Jackfruit Fajitas

  • RECIPE MAKES: 4 serves| 1g per serve
  • PREP TIME: 10min
  • COOK TIME: 20-25min
Step 1

Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat.  

Step 2

Add the onion, capsicums, mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, cherry tomatoes, garlic and jackfruit to the frying pan and fry for 5 minutes.   

Step 3

Add the coriander, fajita mix, tomato paste and lemon and cook for a further 15-20 minutes or until everything is soft (add a small amount of water to reach the desired ‘filling’ consistency).

Step 4

Using a fork, remove the lemon and season to taste.  


Step 5

Serving Suggestion:

Serve a sprinkle of low protein vegan cheese,           fresh coriander leaves and/ or salsa.   If your protein allowance allows top  with mashed avocado for a delicious addition.


Top Tip:

If you don’t have any low protein tortilla’s on hand store bought gluten free wraps can be used if your protein allowance allows. Always check the label as most contain 2-3g protein per wrap. 

 Add some chilli powder for a spicy kick!
