If you’re not familiar with the jackfruit, it’s a tropical tree-borne fruit with origins with Africa, Brazil, and Southeast Asia. Ripe jackfruit has a sweet taste no too different from that of a pineapple; when unripe, it has a bland taste similar to that of a potato.
The fruit is having its moment in the limelight as its popularity continues to rise. A peek at Google Trends for “jackfruit” reveals that interest in the fruit is nowhere near its peak. Some researchers have even christened it a miracle crop because of its high nutritional value.
Among the reason behind the popularity of jackfruit is many consider it an excellent vegetarian or vegan meat substitute. Jackfruit has a texture much like that of pulled meat. One popular choice for using jackfruit is as a substitute for the pork filling in a pulled pork sandwich.
For some people, the taste of jackfruit is indistinguishable from that of pulled pork. For that reason, they use the fruit as a substitute for the meat in tacos, pulled “pork” sandwiches, and other similar recipes. Jackfruit also works well in yogurt, salads, grain bowls, and soups. You can even use it as a topping on pizza.
Another benefit of jackfruit is that the taste of the fruit when unripe isn’t naturally strong, meaning it can take on a variety of flavors. Many people season the fruit with spices such as paprika, chili powder, cardamom, and cumin.
Even with its nutrients and fiber content, the best way to get the most out of jackfruit as a meat substitute using it alongside other nutritious vegan foods. Consider including chickpeas, lentils, and quinoa in your jackfruit recipes.
If you come across jackfruit in your local market, give it a try. You’ll love it, especially if you’re the kind of person that likes to experiment with recipes and cooking techniques. It’s also great for people who recently become vegans and miss the texture and taste of meat.
