By: Naomi Sherman

These jackfruit carnitas are very similar in look and texture to pulled pork and have a delicious, deep, earthy flavour thanks to the marinade.

Ingredients

  • 2 tins jackfruit, drained & roughly pulled apart with forks
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp onion powder

Method


  • Place the ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine.

  • Preheat your oven to 200°C and line a large oven tray.
  • Drain the jackfruit and spread it out in a thin layer on your tray.
