What is jackfruit?

Jackfruit is a tropical fruit native to Asia that resembles pulled pork when cooked.

Along with the likes of tofu and seitan, jackfruit is becoming a popular meat alternative for people following plant-based diets.

Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world – a single fruit can weigh over 100lb! You can buy cans of jackfruit (generally in water) at a range of UK supermarkets.

What does it taste like?

Jackfruit is dense and fibrous, and often described as meat-like in taste and texture when cooked.

It’s a versatile ingredient that is quick to take on the flavours of the spices it’s cooked with.

Jackfruit burger recipe

We’ve used jackfruit to make a vegan ‘pulled’ meat substitute – ideal for spooning into soft bread rolls and enjoying as part of a SmartPoints®-friendly barbecue.

Teamed with celeriac fries, the entire dish comes to just 6 SmartPoints!  See recipe here.

So whether you’re a lifelong vegan or you just fancy a meat-free dish, try our incredible jackfruit burgers this summer.

They’re perfect for al fresco dinners during the week, or weekend garden gatherings with friends and family.
