Korean Burrito

Fusion cuisine at its best.

Burritos and I have a passionate relationship – no matter the flavour and no matter what time of day.

After having discovered Kimchi Superkohl at the market at Boxhagener Platz a few months ago, I fell in love and decided to try out a few different recipes with what is now my new favourite kimchi!

The first of these recipes which I want to share is this Korean-inspired burrito. As well as kimchi, I added lettuce (or spinach), rice, sriracha mixed with lupin-mayo (Made With Luve carries my favourite vegan mayo), and jackfruit, cooked in a pear-based glaze.

The combination of all these ingredients results in a burrito that is at once fresh, satisfying, spicy and still light. Easy to prepare, and perfect as a lunch to take to work or on a picnic.

Vegan Korean Burrito


Korean Jackfruit

  • 2 cans jackfruit
  • 1 large pear, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 small knob fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 cup tamari or coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

For the burrito

  • cooked rice
  • kimchi
  • spinach or other greens
  • cilantro
  • sriracha mayo
  • large tortillas


  1. Drain your jackfruit tins. Cut the firm, pointy ends off each triangular piece of jackfruit (you can still use them if you wish, I don’t). 

  2. In a large sauce pan, add sesame oil. When oil is hot add ginger, garlic until soft. Add pear and cook until tender.

  3. Next, add the jackfruit, tamari or coconu aminos and coconut sugar. Let simmer gently for 10-15 minutes. (If you can, place in the fridge overnight to intensify the flavor.)

  4. Prepare all your burrito fillings. For the sriracha mayo I just mix my Lupin Mayo with sriracha!

  5. Assemble your burrito: on a pice of foil, lay a tortilla flat. Place the rice, jackfruit, kimchi, cilantro and sriracha mayo in the middle of the tortilla. Fold the sides up, then roll it up and wrap it with foil so you can easily bring your lunch to work!
