General Tso’s Jackfruit (GF, V)

Not gonna lie, this does not scratch the itch for General Tso's chicken, but it is quiet good, and VERY easy to make.

General Tso’s Jackfruit (GF, V)

Changes: replaced soy sauce and hoisin sauce with coconut aminos; replaced ginger with all spice (allergy reasons); replaced corn starch with tapioca flour



1 tbsp EVO

1 20 ounce can green #jackfruit in brine

General Tso’s Sauce

3 tbsp rice vinegar

5 tbsp coconut aminos

½ tsp ground all spice

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp tapioca flour

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Garnishes & to Serve

2 tbsp green onion chopped

½ tsp sesame seeds

Steamed broccoli

Cooked rice


Drain, rise, and pat jackfruit dry. Using your hands or a fork, shred the jackfruit chunks into bite sized pieces. It should resemble a “pulled pork” texture.

Heat a pan over medium heat. Add the oil, jackfruit, and cook for 3-4 minutes until warm.

In a medium bowl combine all of the General Tso’s sauce ingredients together and whisk.

Add the sauce to the pan and mix until the jackfruit is covered in sauce. Gently simmer on medium-low heat for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce starts to thicken. Take the pan immediately off the heat.

Divide into bowls with rice and broccoli, garnish with sesame seeds and green onion.
