Meet my new best friend – canned jackfruit in brine. Tropical fruit with colour and texture of meat and low in protein. Even my rather carnivorous husband thought it was meat and almost ate the whole pot. So here is a lovely simple recipe for you to enjoy.
1/2 can of jackfruit in brine (not syrup!)
1/4 cup tomato sauce or puree
2 tsp Taco seasoning
3 tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 tsp salt
Rinse the jackfruit under cold water to remove brine and chop coarsely into bite size pieces. Place in a hot skillet and add tomato sauce, seasoning, butter and sauce. Reduce heat to medium at cook, stirring occasionally for about 5min. If mixture gets too dry – add some water and reduce heat. After 5min tease the chunks of jackfruit apart with a fork. Simmer for another few minutes untill sauce thickens up. Serve hot as a main dish, in low protein bun, as a pasta topping or as an appetizer with low protein bread.
