Absolutely obsessed with this vegan buffalo jackfruit dip, a new and improved, vegan-ized version of my bacon buffalo chicken dip from a few years ago. Honestly, jackfruit is one of the best culinary discoveries I’ve made in the last year, and I feel like I’ve started using it in just about everything! Tacos, curries, sandwiches, and dips–you name it, I’ve probably put jackfruit in it. This recipe, however, remains one of my favorites! And it appeals to both meat-eaters and vegans alike with its creamy, rich texture and deliciously spicy taste.

The garlic herb dippers also pair especially well with their crispy tops and soft, buttery bottoms for maximum texture harmony. I hope you try this awesome vegan buffalo jackfruit dip at your next party–or just make it for yourself and spend three days eating it out of a Tupperware container like an animal (speaking from experience, of course).

  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Directions:

Vegan Buffalo Jackfruit Dip

  1. Boil cashews in water for 1 hour. Drain cashews and add to a blender with silken tofu and nutritional yeast. Blend until smooth and set aside.
  2. Heat a small sauce pot on medium/medium-low, and add buffalo sauce, 2 tbsp butter, 1 tsp garlic powder, paprika, chipotle powder, cayenne pepper, and mustard powder. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring consistently, until butter has melted and spices have become fully incorporated. Reduce to low/remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium/medium-high, and add diced onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, and salt. Sauté for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables have become browned and fragrant.
  4. Add jackfruit, rinsed and drained if necessary, and sauté with vegetables for an additional 3-5 minutes or until cooked through. Then, reduce heat to low, and add buffalo sauce mixture to the pan. Stir until everything is incorporated, about 1-2 minutes, and remove from heat.
  5. To a large mixing bowl, add buffalo vegetable sauté, tofu cashew cream, cheddar shreds, and cubed mozzarella. Fold gently with a spatula to ensure everything is incorporated, then transfer to a casserole or baking dish.
  6. Top with additional cheddar shreds and bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving warm from the dish.

  2. In a small bowl, melt 6 tbsp butter and combine with 2 tsp garlic powder and fresh thyme. Brush over baguette rounds.
  3. Broil rounds on high (or bake at 525F) for 3-4 minutes, or until the tops have become browned and crisp while the undersides are still warm and soft.
