If you don’t know about jackfruit yet, you will soon. It’s one of the most interesting plant-based ingredients for vegan cooking to hit the market recently and is set to be one of the biggest trends of 2018. And now jackfruit is available from Bidfood.
But why is jackfruit perfect for your own vegan creations? It is all about the way it looks and its texture which resembles meat once prepared. It also doesn’t have much flavour itself, but absorbs the flavours of the sauces you cook it in which is what makes it such a versatile ingredient.
To prepare jackfruit to make it look like a pulled meat, simply cut the core off of the jackfruit chunks – this can be used in recipes where you want a more dense jackfruit piece, for example in stews so don’t throw it away. Once the cores have been removed pull apart the jackfruit so that it looks shredded. This can be added to sautéed onions to give it a little flavour and then coated in the sauce and spices of your choice to create your dish.
