Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or just looking for some meat-free meal options, this Pulled Jackfruit Burrito Bowl is a great option. Jackfruit (if you haven’t heard) is an awesomely versatile fruit that mixes beautifully with herbs and spices to take on a taste and consistency similar to meat. Jackfruit is also a really sustainable crop with each tree able produce up to 2-3 tonnes of jackfruit per year. (Fun fact - the largest jackfruit on record was a massive 42.72 kg).
We have combined black beans and rice in this dish, which complement each other as plant-based proteins, providing a source of all of your essential amino acids. The avocado, olive oil and tahini provide a great source of healthy fats. This is a macronutrient complete meal with plenty of ingredients that have you covered for a massive variety of micronutrients as well.
Overall this is a really healthy dish that the whole family will love. It’s fun, fresh and full of flavour. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.
