Hearty Jackfruit BBQ Soup
This is the first time I used Jackfruit in a soup/stew. It turned out hearty and delicious, with lots of flavors. There’s a hint of Indian and Middle Eastern flavors. It is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. You can make a batch on Sunday and eat all week. It is perfect as a main dish, with a side salad, or other sides of your choice.

Recipe Notes

   

Cooks Notes: 

I wanted to show my readers what Jackfruit looks like before it ends up in the packaging or canned “ready to use” ingredient.  It is a major process to start from the fruit, cleaning and extracting the  flesh/seeds for use in recipes. I have posted a link to a YouTube Video below so you can see how to cut a Jackfruit to get the flesh and seeds. Try it if you are so inclined!

The Jackfruit BBQ one-pot soup meal you’ll find taste and easy to make. We love one-pot meals. I tend to add more veggies to thicken up the soup, so it’s more like a stew. We layered our big soup bowls with spring mix salad and added the soup on top. Yummy!

Enjoy!
