Jackfruit Satay Skewers with Peanut Sauce
These Jackfruit satay skewers with peanut sauce are one of my favorite vegan things to eat. It’s recipes like these that show you don’t need to eat meat. Great flavors, texture and overall plant based goodness… what more could you want 🙂 Serve over rice and vegetables. Or great with a fresh crispy salad!

  1. Cut your jackfruit into bite size pieces by cutting the core off and then cutting the outer part into bit size pieces. I usually thread the core pieces on to separate skewers because they are a little bit harder than the outer pieces. Watch video for full demonstration.
  2. Next, place all of the marinade ingredients in a blender and blend until it is smooth. Pour over the jackfruit, mix through and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (or overnight).
  3. Preheat oven to 200C/400F and thread the jackfruit on to skewers. I use metal ones, but if you want to use bamboo skewers, be sure to soak them first so they don’t burn in the oven. You could also thread on once it has been cooked.
  4. Place the skewers onto a baking tray lined with non-stick parchment paper and place in the oven for 15 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, place all of the satay sauce ingredients in to a blender and blend until smooth.
  6. Remove the skewers from oven at 15 minutes and baste with strained marinade. Put in for another 15 minutes or until browned to your liking.
  7. Serve with a salad, over rice or eat just as is. The satay sauce just goes so well with this 🙂 Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

The blender I use for the satay sauce is a Tribest Personal Blender. Find it using my Amazon link: http://cookingwithplants.com/visit/amazon-com-tribest/

For a thicker satay sauce, you can heat it in a pot and add a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken it up. You could also add any remaining marinade to this also.
