BBQ Jackfruit Tacos

Jackfruit is a great meat alternative, and is often used to create a "pulled-meat" texture, great for burgers, sandwiches or in this case, tacos! This recipe for BBQ Jackfruit Jackfruit is really easy to follow and produces a super tasty vegan meal which is rich in fibre and potassium.

Thanks to the rise in availability of vegan food and alternatives, I was able to get hold of this tinned jackfruit from Morrison's supermarket (useful for those of you based in the UK), and it is also on offer in Aldi (again, in the UK) for their Veganuary specials. All the other ingredients are items you are likely to get hold of easily from any supermarket.
