Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do with jackfruit. Like tofu, it doesn’t have much taste on its own, and must soak up the flavor of other ingredients. Jackfruit’s texture is a bit like pulled pork (but without the gristle), so it’s great in tacos and tostadas. Recently, we discovered a recipe for jackfruit tostadas that sacrifices none of the heat or flavor of meat, yet is completely vegan and gluten-free! You’ll be delighted by the authenticity of this savory dish. Not to mention the low cost of ingredients, and the ease of cooking!
If you like Indian food, you’ll love this simple but elegant recipe! This dish has a delicate flavor yet is creamy, robust and filling for a cold winter’s evening. It is inexpensive and incredibly easy to prepare. You can serve it with either unpolished white rice (Basmati is best) or brown rice. The addition of turmeric and cumin imparts a nice spiciness to the flavor. We like our dish piquant, so we’re generous with spices. Adjust for your own taste. If you don’t have new potatoes, you can cut up red or even russet potatoes and use those instead. Truly a winner!
