Vegan Jackfruit Burrito Bowl

A vegan savoury recipe…who even am I!!! It’s been a while, for a number of reasons. This body of mine is not a friend of most plants; that might be a slight exaggeration and I should probably say, wasn’t and is definitely getting better at digesting them.

I would love to be able to consume copious amounts of hummus, lentils and tofu, or heck maybe just even a smidge of each of the aforementioned on alternate days would be awesome!

Now I have tried Jackfruit a couple of times before and wasn’t a fan. The texture was a little too firm in parts and the ones I had tried had no real flavour. The Natures Charm Young Jackfruit Confit is packed with flavour, you could eat it just as is straight from the can. To be honest, lathering it in sauce ruins the work they have done to create such an awesomely seasoned product but I wanted to provide you with an alternative use and it’s soft supple fall apart texture just lends itself to being shredded.

For those of you looking to pick some up I have spotted it in Avoca stores recently in Ireland, it’s on the Asia Supermarket site and failing those you should be able to pick some up on Amazon!
