25 Delicious Breadfruit Recipes

picture of breadfruit recipes

Here’s a roundup of 25 breadfruit recipes from some great food websites and bloggers. Breadfruit takes on a different flavor and texture depending on its state of ripeness: when unripe, its firm texture and mild flavor works best in savory breadfruit recipes. On the other hand, the doughy, sweeter ripe breadfruit is ideal in dessert recipes.

Its mild, unassuming flavor means it blends well with a wide variety of seasoning. Being a traditional food source in Hawaii and Polynesia, most of the time it is paired with tropical items. The tree’s ubiquity in South East Asia also means that breadfruit is often a feature in spicy curries and tangy soups.
