Jackfruit is a versatile ingredient for a meat substitute. The trick I have found to make it perfect is to roast it in the oven. Here is how I roast my jackfruit and it turns out perfect every time.
- 1 can jackfruit, in brine, drained, rinsed, shredded
- All-Purpose Seasoning
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Make sure you throughly rinse the jackfruit. Otherwise, it will have a briny taste.
I usually shredded mine as I am rinsing the jackfruit. It is multitasking at its finest.
Spread the shredded jackfruit onto a sheet pan.
Generously season the jackfruit with the All-Purpose Seasoning.
Note: I will sometimes use my Smokey Southwestern Seasoning instead of the All-Purpose Seasoning, if I want to make some Tex-Mex.
Roast for 10 minutes; stir jackfruit, and roast for an additional 10 minutes.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
