These Vegan Pulled Jackfruit Tacos are so tasty and moist and yummy and did I say tasty? You'd swear they were made with juicy pulled pork that got to cook slowly for hours, when in fact, they only take minutes to make...

The first time I had jackfruit (or even heard of it, for that matter) was in a vegan restaurant, as part of a delicious sandwich that I had picked off their menu. After taking a couple of bites, I started to analyze what was in my sandwich and had a moment of real panic! What I saw looked exactly like pulled meat. Not only that, but it was just as crazy tasty and moist, too!  For a second there, I thought that I had made a royal mistake and assumed that the restaurant in question was purely vegan when in fact it was not. 

I literally stopped eating, looked at the menu, identified the ingredient in question — jackfruit — looked it up on the Internet and found this great article that told me everything I needed to know about jackfruit. Phew! Verification made, it was all good. I was indeed eating a true plant-based meat alternative. And a crazy, unbelievably good one, at that! 

I fell in love with it right then and there, and of course, it didn’t take long before I started cooking with it for myself… and once you’ve tasted it, I’ve no doubt that you will feel just the same! 

Trust me, this is only the first of many recipes on here featuring this magical ingredient!
