Favorite Comfort Foods Featuring Jackfruit

Recipes to cozy up with this fall.

The First Day of Fall brings so much to look forward to: cozy layers, colorful leaves, festive celebrations, and (of course) comfort foods. From warming soups and stews to hearty casseroles, we’ve got a lot of delicious meals on our fall menu—and we’re making them all plant-based with young jackfruit.

Jackfruit + Red Beans + Rice

It doesn’t get more satisfying or comforting than a heaping bowl of Creole-style red beans and rice—especially when you add some of our Lightly Seasoned Jackfruit. Serve with a dash of your favorite hot sauce and a squeeze of fresh lime for the ultimate cold-weather feast.

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries with BBQ Jackfruit & Red Cabbage Apple Slaw

Keepin’ It Kind

All of our favorite fall flavors come together to create this fun twist on loaded fries. Crunchy red cabbage apple slaw provides the perfect counterpoint to saucy BBQ Jackfruit, elevating this from the typical game day snack to a perfectly respectable (and totally comforting) dinner.

Vegan Jackfruit Pot Pie

Zucker & Jagdwurst

Yes, a proper pot pie takes a bit of work to put together—but it’s always worth the effort. This one’s no exception. From the flakey crust with lattice topper to the creamy, savory filling of tender jackfruit and vegetables, every bite of this beauty will make you want to bake another ASAP.

Hearty Vegan Jackfruit Hotpot with Pink Pickled Onions

Hello Gemma

We love a recipe that lends itself to customization, and this one’s a great way to use up any leftover veggies (think carrots, potatoes, beets, kale, Swiss chart, etc.) Whatever you do, don’t skip the pickled onions as their color, flavor and texture absolutely make the dish.

Vegan White Bean Jackfruit Stew

Stacey Homemaker

The next time you tire of classic chili, try this variation made with great northern beans, jackfruit, mushrooms, and Italian seasonings. The magic happens when you use a stick blender to purée some of the mixture to create a silky, creamy, cozy broth. Serve with a chunk of good bread for dipping.

Smoky Vegan Jackfruit Stew

Blissful Basil for The Jackfruit Company

This time of year, you can’t have too many recipes for jackfruit stew—and this is one we reach for every year. The blend of soaked cashews, nutritional yeast, lemon juice and cauliflower makes a deliciously creamy base for Lightly Seasoned or Lemon Garlic Jackfruit.

The Best Jackfruit Curry

Rainbow Plant Life

The name says it all. If you’re going to keep just one jackfruit curry recipe on hand, this is an excellent choice. It features plenty of fall produce in the form of sweet potatoes and kale, as well as a beautifully balanced mixture of spices. Serve over rice, add a squeeze of lemon, and dig in.

Jackfruit & Potato Southwest Casserole


Sometimes, you want a flavor-packed fall meal but you don’t want to spend hours standing at the stove. Enter the casserole: Throw the ingredients together, pop it in the oven, and go about your day. This south-of-the-border variation is super delicious, gluten-free, plant-based, and even grain-free so everyone’s sure to love it.

Jackfruit Tortilla Soup

We recommend making this one while you can still get your hands on fresh corn and late-summer tomatoes. But even if you have to swap those for frozen or canned, you’ll be wowed by the flavor of this easy soup. We especially love it loaded with toppings like avocado, cilantro, and crunchy tortilla chips.

Jackfruit Taco Pizza

You can’t have a round-up of comfort foods without pizza, right? And this one goes the extra mile by combining another favorite comfort food—tacos! It’s the ultimate combo for a Sunday night dinner with the family, or a cozy get-together with friends on a chilly fall evening. Or just make it for yourself to eat in front of the TV—we won’t judge.
