Jackfruit – Vegan Meat Alternative
I love discovering new meat alternative ingredients.
I tried a jackfruit “pulled pork” sandwich for the first time about ten years and finally decided to try making it myself.
Jackfruit is native to India and has been popular with vegans for years and can be used in dishes like tacos, enchiladas, and pulled “pork” barbecue sandwiches. I followed a jackfruit “pulled pork” recipe and used it for a “carnitas” style taco filling.
My husband loved it and didn’t even question me about what it was. I’m always trying to find unique and tasty ways to get my family to eat more plant-based foods.
*Make sure to buy the canned unsweetened organic young (unripened) jackfruit. You can also find flavored ready to use jackfruit in some supermarkets next to the tofu and other vegetarian items.
