Jackfruit is easily my favorite vegan meat substitute because it tastes delicious and although it is canned, it’s definitely less processed than vegan sausages (but we do occasionally enjoy this vegan sausage peppers and rice skillet) or vegan burgers (my husband loves Beyond Burgers!).
I always recommend to new vegans or to vegans who are serving meat-eaters a meal to serve a jackfruit recipe because it tastes so much like meat! It helps new vegans to easily transition because they can still eat their favorite recipes while substituting jackfruit for meat, and it’s a great dish to serve non-vegans because it shows them how delicious vegan food can be!
