Are you familiar with jackfruit? If you have never heard of it, jackfruit is a fruit cultivated in tropical countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, or Vietnam. It can be consumed both ripe or unripe.

Ripe jackfruit is sweet and has a texture similar to a semi-ripe mango. On the other hand, unripe jackfruit has no sweetness and a fibrous and meaty texture, making it a great vehicle of flavor!

If you are looking for meaty and delicious recipes that use this fantastic ingredient, you will love these vegan jackfruit recipes!
