Upton’s Naturals Thai Curry Jackfruit
Upton’s Naturals Thai curry jackfruit is a quick and easy vegetarian and vegan dinner that’s full of flavour. Jackfruit are in the fig, mulberry and breadfruit family, and are widely cultivated in tropical regions.
Upton’s Naturals use only young, green jackfruit grown in Thailand. Young jackfruit has a very mild flavour, but a meaty texture similar to pulled pork or chicken when cooked. To use, simply remove the Thai curry jackfruit pieces from the pouch and fry with a little oil for 8 – 10 minutes.
The jackfruit pieces are in a fragrant sauce with coconut milk, lemongrass and spices. Serve with boiled or steamed rice, or toss through mixed leaves and beansprouts for a Thai-inspired salad. The curried jackfruit is great with noodles, too, and is also a satisfying hot sandwich filling with some sweet mango chutney.
Jackfruit are a good source of fibre, vitamins A & C, potassium, iron and zinc.
Ingredients: jackfruit (74.5%), coconut milk (13%) (coconut extract, water), water, lemongrass, garlic, red chili, shallot, sea salt, galangal, coriander seed, kaffir lime peel, black pepper, cumin, sugar, spirit vinegar.
