Yield: 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 pouch jackfruit
  • 1 cup Veganaise® or other vegan mayo alternative
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional as garnish)

Directions:

  • Remove jackfruit from the pack, drain water and rinse.
  • In a mid-sized mixing bowl smash into a shredded piece.
  • Add lemon juice and combine it with the jackfruit by smashing with the fork just a bit more.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well with fork.
  • Serve with seed crackers.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and spices as desired.

Notes:

Jackfruit is an excellent plant based source of fiber and is easy to find now in any health food store, ready to use. It's a whole fruit which can be found in the vegetable or bean aisle, in an easy to use pack. Simply drain the jackfruit from the packing water to start working with it!
When thinking of substituting foods like fish, it's important to find a whole foods alternative that offers a dense base of nutrition versus a highly processed plant based alternative meat. For this recipe we switched out the "fish" in a common tuna dip for a shredded jackfruit. Try it in a dish like this for a fun alternative to the standard tuna dip.
The crackers pictured are made from seeds. They're the Simple Mills brand.
