Instructions
  1. Cut the jackfruit from core to outer edge. This will help to give it the shredded texture that looks like pulled pork
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and sauté
  3. Add jackfruit, veggie broth, maple syrup, lime juice plus the spices, combine and cover. Reduce the heat and let simmer until the jackfruit becomes tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, 5-7min
  4. Using a wooden spoon gently mash the jackfruit – you will see it separate and look more and more like pulled pork
  5. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving bowl
  6. Build the tacos to your liking using chopped tomato, avocado, pickled red onion and top with fresh cilantro and a garnish of lime wedges
  7. Serve and enjoy!
