Hoisin jackfruit & mushroom tacos with peanut slaw

I’m writing this up from beautiful Bali. I have been desperate to visit for a few years now and wow, I’m so impressed with this lovely county. Friendly people, amazing energy and of course absolutely incredible vegan food. There’s everything ranging from raw to traditional Balinese dishes – all super inspiring.

I’ve eaten quite a lot of interesting jackfruit dishes here – are you a jackfruit lover? It’s a bit of a vegan go-to these days isn’t it.
I really like the texture and mostly enjoy eating it in curries but I haven’t posted any recipes here for some unknown reason – Anyway I thought it was about time.

So here it is – my absolutely delicious hoisin jackfruit and mushroom filled pancakes with a crunchy slaw with peanut dressing. The combination of rich and deep mushroom & jackfruit mix, squidgy pancake wrap and topped with super crunchy peanutty slaw is so good.
Feel free to add more fresh Coriander, mint and salted peanuts for crunch.

Enjoy Xx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.

    This is one of the best meals ever eaten, haha. seriously. I’m making it again tonight for a birthday treat! (I can’t eat garlic, so I sub that out, and made the slaw with whatever veg I had. I also make my own hoisin sauce (to be healthy) with peanut butter, juice of an orange, tamari, maple syrup and chines five spice).
