of a fork to break it up.
  2. Meanwhile, mash the avocado with three-quarters of the lime juice and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Combine the chipotle sauce and cashew cream cheese in a small bowl and stir through 1-2 teaspoons of water and the remaining lime juice to loosen the mixture to a pouring consistency. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  4. Construct your nachos on a serving platter. Start with a layer of corn chips, then spoon over the jackfruit and black bean mixture and smashed avocado. Top with the red cabbage, then scatter over a few coriander leaves and slices of pickled red onion and jalapeño. Drizzle over the chipotle cashew cream cheese and serve with lime cheeks.
