Active time: 10 minutes Total time: 25 minutes

Jackfruit is a sustainable tropical fruit with a mild flavor and dense, “meaty” texture that shreds just like barbecue pork. It’s also fiber-rich: A 1/2-cup (89g) serving supplies 29% of the USDA recommendation for fiber and 20% of daily potassium intake. Look for plain green jackfruit (without sauce) in cans or in the refrigerated section where you find tofu.

RD tip: While this meal is a great meat substitute for vegans, it is low in protein. Enjoy these sliders with a side of beans, or compensate with higher-protein meals during other parts of the day to hit your protein goal.
