After all of the holiday gluttony, I need something light and nourishing. These jerk jackfruit bowls are my go-to because they are absolutely beautiful yet equally delicious & filling. The flavor is out of this world and this meal comes together in less than 45 minutes. I'm using spices from my spice line, Big L's Blends, but feel free to use what you have on hand.
What is jackfruit anyway?
Jackfruit is a fruit akin to mulberry, fig and breadfuit. Its generally grown in Africa, Asia and South America and takes on the flavor of what its seasoned or marinated with. I enjoy it because of the mild flavor and amazing texture it has when roasted in the oven. Its one of my absolute favorite meat alternatives. I mainly reach for canned jackfruit for many reasons, but it is available in pouches and also sold whole at specialty grocery stores although I have seen it in its whole form at Publix recently.
