I was at a party recently and tried a BBQ sandwich made without pork, but with jackfruit! Never had jackfruit before, nor a jackfruit BBQ sandwich. Guess what? It was delicious! Thought I'd share a recipe to try. Click here. Also included is an avocado slaw to pare the sandwich with. This would work well for those interested in bringing a fun and different, but tasty dish to a BBQ or other event. Enjoy! Is jackfruit healthy? Jackfruit is a good source of fiber at 3 grams per cup, as well as vitamin c, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese!
Yours in great health!
