It’s Taco Tuesday everyone!
This is my first Taco Tuesday post and after my vegan jackfruit tacos recipe I have for you this week, it won’t be the last!
Ever since the beginning of the year, we have been looking for more quick, easy and healthy recipes. December tired us out with all of the festive cooking, baking and eating and after getting back from holiday the year started out with a frenzy of work! We were getting home after a long day and making a massive meal was the last thing we wanted to do.
So, for January we are getting back to food that’s easy to make, good for your body and budget friendly too! In order to simplify our days, while also making sure we are eating as healthy as we can, we decided to make and share all the easy, healthy recipes we create with you all.
Our first easy recipe uses one of our favourite ingredients: jackfruit! A rich source of vitamins and minerals, jackfruit is perfect for cooking with its sweet taste and ability to take on almost any flavour.
Vegan Jackfruit Tacos
The vegan jackfruit is so easy to make in advance and store in the fridge for those days that where something from scratch is just not an option. Not only does this intensify the flavour of the jackfruit but it also makes it super easy to make lunch for the next few days!
All you have to do is make your tacos, add the jackfruit and your toppings and BAM! A healthy vegan lunch that is ready in 5 minutes.
Where can I get jackfruit?
I buy my jackfruit at a small Asian supermarket near my house, Yat Sang. If you don’t have an Asian supermarket near you, Amazon also has the jackfruit I use in stock.
Just make sure you buy jackfruit in brine, not syrup as jackfruit in syrup is very sweet and won’t work for this meal.
Now, on to the recipe!
Have you ever made a meal with jackfruit before? Let me know in the comments below and, if this is your first time making vegan jackfruit tacos, give me shout on Instagram with #deliciousplants so I can take a look!
