As relatively new vegans, my husband and I are often drawn to new products in the vegan corner of the Publix produce department. There was a pleasantly package vegan entree called BBQ Jackfruit. One of the foods Tom misses (besides steak) is BBQ, so I thought we'd give it a try.
I liked the jackfruit consistency and sure liked that it wasn't a soy protein or other undesirable ingredients. It felt a little slick on my tongue but on a bun with a bit of a bread and butter pickle, it was pretty good. But, I found the BBQ sauce a bit hot for me. My tongue was on fire. But, I figured since we had our own favorite BBQ sauce, why not make my own. Next time I will.
The Jackfruit Co. has other flavors, like Teriyaki, Tex-Mex, and Curry.
I just ordered 6 cans of jackfruit (see "Where can buy jackfruit?" below).

Clean and simple eating is my goal. I love to cook and enjoy trying new recipes. All recipes included cover several diet types...raw vegan, vegan, vegetarian, low carb, and ketogenic. I have tried to remember to tag the recipes appropriately, but it is what it is.
