Easy Vegan Jackfruit Curry Recipe
By Earth of Maria
👩🍳Cook Time: 35 mins
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
7 oz cauliflower, chopped into florets
1 tin green jackfruit
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp paprika
1 tin coconut milk, either full fat or reduced fat
1 tin chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tamari
1 1/2 tbsp curry powder, or vegan curry paste
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 lemon, juice of
1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, or to taste
1Sauté the onion, garlic and cauliflower in a pan for 3-4 minutes, until softened and the onion and garlic are fragrant. Use either water or oil, depending on whether you want to keep this meal oil-free.
2Add the jackfruit. You can either pull apart the chunks using a fork before adding them to the pan, or break them up using a wooden spoon when they're in the pan already.
3Add the garam masala, turmeric and paprika. Stir together to coat the vegetables and jackfruit, and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, to allow the jackfruit to acquire a crispier texture.
4Pour in the coconut milk and tomatoes. Simmer over a medium heat for around 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5Add the tamari, curry powder, nutritional yeast and coconut sugar and simmer for further 15-20 minutes, stirring every few minutes and adding plant based milk or veggie broth if it starts to get too dry.
6At the last minute, add the lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
