Vegan Jackfruit Meat Substitute
Jackfruit is a large, spikey fruit, native to India and has been a part of the cuisine for centuries. While the matured and ripened Jackfruit can be consumed as is, or as a part of desserts, it is the unripe Jackfruit that is used as a vegan replacement for meats. It has a pale-green colour and meaty texture, while being fairly neutral in taste. In this form, Jackfruit meat readily takes on the flavours of the herbs, spices & curries it is cooked in, making it a very versatile cooking ingredient.
