I love jackfruit! I wasn’t sure I would, but it is perfect! Soy-free, gluten-free, and budget-friendly goodness just ready to absorb whatever seasonings my heart and tummy crave. Jackfruit carnitas have been the biggest hit overall, but jackfruit and black bean enchiladas work, too.
Get to an Asian market and pick up a can or two of young jackfruit in brine. Drain, rinse, season, and cook. Dump it in a crockpot with onions and your favorite barbecue sauce. Want to cook it on the stove? Saute the jackfruit and onions, then simmer in sauce on low-medium heat. Serve it with slaw, beans, and cornbread or a bun. 35 minutes from can to table if you have sauce on hand.
Have you tried jackfruit yet? What did you think?
