Vegan 'Meaty' Stew?
My mother is not a vegetarian and she sampled a little bit of this Sesame Ginger Teriyaki Jackfruit and thought it tasted like meat, too!
Normally I am not a fan of meat alternatives or fake meats but I think because this is straight up fruit based it seemed to be better than a lot of the others you see on the market.
It came as a packet that you could heat and serve and I just added carrots to it and poured it over pasta.
Overall it was a very impressive product. I don't think it's something that I would eat everyday as it was a little more salty than I like...but it had a good flavor.
The reason I bought it was purely because of the Jackfruit! It's rare to find Jackfruit anything around me! I've only ever had Jackfruit flavored things and have also had dried Jackfruit that I bought from The Raw Food World. This was a nice change and certainly gave me some ideas as to what to do with it if I can find some down the road. Other ideas that I am drawn to are Jackfruit Tacos and Jackfruit Sandwiches (instead of Pulled Pork Sandwiches), for example.
