Vegan Jackfruit Tacos

Think going vegan will be uninspiring? Think again. Introducing the wonderful little ingredient – Jackfruit. It is often said that jackfruit has a similar texture to slow cooked chicken or pulled pork, so it is perfect to load into these Mexican inspired tacos.

These fajitas take less than 5 mins to prep and then just whack in the oven and assemble.
