For the nuggets:

  • 2 tins young jackfruit pieces, drained
  • 250g stale white bread, roughly torn,
  • crusts removed
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp hot smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • 200ml almond milk
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

For the barbecue sauce:

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 4 tbsp dark muscovado sugar
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard


  • Add the torn bread to the mini chopper bowl of your Triblade System Hand Blender and pulse until you have fine crumbs. Remove to a bowl and reserve.
  • Into the same mini chopper bowl (there is no need to wash the bowl), add the flour, herbs and spices and seasonings. Pulse together and reserve in a bowl.
  • Add the mustard, garlic and almond milk to the goblet of your Triblade System and blend thoroughly, using the blending wand attachment. Remove the mixture to a bowl and reserve.
  • Dip each piece of jackfruit into the spiced flour, followed by the almond milk mixture and then finally the breadcrumbs. Repeat with the rest of the jackfruit.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat, until a piece of bread dropped in turns golden.
  • Fry the jackfruit nuggets in batches until golden brown and remove to drain on kitchen paper. Keep warm in a low oven.
  • For the barbecue sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat and add the onion and the garlic. Sweat the vegetables for a few minutes, until they are beginning to soften, but not gain colour.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes and remove from the heat.
  • Once the mixture is cool blend until smooth using the blending wand attachment on your Triblade System. Serve with the jackfruit nuggets.
