This was a special edition of #SaturdaySnackDown with Recipe Developer, Sahar Belle.  She made an amazing brunch for us, using the popular meat replacement, Jackfruit.  The Jackfruit is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family. Its origin is in the region of Southeast Asia.  Jackfruit is a popular vegan staple because it has the texture of meat, like pulled pork, and absorbs flavor very well, but doesn’t contain any of the cruelty!

Today, Sahar makes us irresistible, mouthwatering Jackfruit Tostadas.  BUT not just ANY boring plain Tostadas.  She makes homemade, Jackfruit Tostadas with Mexican Mirepoix.  They are multi-layered with total deliciousness.
