Vegan jackfruit fajitas recipe

Preparation time: less than 10 mins

Cooking time: 15 to 30 mins

Serves 4

What a fantastic variation of the classic chicken fajitas, jackfruit is a popular vegetarian and vegan choice as it has a great texture that is similar to meat. It falls apart like pork, it has tons of health benefits and overall is a perfect meat alternative.

In this recipe, we combine sweet red pepper, red onions and jackfruit with a fail-proof Mexican blend for the ultimate fajitas. Scoop them up with a flatbread wrap or taco shell and you will be on your way to a super delicious midweek dinner.

You can enjoy this fiery with chilli, simple with tomato passata or as a sweet BBQ flavour. Once you taste this recipe, I guarantee this will be a new favourite! It is a definite hit with our children, they prefer a milder taste and not too many chillies, but we add a little cayenne pepper or chilli’s sauce to our own to spice it up.


  • Red Bell Pepper (1)
  • Red Onion (1)
  • Olive Oil
  • Fresh or Dried Chilli (optional)
  • Fajita seasoning (1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground coriander, a large pinch of sea salt, and black pepper)
  • Tomato Passata (200ml) / BBQ sauce (100ml)
  • Tin of Jackfruit
  • Wheat Tortilla Wraps (see my recipe)


  1. Heat up a frying pan with a little olive oil. Then add your diced bell pepper, and red onion. Cook until softened.
  2. Add the jackfruit and cook for a few minutes, then add you fajitas seasonings and cook dry for one minute.
  3. Add either the tomato passata BBQ sauce and mix well. If the sauce is too thick add a little water to get the right consistency but be careful not to add too much otherwise it will make the wraps soggy.
  4. Once the mixture is all good, add it to fresh tortilla wraps with lettuce if you’d like. Enjoy!
