Simple tutorial on how to make roast breadfruit in the oven – paleo, gluten free and vegan.
Prep Time:5 mins
Cook Time:1 hour 30 mins
Total Time:1 hour 35 mins
Half a breadfruit (can use whole)
Preheat oven on 180 degrees celsius or gas mark 4
Wash and dry the breadfruit.
Rub the entire breadfruit with coconut oil before wrapping it with foil. If roasting a whole breadfruit simply omit this step remove the stalk and score an X with a knife at the bottom.
Place the breadfruit accordingly in the middle of the oven to roast. The cooking time will vary depending on the size. Half a breadfruit should take roughly an hour and a whole one should take 1 hr 30 minutes.
Once cooked it should be soft and easy to pierce/prick with a knife.
Remove from oven and allow to cool then cut in half cooking a whole breadfruit. If not, move onto scooping and the heart and discard (the part where the stalk was)
Peel and cut the flesh into slices
Line a baking try with parchment paper then use a pasty brush to coat each slice with coconut oil.
Lay each slice on the parchment paper before placing back in oven to roast for a further 15 minutes or until golden brown – don’t forget to turn over half way through.
