Instructions

Jackfruit

  • Drain and rinse the jackfruit and chop it up, making sure to chop up the tougher core parts. If you have frozen jackfruit, make sure it's thawed first.

  • Heat 1 TBL of oil in a saute pan on medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 2 minutes or until golden brown.
    1 tbsp oil, 1 small onion - sliced
  • Add the chopped jackfruit, minced garlic,  taco seasoning, smoked paprika, 1soy sauce, chipotle powder (optional if you don't like spice), and 1 cup of water. Cover with a lid and simmer on medium low for 15-20 minutes, or until the jackfruit softens. If water runs out before it's softened, add a little more.

  • If it dries up too much, add a splash of water, if it's too soggy, take the lid off and cook the water out.
  • Once jackfruit has cooked, shred it with a fork, or a potato masher.
  • Taste and add more salt or soy sauce if needed
  • Optional- if you'd like a firmer texture, spread jackfruit out on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for 10 minutes (after doing all of the above instructions)
