If there were a league table of vegan ingredients then jackfruit would be sure to feature near the top. Many vegans love jackfruit for its ability to mock meat in recipes like pulled jackfruit, tacos and burgers. Whether you're vegan, vegetarian or simply trying to cut down on meat here are 15 delicious vegan jackfruit recipes you're sure to love.
What is jackfruit?
Jackfruit is a large yellowish fruit that grows in Asia and some parts of Africa. It's having something of a renaissance at the moment and as the vegan movement grows the uses for this weird and wonderful fruit seem to be limitless.
The flesh of this huge lumpy fruit has a texture that is uncannily like pulled pork when cooked. As you'll see from the jackfruit recipes below it works perfectly as a meat substitute in dishes such as chilli, curry, chicken soup, pulled pork burgers, and perhaps most commonly - tacos.
If you're not sure how to cook jackfruit I've gone into some detail in the intro to my smoky vegan pulled jackfruit tacos recipe. I hope you find it useful.
