I have wanted to cook with jackfruit for forever, but was so nervous to try it. I have got to say - I am so glad i finally did!
I found this recipe from The Foodie Physician and ended up tweaking it a little bit because I didn’t have all th ingredients/wanted to get rid of some stuff in the fridge! Slow cookers are my favorite way to meal prep because you don’t have to take a huge chunk of time out of your day, you can make a lot at once, and its easy cleanup!
this recipe did not disapoint - if you try it, let me know what you think!
1 onion, chopped (I use onions)
4-5 stalks celery
1 can black beans
2 15 oz cans Jackfruit
2 cloves garlic
1 can chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped (JUST THE PEPPERS)
1 teaspoon of the adobo sauce from the can
3/4 cup water
hot sauce, to taste (I used Aldi’s New Orleans Style)
cumin, oregano, salt, to taste
GOt the ingredients? Awesome. Literally all you have to do is chop everything up, pull apart the jackfruit, and put it in the crockpot. cook on high for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. when it’s all done, place “meat” on a baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes.
