Potato and Jackfruit stew

A deliciously comforting smokey stew with meaty jackfruit chunks.

I don’t often cook with jackfruit, its fairly new ingredient to me. I first tried jackfruit on pizza and I was so surprised how well it worked. It has this unusual pulled meat texture and works great as a pork or beef alternative. If your someone who loves meat alternatives but would like to but down on ultra processed foods, jackfruit is a great option.

Native to South India,  it is the largest tree fruit in the world and can reach up to 80 pounds in weight.

Jackfruit has a subtle flavour, but it does take on flavour really well. Making it lend to this slow cooking method really well. As well as being versatile jackfruit is also packed full of beneficial nutrients:

  • vitamin a
  • vitamin c
  • riboflavin
  • magnesium
  • potassium
  • copper
  • manganese

Paired with smoked paprika, herbs and tomatoes this stew is comforting and satisfying.
