Have you ever heard of Jackfruit? Until a week ago I had never heard of it. Someone posted a week's worth of vegetarian meals and when the photo of a Jackfruit sandwich came up, I immediately thought - that's pork!
It's a giant fruit grown in Asia and some can get as large as 100 pounds.
Behold my sandwich made with Jackfruit. Don't you think it looks like pork? It has a very similar texture to meat, and well....pork in particular.
If you are a vegetarian (or a vegan ) and abhor the texture of meat, even TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) then you won't like this. But if you routinely add a TVP, or like that texture, you may like this.
It comes refrigerated and suggests you use within 5 days of opening the package. Did we like it? Well, we don't like very spicy food and I neglected to check the full list of ingredients, too much red pepper spice for us. I was expecting a plain BBQ type sauce.
I am willing to try other sauces on Jackfruit but overall, I think we satisfied our curiosity. If you'd like to read more check out the company HERE.
I will be joining Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for her Souper Sunday series. This week's linkup may be found HERE.
