Food Prep Week 7/10-7/14

I used my trusty cookbook this week and made Jackfruit Carnitas.

This is the first time I ever cooked with Jackfruit and was quite pleased.  I will say the sodium is through the roof, but all in all it was very good.  I bought the canned Jackfruit from Sprouts and used my crockpot.

The recipe calls for veggie broth, but honestly I need to stop using it.  I bought the low sodium broth so that helped.  However, I should be using water.  I know I am not going to make my own broth, so that's not an option.

I added a house seasoning. I also added some cilantro, garliconion  and chipotle cubes.  I originally bought them at the 99 cents store, but Wal-Mart carries them for pretty close to the same price.

To top my tacos I added salsa, tofutti, vegan shreds, lettuce, avocado and onion.

I let the Jackfruit cook for 3.5 hours and it was more than tender.  So far I am happy with everything I am creating from this book.  It has changed my ideas up enough that I am not stuck eating the same things over and over.

Enjoy my tacos:
