Today I bring you something new! Yesterday I was experimenting with the Jackfruit, the largest fruit in the world, which for a few months has invaded the Internet thanks to the impressive results that can be achieved very easily with it. This is not a local fruit.

On most occasions I have seen the use of the Jackfruit as an alternative to tofu, seitan… and the best-known meat substitutes, and I must admit that it gives very good results! Its texture is juicy and when crumbling it, it breaks into filaments that at first glance have a certain resemblance to chicken or tuna.


For the Jackfruit burger:
1 can of 400 gr. of Jackfruit
3/4 onion
1 garlic
Sweet paprika
Hot paprika
Cumin powder
Soy sauce
Olive oil
Hamburger bun
For the simplified Guacamole:
1 avocado
1/4 onion
1/2 tomato

Step by step

  1. Open the can of Jackfruit and drain the liquid. Place the Jackfruit in a deep plate and gently dry it with a clean cloth.
  2. Using a fork, break up the Jackfruit until the filaments are separated. Optional: I removed the base of the Jackfruit that does not fall apart, which remains as a small block, but you can leave it without any problem.
    Open, strain and crumble the Jackfruit.

  3. Now we season the Jackfruit with the previous spices. The quantities that I am going to put are a minimum that I recommend, but I later seasoned something else. I recommend you try it a little until it is to your liking.
    We spice with: 2 teaspoons of sweet paprika, 1 teaspoon of hot paprika, 1 point of cumin, 1 long splash of soy sauce, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of curry.

  4. Let it rest and continue.
  5. First of all, we will cut the hamburger bun in half and we will toast it on all sides in a frying pan, without olive oil, keeping the fire at low power, until the bread browns and browns. not a bit crispy. Reserve.
  6. Finally chop the garlic and onion. Grease a frying pan with olive oil and sauté the garlic. When golden, add the onion and sauté until golden.

  7. When it’s ready, remove a small portion of the onion and garlic and set it aside (it will decorate the Jackfruit burger on top).
  8. < li>On the other hand, we add the jackfruit to the pan that contains the rest of the onion and garlic. Grease with a little olive oil if necessary.

  9. Sauté for 5 minutes and add another splash of soy sauce.
  10. Sauté 5 more minutes.
  11. Meanwhile, we prepare the guacamole. Mash the avocado in a bowl. We add 1/4 of a very finely chopped onion, the tomato cut into small cubes and a pinch of salt. Mix very, very well.
  12. Place guacamole on the bottoms of the two buns and add the sautéed Jackfruit on top.
    Separate part of the onion and add the Jackfruit to the pan .

  13. To finish, we place the onion that we had previously removed, decorating the upper part. We close with the bread.
  14. Now comes something optional but recommended: to give the final touch to the hamburger, I put it whole for 5 minutes in the hot oven, turned on at 180 degrees. In this way the bread becomes super crispy and toasty, and the result is amazing. Highly recommended.
