Tacos - 

Corn tortillas

1 can jackfruit

1 tbsp Culley’s tropical hot sauce #7

1/2 tbsp tahine

Toppings - 


Red cabbage

Red onion

Green onion

Fresh coriander



Cashew cheese sauce -

1/2 cup soaked cashews

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder


Ghost pepper salsa -

4 diced tomatoes

1 green onion

1 tsp ghost pepper

1 1/2 tsp Culley’s ghost pepper hot sauce #9

Juice of 1 lime

Pinch of salt

Fresh coriander


Tacos - 

Drain jackfruit and spread onto baking tray. Mix with tropical hot sauce and tahine seasoning. Add a splash of water if too difficult to lather. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes then remove and pull apart jackfruit. Continue to cook for 15-20 min until cooked through. Heat corn tortillas in a pan until lightly crispy.

Salsa -

In a blender, add diced tomatoes (remove pulp to avoid the salsa being too runny), green onion, ghost pepper sauce, salt, lime, and a handful of fresh coriander. Blend into a smooth salsa. 

Cashew cheese sauce -

Combine all ingredients in a blender besides the paprika. Add 1 tbsp of water before blending to make a smooth creamy sauce. Sprinkle on paprika when serving (optional)

To serve:

Serve tacos with thinly sliced cabbage (season with lemon and salt to remove dryness), radish, green onion, diced red onion, fresh coriander, sliced chili, and lime wedges. Drizzle on salsa and cashew cheese.
