Pulled Jackfruit Chipotle Tacos by Mondays Wholefoods

Here at I AM Co. one of our favourite things to do is enjoy visiting the great cafes around the country. We’re so spoilt to have such an amazing range of cafes serving some hugely delicious, healthy food from a wide variety of cultures. Some of these cafes have been generous enough to share some of our favourites with you….

Tucked down a Kingsland driveway and covered in vines, you’ll find a lovely little wholefoods bar & kitchen. Open for breakfast, lunch and private functions. Go and check them out for some delicious, nutritious dishes!


  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 8 cans jackfruit
    1⁄2 can of salsa piccante
  • 800g chopped tomatoes
  • 800ml water
  • 2 tbsp vegetarian stock

Fry onions until soft in big pot. Add all the jackfruit and remaining ingredients. Cook on low heat for about 4.5 hours or until the jackfruit is falling apart looking like pulled pork (no hard pieces). Mash it very well with whisk to avoid the big chunks.

Serve on flour tortillas.
