On a quest for a perfect Meatless Monday or Taco Tuesday recipe? Look no further than these jackfruit tacos!
If you’re new to plant-based eating, you may be wondering: What is jackfruit?
Thanks to its meat-like texture, jackfruit is a popular plant-based meat alternative. Due to its surge in popularity, you can find canned jackfruit at your local grocery or health food store.
As far as taste goes, jackfruit has a neutral flavor and it easily absorbs spices and flavors, which is why it works so well in this recipe!
Our jackfruit tacos feature our Magic Mushroom mix. Outside of a Choco Taco, the combination of chocolate and tacos may sound strange. But the chocolate flavor adds a richness and depth to these jackfruit tacos.
What makes this recipe so super? (Besides the superfoods, of course!) This dish comes together in less than 30 minutes, which means you can easily make these jackfruit tacos on a busy weeknight!
