    Vegan Jackfruit Tahini Sandwich Recipe

    If you’ve been playing with the idea of incorporating more plants and less meat into your diet, jackfruit is a good stepping stone. With naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, this fruit may be the meat substitute you’ve been looking for.

    What Is Jackfruit?

    Jackfruit is a large and internally fleshy tree-growing fruit. When eaten raw, people say it tastes like a cross between a mango and pineapple.

    Young jackfruit, however, can be shredded, seasoned and cooked and is often compared to pulled pork both in flavor and overall texture. Give it a try with this delicious sandwich recipe!
