These Jerk Jackfruit wraps make a perfect lunch! Make the individual elements in advance and just construct your wrap each day. Hope you love it!



  • 1 large sweet potato - peeled and cut into wedges
  • 400g tin of young jackfruit in water - drained and rinsed
  • 2-3 teaspoons of jerk seasoning
  • 400g tin of kidney beans
  • 1 little gem lettuce - roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of vegan mayo
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 6 roti (paratha roti also work)
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil


  1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 5/190c.
  2. Toss the sweet potato wedges in a good glug of olive oil with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  3. Put the wedges on a baking tray and chuck in the oven for 15-20 minutes - turn them halfway through.
  4. While the wedges are in the oven, in a bowl toss the jackfruit in 2 tsp of jerk seasoning.
  5. Heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan to a low-medium heat.
  6. Add the jackfruit to the pan and cook for around 5 minutes, giving it the occasional stir.
  7. Once the 5 minutes is up, grab a couple of forks and gently pull apart the jackfruit until it's shredded. If it's a bit tough still, give it a couple more minutes to soften up before you pull it apart.
  8. Add the kidney beans to the jackfruit and gently heat for a couple of minutes while stirring.
  9. Give it a quick taste and add more jerk seasoning or salt if needed.
  10. In a bowl mix the mayo with the juice of half the lime and a good helping of black pepper - give it a taste and add more lime juice if necessary. It should be perfectly zesty and fiery.
  11. When everything is ready, you can start putting the wraps together - add a good dollop of mayo, a couple of sweet potato wedges, 1/6 of the jackfruit mix and a handful of lettuce to each roti and wrap them up like a burrito.


Everything will last a couple of days in the fridge. We have this over a few days during the week – it’s a super easy and simple recipe for taking to work or on-the-go.
