it’s #JaneUnChained LIVE with Tracy Childs of Veg-Appeal (stepping in for Erin Reilly-Carasco) on #SnackDownSaturday showing an innovative recipe for Jackfruit Non-Chick’n Salad adapted from The Jackfruit Company‘s recipe! Have you ever used jackfruit to replace meat? Have you eaten it RAW? Tune in and let’s discuss! In this video we discuss the Healing America Healthcare movement partnership with PlantDiego and PlantPure Nation to introduce the concept of healthy plant-based diets to our local health care system. This is a PILOT program that can be soon adopted by any city with the tools we have developed.
Jackfruit can be used for a great meat replacement and the trick is to infuse it with flavor. Tracy uses vegetable broth and spices to marinate it. The large fruit is intimidating to look at but no worries you can buy it canned and easily use it in recipes! Unlike meat, jackfruit is full of fiber which is wonderful for the body and eating it promotes a cruelty-free diet. Tracy’s secret ingredient is chick pea miso which is great for your digestive system and also gives the mayonnaise a wonderful flavor!
Also discussed, Vegan Ladyboss ,and our new chapter in San Diego (women-run vegan business networking!) These ladies sure are lucky to have an amazing plant-based cooking instructor like Tracy on the team to bring them this amazing Jackfruit salad to their potluck later! Try to make it at home with the recipe below!
