A part from making salad, breadfruit is also boiled, baked and roasted

roasted breadfruitroasted bread and fried salted mackerelbreadfruit

1 medium-size boiling breadfruit, peeled/washed/cut into cubes
1/2 cup cooked string beans
1/2 cup carrots, scraped/washed/diced/cooked
4 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 canned sweet corn, drained
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. all-purpose seasoning
You can use 1 canned of mixed vegetables instead of the string beans, carrots, and

sweet corn; that's what I did.
You can use cock flavoured soup mix if you want a 'somewhat' spicy taste

Put a medium-size pot over medium-high heat with 10 cups of water, add salt to

taste, cover and bring to a boil. Add breadfruit cubes and boil until cooked (tender)
If use the flavoured cock soup mix; put 10 cups of water into the pot, put the pot

over medium-high heat, pour the cock flavoured soup mix into a sieve to separate

the flavour from the noodle, add the flavour to the pot and discard the noodle. Cover

pot and bring to a boil.Do not add any salt, add breadfruit cubes and boil until

Drain off the water and put the cooked breadfruit cubes into a large bowl, set aside

to be cool.
Mash the breadfruit cubes, using a fork or a potato masher. Adjust the taste by

adding salt if needed. Sprinkle on the black pepper and all-purpose seasonings.

Gently fold in the mixed vegetables. Add the mayonnaise.
Keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Breadfruit salad is easily spoil; even

when kept in the refrigerator, therefore, it is best to use all of it or throw away the leftover


If using the string beans and carrots.
Cook the string beans and carrots together, in a pot with salted water over medium

heat until soft, drain off water then set aside to be cool, next, fold in the string beans

and carrots in the mashed breadfruit, then follow the rest of the instructions.
Use 1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese to tun (enhanced) up the taste
