Jackfruit Meat

Add this to sandwiches, soufflés, casseroles… There are endless possibilities! It looks
like shredded chicken, but tastes way better.

This recipe comes from a blogger friend Marli, who has a wonderful vegan blog in
Portuguese, Na Casa da Ma. She authorized me to translate her recipe here and share to
it with you all. Thanks, lovely Marli!


1 can of green jackfruit or a papaya-size fresh jackfruit
1 big onion
Seasonings, to taste: pepper, paprika, garlic powder, zattar, mustard powder, curry,
½ cup green olives
1 TBS tamari (gluten-free) or soy sauce
Salt to taste (if using tamari, not too much)
1 TBS balsamic vinegar
1 tomato, finely chopped


Rinse jackfruit well and add to a pan with water. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook
until softened (ca. 1 hour). Check the pan after 30 minutes and add more boiling water.
When cooked, let it cool and then shred jackfruit with a knife, like you would do with

Sauté onion in a skillet. Then add seasonings, the shredded jackfruit, tamari, vinegar
and cook. Lastly add the tomato. When it looks almost ready, add chopped olives and
cook for another minute. Turn off the heat and add parsley.
