Bring some Mexican inspired zing to your spring with this flavourful chipotle jackfruit. This magical fruit can be swapped into a ton of recipes instead of meat, to make easy veggie or vegan alternatives. The bonus is that jackfruit is very low fat, and contains vitamins C, B, potassium, and magnesium to name a few, as well as being rich in antioxidants. Bazinga!
When you open the can (which can be found in Waitrose for around £2.50), jackfruit in water smells like elderflower, and the taste is a little fruity. But once you get it simmering in sauces and spices, it sucks up flavour like a sponge, giving you a beautifully fragrant meat substitute with a pulled pork like texture.
It's delicious with rice, wraps or even in buns, and can be used in chilli, curries, shepherd's pie and more. What's even better is that it is so easy to cook with, it can easily feature as a mid-week meat free meal, ready in moments.
