Mouth Watering Moo Shu Jackfruit

With Scrambled JUSTEGG, Cucumbers & Hoisin Sauce

Have you tried jackfruit yet? It is probably the best vegan food you’re not eating but should be. With it you won’t be missing the meat at all! The texture of jackfruit is similar to chicken and pork and it has been commonly used as a meat substitute throughout Asia for many years, that’s why it’s often called “vegetarian meat.”

This Asian-inspired dish is basically a deconstructed, vegetarian version of the moo shu pork you’d find at your favorite Chinese take-out restaurant. It’s savory, with layers of texture and temperature. Yum!
