Do you know Jackfruit?
Jackfruit is a versatile fruit that is native to South India. It also is the national fruit of Bangladesh. The flesh of the jackfruit is starchy and fibrous and is a source of dietary fiber. The flavor of the ripe fruit is comparable to a combination of apple, pineapple, mango, and banana.
Jackfruit is also rich in potassium, calcium, iron, and carbohydrates and protein.With a meaty texture and the ability to take on the flavours you cook it with, unripe (green) jackfruit is quickly becoming the next big thing for vegan diets.Can you say Vegan Pulled Pork?
