Today, I offer you a new vegetarian recipe that we loved. I cooked shredded, pulled pork style, replacing the meat with jackfruit. The result is truly stunning. It is a vegetarian meal that will undoubtedly appeal to everyone.
Jackfruit is a fruit that is fairly regularly found in fresh produce stores. I confess that I have never tasted them. For this recipe, we use the fruit that is not yet ripe and put in brine. And that’s a little harder to find. I had spotted recipes for vegetarian pulled “pork” for quite some time. And, I really wanted to test, because I was sure that the result must be excellent. But, impossible to find these preserves, even in organic stores. I placed an order on Kazidomi shortly before Christmas, including several boxes of this famous jackfruit. Besides, I’m going to have to redo an order, because the 4 boxes went there in less than 15 days.
Preparing this frayed is a breeze. Once the fruits have been rinsed, simply shred them with your fingertips. It’s done very easily. Then, they are cooked with onion, garlic, spices and barbecue sauce. Cooking takes about 20/25 minutes. Afterwards, I prepared burgers with just barbecue sauce, fresh onions and salad. You can also prepare fajitas, tacos or serve as a full plate.
