Are you ready to be obsessed with this Jackfruit Coconut Curry Soup?
Jackfruit is a superfood that comes from the largest fruit tree in the world. This beautiful fruit is native to South India and has an impressive nutrition profile that includes antioxidants, fiber, and protein.
If you’ve never tried unripened Jackfruit before I can best describe it as tasting kind of like artichoke hearts. It’s pretty neutral in flavor and has a bulky consistency like most meat. When jackfruit is fully ripe it becomes sweeter like other tropical fruit and you might want to add it to your smoothie or in a summer salad.
When you purchase unripened jackfruit at the store it is usually canned or in packs with water and salt. I always recommend draining and rinsing jackfruit prior to use to reduce the sodium content.
Cooking with Jackfruit
For this recipe, we are using unripened jackfruit, which is a wonderful plant-based alternative to meat. There are so many ways to enjoy jackfruit. Feel free to play around with spicing it up! You can add to a stir-fry or shred it and make vegan “pulled pork” jackfruit tacos or sliders (yum!).
