Wondering how to buy Jackfruit and use it for an easy, amazing recipe? Buy it in the can from your local Asian market or health food store (or Amazon) and throw everything in a pot Jambalaya style!
I popped on a livestream video with Vegan Dave in his private Facebook Group Go Vegan With Dave's Vegan Adventures and Dave made this basic "Forks Over Knives" recipe even better by adding more tomatoes, more broth, more rice and more heat, as follows! Head on over to that link and request to join the group if you want to see him in action in his weekly livestream cooking show,
"A Man's Gotta Eat...Vegan!"
