Cajun-Braised Jackfruit

Cajun-Braised Jackfruit

In case you didn’t know by now, I absolutely love the versatility of jackfruit. This cajun-braised jackfruit is the first jackfruit recipe I ever made and it is still my favorite. We make this recipe almost every week. This jackfruit is perfect for grain bowls, tacos or just on it’s own! I recommend pairing this spicy jackfruit with coconut rice and black beans!

 

Jackfruit "Crab" Cakes

To be honest, the only thing I “miss” being a vegan is shellfish. Growing up on the coast of Maine, we ate lots of seafood! The summer time was meant for grilled fish, fried fisherman’s platters, and crab cakes. These jackfruit “crab” cakes mimic the real thing pretty darn close, though. I’m convinced that my seafood loving father could be tricked into thinking these are the real thing (well, at least 90% convinced).

Classic Black Bean Burger

I love making homemade veggie burgers because they are so easy and versatile! This classic black bean burger is no exception. Spicing is the key to taking this burger from boring to bold. If you’re not afraid of spice, don’t be afraid to add a little extra chili pepper or some jalapenos! If you want to keep it simple, toss these burgers on a salad or a bun with a little ketchup.

Jackfruit "Crab" Rangoons

There is something about a lazy movie night that always has me craving Chinese. We have been enjoying a lot of appetizers for dinner recently, but this has quickly become my favorite. I had not realized how long it had been since I was able to enjoy a crab rangoon! Growing up, they were a staple in our take-out order. However, since becoming a vegetarian so many years ago, I have not been able to munch on these savory treats.
