20-Minute Coconut Jackfruit Curry


Vegan jackfruit curry

This ridiculously simple recipe is my secret weapon, especially in cold months—when it’s already dark when you get home from work and you just want to eat something warm ASAP. This jackfruit curry comes together in less than 20 minutes! It’s been a family favorite for years. Jackfruit has grown in popularity in recent years as a meat substitute for its unique texture. You even can find canned jackfruit in most grocery stores!
