Jackfruit “Tuna” Sandwich

Hey Folks,

Lately, I have been making a lot of recipes with jackfruit. I was able to find the canned version via Trader Joes and picked up several cans. To me, it has the texture of chicken. Recently, I found a jackfruit tuna recipe and had to try it. Jackfruit is not just a meat substitute it has a few other benefits:

  • High in protein
  • Maintains blood pressure
  • Improves digestion
  • Boosts energy

There are several more benefits, but you can check them out here.

Jackfruit Tuna Recipe

I used to love my tuna sandwiches with loads of miracle whip and relish, which was how my mother made them, so I tweaked the recipe I found to suit my tastes. I would encourage you to do the same. If you like celery or onions in your tuna (yuck) go on ahead.  I do have to admit, the jackfruit was a little off in texture, and I would not eat it on day 2. Next time, I would probably not even use the parsley, which came straight out of my garden. I love being able to get herbs from my balcony.
