Chop the jackfruit into thin slices. Slice them from the core to the edge. This will help to give a shredded texture.
Take a large skillet and heat oil on a medium-high flame. Add onions and garlic to hot oil and saute them for 5 minutes till they turn brown and soft.
Add jackfruit, broth, agave, lemon juice, and other spices and cover. Reduce the heat to a minimum until half of the liquid is evaporated and jackfruit becomes soft.
Using a potato masher, mash the jackfruit to get them shredded. If the jackfruit is wet, cook them more and if they seem dry, add some vegetable broth to it.
Take taco shells and warm them. Add a scoop of the mixture into the taco. Top them with avocado slice, red onions, cilantro, and squeeze a lemon.
Tacos are ready to serve.
