Good pulled pork substitute

July 04, 2019

Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone 😁

Have you ever heard of jackfruit? It is a large, green tropical fruit that grows in bunches on trees. The fruits flesh is naturally fibrous and delicious.

Its texture has been compared to that of pulled pork when marinated in a BBQ-like sauce. 🔥

You can buy it in canned form, which many will find easier to work with.

Jackfruit is rich in Vitamin A, C, B6, magnesium and fiber. 👍 If you are ever in a supermarket and see a light green, oval shaped, spiky fruit that is jackfruit.

I made gluten free @latortillafactory jackfruit wraps yesterday with spinach, red pepper, avocado, sliced jalapenos, cabbage, green onion and lime. I whipped up a mayo sriracha dressing to mix with all the toppings. 👌 👌 It would also be delicious in sloppy Joe's or pulled pork sandwiches.

One thing I love about this product is that it doesn't contain soy like most other meat substitutes do.
