Great for: Meatless Monday
I am a weekday vegetarian, and as you can probably guess, that means I only eat meat on weekends. Until recently I never really had a need for meat substitutes because I knew I could get the real thing come Saturday. So I never really experimented much with the classic tofu and tempeh, but I just discovered the wonder that is jackfruit...
A few years ago I tried fresh jackfruit and frankly I didn't like it at all, but I had a sandwich this past week that made me see it in a new light. Cook this fruit with some spices and you end up with a meat substitute that resembles pulled pork in both appearance and texture. My mind is still blown.
Try these tacos on Meatless Monday OR Taco Tuesday! I fed them to my roommates last night and they couldn't believe it wasn't the real thing.
