It’s the first day of fall, which means it’s time to break out the crockpots and turn on the ovens—whether the weather’s ready or not! Here are ten of the (many, many) seasonally appropriate jackfruit dishes we can’t wait to make.
Italian Jackfruit Stuffed Peppers
Peppers are at their peak right now, and we’ve got a delicious way to use them. Stuff those babies with our Italian-style Complete Jackfruit Meal, add brown rice and fresh herbs, top with mozzarella, and pop in the oven for browned, bubbling, comfort food perfection.
Jackfruit Stuffed Acorn Squash
Kelly Pfeiffer of Nosh and Nourish for The Jackfruit Company
If you’ve been waiting for winter squash season, we’ve got good news—it’s here, and there are countless ways to celebrate. Start with this fun and flavorful recipe that makes good use of acorn squash, savory jackfruit, and other seasonal ingredients like quinoa, dried cranberries and portobello mushrooms.
Roasted Pumpkin Jackfruit Curry
Full of Plants
It’s official: jackfruit and squash are a match made in fall-flavor heaven. This cozy curry is a cinch to throw together, and so craveable on a chilly autumn day. Bonus: Your house will smell amazing while it simmers.
When the temperature dips, we want to warm up with some spicy green chili—especially when it’s made with hearty, meaty jackfruit! It’s great over rice or scooped up with some flour tortillas. Add a squirt of fresh lime, top with creamy avocado to cut the heat, and you’re all set.
Ashley Melillo of Blissful Basil for The Jackfruit Company
This time of year, you can’t have too many stew recipes up your sleeve. This one features a rich, creamy base (thanks to raw cashews blended with nutritional yeast and spices) that perfectly complements hearty veggies like cauliflower, carrots, kale, and (of course) jackfruit.
Beer Braised Jackfruit Enchiladas
Hearty, spicy, saucy, savory—this jackfruit enchilada recipe checks all the boxes when it comes to comfort food. We recommend making a big batch, as they’ll freeze well for later and the whole family is sure to love them.
Jo and Sue
When it comes to cold-weather cravings, nothing beats lasagna. This one features a savory “meat” mixture made of jackfruit, broccoli slaw, onions, tomato sauce and seasonings for a vegetarian version that you’ll want to make again and again.
Another comforting classic made meatless with jackfruit, this pot pie takes some time but is absolutely worth it. The combination of creamy, savory filling and flakey puff pastry is the stuff of dinnertime dreams. The recipe’s also fancy enough to impress company, so keep it on hand for the upcoming holidays.
Megan Faletra of The Well Essentials for The Jackfruit Company
This one’s for all the sports fans. If you equate fall weather with cheering on your favorite team, you know that nothing pairs better with the activity than nachos. Amp up the seasonal flavor by swapping out traditional chips for sweet potato rounds, and you’ve already won.
Hell Yes It’s Vegan
Made with a meaty combination of jackfruit, hearts of palm and plant-based sausage, this vegan gumbo’s sure to rival any you’ve had. It’s just the thing to make on a cool afternoon, for a week’s worth of amazing leftovers. Feeling festive? Turn the dish into a Halloween-themed treat à la Healthy Slow Cooking.
