BBQ Jackfruit Taco Bowl

Have you ever cooked jackfruit before? Have you ever heard of jackfruit before?

I had only recently heard of jackfruit. I made it for lunch for the first time roasted in bbq sauce and it was so good, I felt the need to spread the news! Jackfruit, as the name implies is a fruit. However, if you chop it up and roast it in BBQ sauce, it actually tastes like pulled meat! It also resembles pulled meat. BBQ Jackfruit is so easy to make and is the perfect add to tacos, taco bowls, or to any bbq!

BBQ Jackfruit is the perfect compliment to any plant based recipe. I love that this meat alternative, is simply a fruit! So many meat alternatives are highly processed, high in sodium, and just don’t seem great for you! I love that jackfruit is completely natural and only 1 ingredient! I am a firm believer in eating real food so bbq jackfruit is a food that I can easily get on board with!

For this recipe, I used canned jackfruit that I found at Trader Joes. I put added the bbq jackfruit to a taco bowl to create a healthy and delicious, plant based Mexican meal.
