Prep Time 30 minutes
Servings 6


  • 2 cups jackfruit seeds
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1/4 cup garlic spread (made from garlic, oil, lemon juice, and salt)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Olive oil and herbs for serving


  1. Clean the jackfruit seeds of any excess membranes from the fruit. Place in a medium saucepan and cover with water until there is at least one inch of water above the seeds. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes, or until seeds can be easily pricked with a fork.

  2. Remove seeds from heat and cool. Carefully peel off the outer layer of the shell (hard, clear) - some of which will have started to pop off during the cooking. Any remaining brown coating on the shell is fine to eat. Add the seeds and all other ingredients to a food processor and puree until smooth. Serve with olive oil drizzled over the top and with herbs of your choice to decorate.
