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, garlic, onion 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:
